With a team of fabricators, ten thousand square feet of fabrication shop and certified Computer Aided Designers, your fence will be a masterpiece! The types and styles of ornamental fences is almost endless; limited only by your imagination.

If you are looking for tried and true prefabricated ornamental fencing, American Fence Company works with reputable prefabricated ornamental manufacturers.

Regardless if you are seeking ornamental that is truly unique or tried and true; your ornamental fence should be a work of art that reflects your taste and design. Nothing ordinary will do. This can only be accomplished through our five step customer service.

  1. We want to conduct a consultation with every customer. Each business is unique thus requiring personal one on one attention with the customer. If you are looking for custom ornamental, we will even provide you with a computer design of your fence prior to fabrication. You will know exactly what you are getting down to the very last detail.
  2. We stake your yard prior to installation.  After we have identified your underground public utilities, we will stake the location of your fence, including gates, corners and ends. We will even help you get a legal survey done if you are not sure of your property boundary.
  3. We create a drawing indicating each post location. “One size does not fit all” when it comes to your company. Customers will have the opportunity to approve where every post and gate will be placed prior to installation.
  4. We create a custom drawing of each fence panel after the posts are installed. Each panel is drawn to within a ¼”. We do this to ensure that each panel is custom fit to fit between the posts, considering slopes and spaces between posts.
  5. Custom panels are built for each section. Each section is built to ¼” tolerances and individually numbered to ensure correct and custom installation. We believe that an “off the rack” fence installation is unacceptable for you and your commercial property.

Ornamental Fencing FAQ

Will my fence rust, fade, peel or chip?
Without question, this is the greatest concern with ornamental fencing. Consequently, you should not purchase a metal fence system unless it has been:

  1. Powder Coating. This coating provides a plastic like candy apple coating to metal products. It is powder that is applied to the fence and then melted in an oven, creating a baked-on tough coating.
  2. Galvanizing. Leaving your fence with a shiny silver coating, galvanizing seals the fence from rust and corrosion with a zinc rich finish. Though this is a great application to prevent rust; unfortunately, most paint applications do not adhere to the shiny galvanized finish unless first brush blasted.

With over forty years of steel fabrication, American Fence Company stands firm on only providing products with these forms of coatings. Don’t settle for anything less.

Can you customize my fence?
We have fabricated literally thousands of different fence and railing designs with the following process.  Regardless if you purchase American Ornamental fence system, other pre-fabricated fence systems or a custom fence; we can add a unique appeal to your fence and gates. We offer custom metals options to all our branches, including Grand Island, Nebraska; Omaha, Nebraska; Lincoln, Nebraska; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Sioux City, Iowa; Iowa City, Iowa; Des Moines, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Rochester, Minnesota.

Are the posts set in concrete?
All posts are set in a wet mix concrete. Dry mix with water added later is not acceptable.

Is field welding acceptable?
Only when absolutely necessary. Never let anyone field weld or “stick build” your ornamental fence in the field.  The welds are immediately exposed to the elements where high humidity levels or dew can immediately start the materials to rust.  All panels should be completely shop fabricated with bolt-on connections to the posts. Field welds do violate the powder coated finish and can only be touched up with manufacturer’s touch-up system.
