Board and batten fencing, also sometimes called board on batten fencing, offers superior privacy,
making it ideal for security fencing and a great commercial fence option.
If you’re considering board and batten fencing, here is what you
need to know.
What is board and batten?
Board and batten refers to a system of wide boards and alternating thinner
strips called battens. The most common type of board and batten system
have boards that are about a foot wide with battens that are about a half-inch
wide, but they come in all different sizes. In some cases, the boards
and battens are hung vertically and attached to posts, while in other
cases, they are horizontal. Some board and batten fences are actually
reverse board and batten styles, with larger battens and smaller boards.
What are the advantages of board and batten fences?
If you are looking for complete privacy, board and batten fences are the
choice for you. Because the battens obscure any open slats between the
boards, no one can see through the fence from outside. This also makes
them good for security purposes. They are reliable dog fences and are
good for closing off a pool area. For commercial spaces, board and batten
fences can also be useful. They are especially ideal for restaurants that
wish to enclose an outdoor dining area or other business with an outdoor
space for customers to sit, since they offer privacy and can be easily
incorporated into the design.
What is the installation process like?
Board and batten fences should be installed by fencing professionals to
ensure that the pieces are evenly spaced and put in place securely. Your
installer can also help you make the right choices about height, color,
and overall design of your fence.
