How do I build the panels for a Pre-fabricated Ornamental Fence?

Some pre-fabricated ornamental fence panels are delivered unassembled.  Each panel is a combination of pickets, grommets, rails and rods.  If your panels are unassembled, follow the below easy assemble tips.

  1. The pickets will have holes that align with the empty cavity at the top of each rail.
  2. Lay the rails out so that the holes are enclosed in this cavity.  It is best to create a jig after fully assembling one panel, placing the rails in the right location and lining-up the pickets evenly along the bottom.
  3. Install the grommets into the rails.
  4. Slide the pickets through the rails.  Again, makesure the holes in the rails are enclosed (hidden) in the top cavity of the rails.  If encountering difficulty with pickets pulling the grommets into the rails, use soapy water and spray the grommet before attempting to slide the picket through.
  5. Once all the pickets are in place, slide the rods down through the cavity of the rails and through the holes in the pickets.
  6. Make sure that the rod does not miss the hole and run along side of the picket. 
  7. Put a very slight crimp in the last ½” of your rod.  Spin the rod as you insert it.  The crimped end is more able to catch the hole if it is slightly off-set. 
  8. Slide the rod through all the pickets.
