Fence Guard and Corrugated Fence Cap Installation

Attention to Detail Assures Proper Installation

There are several options when installing Fence cap along with windscreen. 

One option is to specify the custom height and adjust it to 4.5 inches from the highest point on the fence to allow the fabric hem to fall below the Fence Guard/Corrugated Fence Cap, as seen here with the Yellow Fence Guard.

Use a 50lb & 120lb test Tie-Wraps combination on your screen. Place the 50lb Tie-Wraps along the top and halfway down the sides of your screen. Place the 120lb Tie-Wraps along the bottom and halfway up the sides of your screen. If there is a grommet strip, use 120lb Tie-Wraps to install the grommet strip.

We recommend this technique so that in high winds, the top 50lb Tie-Wraps will break, allowing the top to fold over the bottom and keeping the screen from flapping against an abrasive surface.

Using the correct fasteners will give you a better chance of preventing wind damage, which is the number one cause of screen deterioration.

Finally, some installers prefer the windscreen to go underneath the fence guard/corrugated fence cap and then place the tie wrap directly through the windscreen fabric. While this technically creates a weak spot, it has not presented any historical problems due to the nature of knitted fabrics not fraying or unraveling.


Non-knitted fabric such as VCP should NOT be punctured for any reason in the field.  Any alterations can void the manufacturer’s warranty.


Corrugated Fence Cap is such a tight fit that often there are no tie wraps needed.  Those who prefer to use tie wraps can either go around the fence cap and through the fence mesh and fabric, or they can order a custom height, allowing for hem to fall below the cap, as shown above in picture 1.
