All Aegis Style fences have a recommended height of 5'. Why?
Because although 4' tall is the minimum guideline recommended by the Consumer Products Safety Commission for pools and child play areas, several municipalities have chosen to require 5' tall fencing as a minimum to make it more difficult for small children to climb.
Many people demand the strength of a second top rail or prefer the look of pickets extending above the top rail or desire rings or scrolls along the top of their fence. Since all the safety codes require a 45" clearance between top and bottom rails, the 5' height complies, while the 4' height does not.
Aesthetically, a 5' tall fence exhibits the best balance for complementing landscaping without obstructing visibility. Shrubbery beds or hedges are typically trimmed at about 3-1/2' to 4' above ground. The 5' tall fence extends just enough above that to expose the ornamental fence top without blocking or screening that may occur with a taller fence.
