HDPE Technical Properties

  • Melt Index: (.6) a low melt index is an indication of enhanced stress and crack resistance
  • Density: (.957) high density for maximum stiffness without becoming brittle
  • Maximum Temperature: (250* F / 121* C) Polyethylene will not distort until it reaches this temperature.
  • Minimum Temperature: (-76* F / -60* C) Polyethylene will stay flexible at this temperature.
  • Tensile Strength: (3700 psi) Polyethylene will not suffer any distortions at lesser load or impact.

How many slats are included in each order?

Each order contains 82 vertical Advantage Slats, which are sufficient to cover 10 linear feet of fencing.

How do I know how many bags to order?

To determine the number of bags of Advantage Slats you need, measure the total length of the fence you wish to cover and divide that number by 10. For instance, if your fence is 130 feet long, you would need 13 bags of slats (130 ÷ 10 = 13).

How tall are the slats?

The height of the Advantage Slats corresponds to the size of your fence, with the slats being approximately 2 inches shorter than the fence height you select. This is to accommodate the bottom locking channel. For example, for a 6-foot fence height, the Advantage Slats will measure around 5 feet 10 inches.

Will the slats fade from heat or cold exposure?

Advantage Slats are crafted from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and include UV inhibitors to resist damage from the sun. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, ensuring durability in both hot and cold climates.
