Who is using it and why:

Trex® Fencing is a composite fence made from a proprietary blend of 95% recycled wood fiber and plastic. This unique product eliminates the negative attributes of a typical wood fence or vinyl fence and capitalizes on their virtues. Trex Fencing never needs painting or staining, won’t rot or decay, and will not become brittle or weak with age.

The quality and virtues of Trex Fencing is what makes this fencing product popular for residential use but also for commercial, industrial, and governmental projects.

Trex Fencing is regularly being used as a product of choice for numerous municipalities and HOA’s across the country as well as for companies such as Electrify America, Love’s Travel Stops, Panera Bread, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Tesla, Walmart and numerous others.

One of the best reasons to consider Trex Fencing is its ability to adapt to various heights. From 2′ tall wall toppers to 12′ tall sound barriers, Trex Fencing is used in commercial applications to get the exact height needed. Trex Fences are not made from pre-built panels, which provides a huge advantage when the fence has be adapted to fit a particular space, or needs to be shortened or heightened. While six foot tall is the most common height for a fence, commercial projects often require an eight foot tall fence for perimeters or a 10 foot tall fence for HVAC equipment. Where necessary, steel post inserts and aluminum bottom rails give the Trex fence better rigidity and durability than other materials.
