Modern Fence Technologies' value engineering and commitment to quality show in this next generation of value engineered gate hinges.

Note the round post and square frame application.

Innovative design solves challenges.

“We're thankful to God and our partners in industry for the many quality minded fence contractors and distributors who have made our products successful..."

Modern Fence Technologies began forty years ago as a fence installation company doing business as All City Fence in Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Since then it has grown and changed over the years to become the industry's foremost innovator of fence accessories and hardware. The newest entry is the adjustable chain link hinge.

This latest entry into the long list of value engineered solutions offered by the company is a series of hinges for chain link that allow the installer to adjust the gate after it is hung. They can be self-closing, and, to make gate fabrication more efficient, allow the installer to use round or square stock for the gate frame, while retaining the round terminal post most often used in chain link applications. Available in sizes suitable for residential gates, and all the way up to 8 5/8”, this newly introduced hinge can be found now at, or by calling the East Troy, Wisconsin based company.

In contrast, most traditional hinges are non-adjustable, and only work with gates and posts made of round tube, requiring more complicated, and often less stable, gate fabrication.

Company leaders Mark and Marge Knudson have worked over the years with the help of countless co-workers to show their ardent support of American businesses. Modern Fence Technologies prides itself on being American made, from American materials. In an economy in which businesses are cutting corners to shave a little more profit, the Knudson's refuse to reduce the quality of the company's products. Instead, the company relies on quality, a strong reputation, and the determination to educate both consumers and contractors that value matters.

After weathering the recent economic downturn, Modern Fence Technologies is experiencing rapid growth, as customers who had turned to low priced imports have found that the savings realized initially are more than offset by loss of customer satisfaction and the cost of warranty replacement.

When asked what was next, Mr. Knudson pointed out that the value engineered solutions produced by Modern Fence Technologies are sought out by contractors large and small, working on jobs ranging in size from residential fences to large, federally funded transportation jobs. Adding new products helps the industry to meet the needs of the customer. “We're thankful to God and our partners in industry for the many quality minded fence contractors and distributors who have made our products successful. There are a lot more new ideas coming from Modern Fence Technologies in the next year...stay tuned.”, said Mark Knudson.
