Project Spotlight: Grand Junction VA Medical Center
Scope of Project: The Grand Junction VA Medical Center purchased Trex Fencing to enclose a utility area on the hospital property. The fence was installed by Taylor Fence Company.
For this project, the VA Medical Center requested a fence of 10′ in height to ensure the equipment was secured and completely hidden from sight. In this case, Taylor Fence used an aluminum bottom rail as a mid-rail and extra bottom rail covers to create a second stack of pickets giving the fence not just the extra height, but greater strength as well. The VA Medical Center also purchased a double gate to allow easy access to the utility area.
The usage of Trex fencing materials for utility enclosures for commercial or government applications is not uncommon. It is also used frequently for dumpster enclosures. The durability and strength of the product sets it apart from vinyl but also ensures low-maintenance in comparison to wood. It also can be built up to 12′ in height, which is rare for most fencing materials. The look of the fence is just as important. Trex offers a softer, more attractive alternative to either masonry or chain link (which were initially considered by the VA).
