Coach JP Says:
Old Style Vs This New Style of Fence Cap
The typical corrugated roll of fence guard will still work but is borderline miserable to install & though cheap to buy, it becomes expensive when you add the shipping cost. Because it ships in huge rolls, it takes up a lot of space in a truck, even though it weighs little for its volume. This newer style nests when shipped with 5 8 ft sections taking up little more than 1 piece alone!
Traditionally, you see what is actually rolled, corrugated drainpipe being used to top youth baseball field outfield fences. For years, It was the only option. Our 8 ft section- style of fence topper is the newer, smarter way to complete your outfield or field side fencing.
This teardrop shape is a bit thicker than the few cheaper new style options in this shape so will last for many years without issue. It is taller, heavier & simply contains more raw material. One person simply puts a section in place, then squeezes the metal hog rings to the bottom side through the pre drilled holes, then moves on to the next section! This Top Rail Fence Cap should save you a bunch of money in the long run and is suitable for any ballfield.
Note on Color
Yellow looks great, is the most popular and has the highest visibility, but if you choose a team color, you will still retain the safety factor. It is worth noting that colors closer to the red family can fade over time.
