Horizontal Shadow Box

Horizontal Shadow Box

Horizontal Shadow Box style is made by arranging the slats/pickets on both sides of the stringers. Each side has the pickets arranged with an open space between the pickets. This space allows air to flow through.  With the slat/pickets on both sides, it essentially creates a series of boxes that make for a very sturdy fence. 

on Regular Space Shadow Box fence the first layer of slat/pickets are fastened to the stringer spaced approx. 2/3 the width of the slat/picket being used. The Fence Panel is then turned over where the spaces created on the first side are covered by placing slat/pickets over the open spaces and fastened into the stringer material completing the semi privacy panel.

Horizontal Shadow Box fence can be built to any height and is offered in lattice top. it can be assembled with the post showing (toe nailed) or covering the post on one side.

The most common facing materials are 1/2"x4", 5/8"x4",and 5/8"x 5.5" slat/picket fence boards. The stringer/frame

material is either  1 5/8" X 1 5/8" or "Dressed" 2"x4".
