If you are planning on adding a privacy fence for your property, you’ll likely want the highest standard of function, appearance, and durability. At Slat Depot located in Utah, we are pleased to offer Ridged Slats®, Tube Slats®, and our patent-pending SoliTube Slat™ inserts for chain-link fences to provide privacy, an attractive appearance, and long-lasting protection.

Ridged Slats® – these single-walled, bottom locking slats are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), color pigments, and ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors that not only retard the harmful effects of the sun and lengthen the life of the product, and they are available in a variety of colors.

Tube Slats® – these come with 3 Viper Channel™ pieces, a limited 30-year prorated warranty, and double-wall, bottom-locking tube slats.

SoliTube Slat™ – our premier option for chain link enhancement comes with 3 Viper Channel™ pieces and a limited 30-Year prorated warranty. These slats are double-walled with privacy fins on each side, and you can choose from a variety of standard colors. The body of this slat is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), color pigments, and ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors that hold off the harmful effects of the sun to maximize their performance. The privacy fins are made with a soft, flexible rubberlike material that is most often used in the automotive industry. The material (TPE) has color pigments and ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors to make them stand up to the sun’s harsh effects as well as being weather resistant.

Photodegradation is the process where the properties of a material can degrade from photon exposure. This is a concern when you are dealing with polymers and other materials that can be oxidized from ultraviolet light exposure. When the polymers oxidize they become brittle. You want to avoid photodegradation for polymers in outdoor applications, like fencing.

Unlike some plastic slats and tubes used in fencing, ours are specifically made to resist fading in the sun. Ours are made from high-density polyethylene color pigments and ultraviolet inhibitors formulated to resist the harmful effects of photodegradation and extend the lifespan of your fence.

If you want to find out more about the benefits of chain link privacy fence and see how our unique slats and tubes can save you long-term replacement costs, we invite you to reach out to our friendly staff at 1-877-FENCE-IT to set up a consultation. We look forward to working with you and giving you the quality fencing you expect and deserve.
