Their patented Ring Locks. Most manufacturers notch the rail components, which can weaken the wall and potentially fail if someone or some thing collides into the fence. The Bufftech Fence Ring Lock has proven to be exceptionally strong. The hidden Ring Lock eliminates the nails, screws or staples that eventually rust and fail.
Not necessarily. There are several heavy walled fence profiles on the market that contain low-grade fillers and are not a quality product. Wall thickness is only one element of quality. The vinyl formulation that gives the product strength, flexibility and protects it from the elements is the most important factor. Bufftech Fence profiles have ample wall thickness without sacrificing the quality throughout the profile. Wouldn’t you rather invest in a vinyl fence that doesn’t skimp on the key ingredients?
Bufftech has perfected a formula to ensure its lasting quality. The quality of the ingredients and the proportions are important. For example, Bufftech Fence uses 12 parts per 100 of Titanium Dioxide (Ti02) as a U.V. inhibitor. That is more than any other vinyl fence manufacturer uses and more than would be found in a premium vinyl siding.
There should be no reason to paint your Bufftech Fence product. If you decide to paint it you need to consult your local paint supplier for a two-part epoxy-based product, which would have to be repainted in time. Any painting of your Bufftech Fence product voids the Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The fencing system carries a manufacturers limited lifetime written warranty stating the fence to be free of defects in material or workmanship that results in warping, rotting, corroding, flaking, peeling, blistering, or abnormal discoloration of surfaces. Bufftech also includes a SurStart warranty for 5 years that covers the labor associated with installing the fence. See warranty card for details.
Because of high quality mix that makes the Bufftech Fence product, a very light chalking can occur, which is a normal occurrence of any pigmented surface. Washed away by rain or normal weather changes this process basically self-cleans the product and keeps the surface looking like new.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) possesses excellent fire performance properties and in particular will not burn once the source of heat or flame is removed. As measured by a standard test (ASTM D 1929) with a flash ignition temperature of 391 degrees Celsius, PVC is among the least easily ignitable polymers.
Bufftech’s products have been engineered to accommodate normal temperature swings and climate condition changes. It is normal to expand and contract during temperature changes. As with plastic, it becomes less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact (sharp objects) it will not break.
Our Vinyl Deck components include trim options such as T-Trim, L-Trim, C-Channel, plank end caps, rim joist covers, column cladding and numerous vinyl railing systems. All mounting accessories are available to complete any project. Illustrated installation guides and phone support is also available. If you have any additional questions please contact us at your convenience.
Our Decking’s maximum span is 24 inches (however 16″ is recommended). Joist spans should be 16 inches on center for residential applications. On long deck surfaces where plank ends are butted, double joists should be used. Complete engineering specifications are available.
A dead-blow hammer should be used to set Brock Deck planks into the Clip-Strip or Snap Lock attachments. All of our Decking products can be straight or angle-cut and routed just like wood. When using a power saw, carbide blades are recommended, and don’t forget your safety goggles.
Both our Vinyl Deck kits offer a system using ordinary treated lumber (or any other suitable framing material) as a frame structure. Planks are held securely to the deck’s under structure in a patented process using aluminum Clip-Strips, snap locks or “Z”strip attachments. Stainless steel screws are used to secure the attachments to wood, steel, or aluminum stringers. Brock Deck planks snap into the attachments leaving no exposed fasteners, while Sheerline decking utilizes interlocking flanges and also has no exposed fasteners.
Brock Deck and Deck Lok planks are 1 1/2″ x 5 7/8″ and are available in , 12′ (special order), 16′, 20′ and 24′ lengths. Sheerline planks are available in 12′, 16′ and 20′ lengths and it comes in 1.625″ x 11.75″.
Brock Deck and Deck Lok are sold in full bundles of 56 pieces. There are no minimum purchase requirements for Sheerline Decking.
Backed by over 45 years of manufacturing excellence, Brock Deck has a lifetime residential warranty and a twenty-year commerical warranty. The deck railing has a lifetime warranty (non-prorated) against warping, rotting, corroding, flaking, peeling, blistering or discoloration. Sheerline decking and railing is manufactured by L.B. Plastics and both have a lifetime warranty. As accelerated age testing is ongoing, the life expectancy for our decking is estimated to be at least 35 to 40 years. However, it should outlast us all!
Vinyl Decking is a maintenance-free material that is durable, defies weathering, and never needs sealing, or painting. The nonporous surface cleans easily and resists stains. It stays cooler than composites, plastics, wood, or concrete deck and patio products in the summer sun and is weather resistant all year long. Vinyl decking is an ideal solution for the enhancement of residential, commercial and marine properties.
