Vinyl / PVC Scallop Picket Installation Guide


 

Vinyl / PVC Scallop Picket Fence

1. Getting Started
• Be sure to check underground prior to digging
• Assemble gates (if necessary) and decide where they will be located
• Stake out the fence line
• Space and mark post hole locations for sections (spacer bar/template may be useful)
• Start at gate end post and work outward to determine proper fence height relative to ground

2. Dig Holes
• Dig holes 50cm deep or to frost line
- hole size for 125mm x 125mm posts = 250mm
- hole size for 100mm x 100mm posts = 200mm
• Clean holes and check for straight walls

3. Install First Post
• Insert post in hole
• Determine rough height
• Fill hole around post with concrete mix (sand, gravel and cement) approximately 5cm below ground level
• Tamp concrete in hole to eliminate air pockets
• Level and square post

4. Install Bottom Rail
• Insert rail into post - Note: Pickets will attach to rail on the side with the small holes
• Rail ends have been crimped to hold inside posts

5. Install Second Post
• Insert second post in hole
• Insert bottom rail in post
• Insert block under bottom rail to position at correct fence height
• Fill hole around second post with concrete mix
• Tamp, level and square fence
• Assembly may be continued by installing all bottom rails first, or one section at a time

6. Support and Secure
• Level and square fence
• To lower a post, place a wood block from corner to corner on the post and carefully tap with a mallet
• Never strike the PVC post without a wood support

7. Install Pickets and Rails
• Insert top rail in post
• Rail ends have been crimped to hold inside posts

8. Install Pickets
• For field assembly, insert hex washer head screw through large pre-drilled hole in top rail
• Align pre-drilled hole in picket, tighten with deep socket wrench or nut driver with clutchdrill (do not overtighten)
• Repeat for bottom rail
• Insert hole plug into picket's hole

9. Secure Rails
• Square pickets and rails
• Check for even picket spacing on each end of rail
• Top rail may be secured inside post with screw on each end (optional)

10. Hang Gate/Install Hardware
• Position gate between posts
• Allow 15mm gap for hinge, latch and gate swing
• Block up gate to square with fence; rails should be level
• Gate hardware must be mounted to two sides of the steel inserted post

11. Solidify Gate Posts
• It is critical that gate hinge and latch posts are solid to ensure proper gate functionality using aluminum gate post insert
• Slide aluminum gate insert inside hinge, latch or end posts with open end facing routed hole
• Drive a screw through the vinyl into the aluminum insert at the bottom of the post to hold in place
• Insert post into ground
• Fill hole with concrete around outside of post

12. Install Caps
• Install post caps
• Caps may be secured with glue, silicone adhesive or screws
