    Steel, iron, and aluminum products may be galvanized; that is, coated with zinc to form a zinc oxide barrier to corrosion of the substrate metal. Zinc can be applied at different thicknesses for more or less protection. Thickness is reflected in the price. Care must be taken in handling to avoid scratching the galvanized finish. Field cuts and drill holes require treatment with zinc-containing paint to repair the anti-corrosive barrier. In highly corrosive environments (seashore, air pollution, in-ground, chemical contact, subject to physical abrasion) galvanization can eventually erode away, exposing the substrate metal to oxidation (rust).

    Yes, galvanized corrugated sheets will discolor, rust and generally lose their coating with time. People actually pay more for metal that is distressed looking, so if that's the look you are going for, you will get it in time, or can hurry it up by spraying it with muriatic or other acid.

    The fence is made from galvanized corrugated aluminum panel, with a wood frame around it and wood cap on top.

    Where do you buy the metal? We have been looking for it and can't find it.

    what is the material used in this photo? I can't make out the footing-concrete?
  • jaceymae
    pca akes, I too want to do a metal cutout fence. I'm attempting to use corrugated for the stiffness. Will you be using a plasma cutter, or do you know?

    I love this fence but would like to know if the Corrugated metal is on top of a wooden fence or just on its own. I have a Wooden fence which must stay that I share with neighbors, but really want this look. So I want help in how to attach the Metal ( Or Fiberglass) to the fence. Am concerned about circulation between the 2 materials. Thoughts? Many Thanks, VL California
  • Michalene Edwards
    I would not worry about the circulation between the two fences. You can attach the metal directly to the wood fence with galvanized screws. The part I can't tell you is how to cap the top and bottom because I don't know what your fence looks like. I hope this helps.

    How do construct the supporting framework of this fence?
  • lancecrane
    I have a similar fence in the northwest. The metal is turned sideways.
    Yes, it will reflect heat in the summer.
    If you use new metal, you could wipe it down with muratic acid to take away the shine. Commonly used metal is applied.
    It is as wind resistant as any fence would be. No more, no less.

          Corrugated Metal FenceThe feel of this fence is completely different from the previous metal fence. This fence has an industrial or agricultural vibe. It is a budget-conscious choice and can be constructed by homeowners who have moderate to high DIY skills. (Check your city building codes before constructing any fence, as these can vary widely.)When to use: When privacy and economy are prime considerations. Some metal can rust or discolor over time, so take this into consideration before choosing this fencing option. When not to use: This type of fence is style-specific, so consider the style of your home before constructing this fence. It speaks well to contemporary, farmhouse and industrial architecture but not to traditional styles. Like all vertical fences, it will pull the eye upward; for single-story houses, you should consider another style of fencing, unless there’s a tree canopy you would like to highlight as a focal point.Points to consider: When planting along a corrugated metal fence, consider vertical plants, like certain ornamental grasses, ‘Sky Pencil’ hollies (Ilex crenata ‘Sky Pencil’, USDA zones 5 to 9; find your zone), noninvasive pillar-shaped barberry cultivars like ‘Orange Rocket’ (Berberis thunbergii ‘Orange Rocket’, zones 4 to 9) or trees like ‘Slender Silhouette’ sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua ‘Slender Silhouette’, zones 5 to 10). Plants with a vertical growth habit will not compete with the lines of your fencing.Guide: Pros and cons of corrugated metal

          Brian Barth added this to A Deer Fence Can Be Decorative as Well as ProtectiveJul 21, 2015

          Build a wall. Deer are much less likely to jump when they can’t see what’s on the other side. Unlike a see-through fence, the accepted height for a deerproof wall is about 6 feet. Walls can easily be monstrous in form— and in their impact to a landscaping budget. However, there are some slender, inexpensive options, such as a corrugated metal wall like the one pictured here.

          Frank Organ added this to How to Design a Calming Minimalist GardenSep 11, 2013

          Set BoundariesMinimalism in the garden should should start with boundaries. Because minimalist design is about restriction, especially in the use of color within the overall design, the choice of what is used — be it fencing, walls or hedges — is vital to creating a successful scheme. Neutral colors tend to be the most popular, as they are calming and understated. Unpainted, galvanized, corrugated metal panels have been used here; the natural furrows and ridges create texture and shadow.

          Billy Goodnick Garden Design added this to How to Pick a Nice Wall for Your Garden RoomAug 6, 2013

          Creating a contemporary feel comes easily when you substitute corrugated metal panels for wood. The rhythmically undulating surface complements delicately vertical plants, like thrashing reed (Thamnochortus insignis, zones 9 to 11), a South African native right at home in this simple, stylish corner of the yard. Tip: Building and zoning codes may include restrictions about how high walls and fences can be within the setback areas of your property. Check with local officials before setting the height and location of your walls.

          Not just for roofs, CGI can be used in a variety of applications, such as this fence.

          A solid fence of wood posts and rails with a corrugated infill creates a striking presence. And the plantings certainly soften the fence, creating a nice combination of textures and colors. This is ideal for transitional or contemporary architecture, as it combines a clean, modern aesthetic with softer, older materials. And this fence is great at providing privacy as well as security.

          Amy Renea added this to Soften Modern Landscape Lines With PlantsDec 7, 2011

          Metal ribbed panels could read industrial and cold, but whimsical grasses make them come alive. The vertical line of the grasses echoes the line of the ribbing but moves with the wind. Also notice the bright green ground-hugging plants on the wall's top and bottom.

          I've always had a thing for corrugated metal, whether it's used on the outside of a building or the inside (such as on the back of an island), so I love this fence. The tall, wispy plants stand out against the color and texture of the corrugated metal.
