Assembly Instructions

Step 1 - Mounting the Rails

Your first objective when installing the VertiSlat system should be figuring out how you will mount the Open Rails, whether you are using posts, brick piers or a standard wall, an Open Rail will be needed. The Rail Brackets can be installed using Standard Green Plugs when installing into Brick, or our Self-Tapping Hex Heads can be used when installing into our Posts.
When cutting your Open Rail, we recommend clipping in the Open Rail Cover and cutting them at the same time.

Step 2 - Installing the Slats

Assuming your have already cut your slats to the desired length, and installed your chosen end caps for the slats, you can begin installing. Using a level and clamp, position your first slat in place and then screw through the back of the Open Rail into the slat using our Self-Tapping Hex Heads.
Once you have installed your first slat, using our Universal Spacer you can position and clamp the second slat in place. Repeat this process until you have installed all your slats.

Step 3 - The Finishing Touches

Once all your Slats have been installed, it’s time for the finishing touches. This is as simple as clipping in the Open Rail Cover to each rail, you may need to trim it a little bit to fit it between the brackets. If you used our Posts, you might also need to add on our Post End Caps to finish the look. Congratulations, you’ve just installed your first fence panel!
