About ChinaZhejiangShowtech Fence vinyl fences:
What is Showtech Fence Vinyl made of?
Showtech Fence’s exclusive vinyl is formulated from raw materials including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), UV inhibitors and impact modifiers. Showtech Fence uses only premium ingredients to insure superior performance.

We offer a wide range of fence styles, from privacy to picket, and ornamental to ranch fencing. Numerous options are available to give you the widest possible selection. All fence styles have matching gates in standard configurations.
Is vinyl safe and durable for everyday use?
Yes! Showtech Fence cares about its customers. Showtech Fence’s products are safe, even for the youngest members of your family. All of our vinyl has a smooth surface. There are no nails, sharp edges, or splinters. Not only do our products hold up to regular property maintenance, but they're also made to bounce back on impact because they're reinforced with steel or aluminum inserts. It is wise, however, to be careful when using mowers, trimmers, or clippers along your fence line.
Does the line of Showtech Fence products meet safety and building codes?
Most of our products meet or exceed local, state and national building codes. We recommend that you contact your local area building department to verify your particular codes due to the fact that building codes tend to vary from region to region.
Is Showtech Fence Vinyl environmentally safe? Does it contain lead?
Showtech Fence’s products are safe and non-toxic. They do not contain lead or require the heavy metals and dangerous chemicals needed to treat and maintain wood. All of Showtech Fence’s products are environmentally safe, and because lumber isn't used (except the wood powder for the wood effect), trees are left standing. There aren't any chemicals used that might contaminate your yard, and our vinyl doesn't break down when exposed to soil, groundwater or the elements of nature.
Is it strong?
www.showtechfence.com is proud to bring you Showtech Fence’s vinyl products which have 5 times the tensile strength and 4 times the flexibility of wood. Showtech Fence has improved it’s performance by making it’s systems even sturdier by adding cross-braces in gates, reinforced ribs in rails, and has increased the stability of it’s railing system with maintenance-free metal inserts.
Will it burn?
This premium vinyl has a high flash point of 900°F, so it doesn't ignite easily. If fire is held to it, it will burn. But as soon as the flame is removed, the vinyl will self-extinguish.
Will it turn yellow?
No. Yellowing in vinyl products is due to the sun's ultraviolet rays. Showtech Fence’s products contain an industry leading 10 parts per 100 of titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is an extremely effective UV inhibitor. This amount of TiO2 is more than enough to prevent breakdown from the sun's ultraviolet rays.
Will it crack?
All materials expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures. But impact modifiers act as an added safety measure, adding flexibility to our vinyl so that it'll give instead of crack or splinter like wood. Our products are designed to operate under normal home or horse owner conditions, and will only crack under extreme circumstances.
How can it be cleaned?
All of our Showtech Fence, railing systems, and garden accessories are designed to be maintenance-free and usually only require the occasional rinse with a garden hose. If more serious cleaning is necessary, a soft bristled brush with detergent or even a mild bleach solution will do the trick. Cleaning products should always be tested on a hidden section of your product before using on exposed areas.
Will it mildew?
Showtech Fence vinyl has a smooth, non-porous surface, which makes it difficult for mildew to grow. If conditions are humid enough, mildew can appear. If it does, it can be easily removed with water and/or a mild bleach solution.
How is a Showtech Fence fence installed?
Basically, Showtech Fence’s fences are installed just like wood fences. Most components are precut and routed from the factory. First, posts are secured to the ground with concrete footings. Then rails are inserted into posts and finally pickets into rails. A properly installed Showtech Fence fence is a strong, durable, lifetime fence.
Do Showtech Fence products come with a warranty?
Yes. In fact, no other manufacturer offers a Lifetime Warranty like Showtech Fence. It is non-prorated, and covers materials (repair or replacement) for a lifetime.
Is Showtech Fence Vinyl more expensive than wood?
Initially, vinyl products cost more than wood (unless you're buying premium wood, then they're about the same cost). When you consider the costs incurred in regular staining, painting, or maintenance of a wood fence system, vinyl is the most sensible and economical purchase. It is a one time investment that will perform for a lifetime! Vinyl products have never been a more attractive purchase.
Glossary of Vinyl Fence Terminology
What is Polyvinyl Chloride? (PVC)
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC): PVC is the main component in the manufacturing process of Showtech Fence products. There are many chemical forms of vinyl. Some formulations are flexible. Others are termed "rigid." Showtech Fence Vinyl is formulated out of this rigid dry-blend compound developed for high output extrusion. Showtech Fence’s exclusive formula is blended for outdoor toughness and high quality
What are Impact modifiers?
Showtech Fence utilizes impact modifiers as an important ingredient for all of its vinyl products. These impact modifiers add just enough flexibility to Showtech Fence’s vinyl so that its fence systems will flex under most impacts. Many fence styles are reinforced with rust resistant steel inserts to assure strength and stability. Showtech Fences are designed to look like new, even after years of use.
