Fence slats are flat tubular plastic extrusions which are inserted into any type of chain link fencing to add beauty and privacy to both sides of fence. Once installed, Fence slats are virtually maintenance free. Salt, sand and road dirt will not harm the slats in any way. Due to the UV inhibited thermo plastic design, Fence slats will not fade, chip or discolor for at least 15 years. Top locking slats have a special locking feature, Once the horizontal strip is in place, the slats cannot be removed easily from the fence.
