Creating a Finished Edge for Your Fence

Have you ever needed to cut a roll of mesh pool fence material, only to wonder how to give it a finished edge? This guide will show you how to achieve a polished look using “Border Tape” and “Border with 1 Thread,” while ensuring the durability of the fence.

What You’ll Need:

Steps to Create a Finished Edge:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Make sure you have all the necessary items ready: Border Tape, Border with 1 Thread, scissors, and the material you are installing.

Step 2: Apply Border Tape

Place the sticky side of the border tape along the edge of the cut material.

Step-by-step guide to finishing a cut edge on fencing material using Border Tape and Border with 1 Thread for a professional, durable look.

Step 3: Attach the Border with 1 Thread

Fold the border with 1 thread over the cut material, ensuring both sides are covered by the border.

Step 4: Secure the Tape

Gradually peel off the red tape (about 4-6 inches at a time). Be careful not to remove too much at once, as the material will stick immediately upon contact.

Step 5: Smooth the Tape

Continue pulling off the red tape along the length of the cut material. Run your fingers over the border as you go to ensure it sticks evenly.

Step 6: Flip the Material

Turn the mesh and border over so the tape you just applied is now on the bottom.

Step 7: Repeat on the Opposite Side

Repeat Steps 3, 4, and 5 on the other side of the material.

Step 8: Finalize the Edge

You now have a cut piece of material with a finished edge. Complete the installation by attaching a molding on top with screws. This method can be used for any fence installation requiring a cut!

By following these steps, you can achieve a professional and durable finish on your fence installations.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
