How are the steel panels joined together? - How are the steel plates joined together? Are they stainless steel bolts?

These panels are butted together and bolted in place. I believe we used zinc coated lag screws with a washers that have rubber bonded to one side. The rubber on the washer allows for some expansion and limits corrosion between the 2 different metals. Hope this helps.

Thanks! We're happy to tell you what it is but need some clarification? If you are curious about a plant can you describe which one, none are actually growing on the fence.

The product is called lumasite. Check this link: Also try googling it. You should be able to find several sources.

what is the fence made of? The panels that fill in the support pieces. It looks semi-transparent but private at the same time. Are the support pieces metal?

Thanks, The steel panels are attached to steel post with lag bolts. The posts are set in concrete footings. Hope this helps.

Hello Phillips Garden... What gauge are the cort-en panels & are they standing alone or wrapping cinder block? Thank you!

what technique is used to create the rust color?

Mother Nature's process is called OXIDATION. I think they artificially speed up the process by applying an acid? They then stop the process when the desired look is achieved and seal the metal to prevent further rusting. Google "oxidized CORTEN steel" for better info.

We just allow the steel to weather naturally. It takes about a year or so to get a good coating and then the oxidation process slows. With corten/weathering steel the alloy composition is such that the outer rust layers creates a protective barrier and slow the oxidation process thus extending the life of the material.

Translucency can also be achieved with other materials, such as the LUMAsite (reinforced acrylic) used for this cedar-framed fence.
