SPECRAIL, a division of Porcelen LTD. CT, LLC, manufactures the most comprehensive choice of aluminum ornamental picket fencing systems to suit the discriminating needs of today's design professionals. With 48 years of experience in manufacturing and finishing aluminum construction products, SPECRAIL has enjoyed a leadership role within the industry that has been earned through providing the most styles and grades, while offering function, quality, and durability of the highest standard.
Our 180,000 square foot plant located in Hamden, Connecticut includes complete state-of-the-art fabrication and painting facilities. Porcelen has been a leader in custom finishing since 1957 and we offer the versatility of our Polycolor paint finish on our SPECRAIL fences. We know that every fence or gate we manufacture represents who we are, and so our commitment is not only to our customer's needs, but also to our dedication to quality.
Our ornamental fence division was founded on the premise of quality products delivered with excellent service. We offer four grades of fencing, in nine standard styles. Residential (SR series), residential wide (SW series), commercial (SC series), and industrial (SI series) grade fences are all constructed of high-strength aluminum alloy and fastened with Type 302 stainless steel Tek screws. All panels are fully assembled. Pickets are screwed to rails with stainless steel fasteners. Posts are pre-punched to accept rails. Rails are connected to posts with stainless steel Tek screws. Sections will easily rake to allow for change in ground level. Fieldwork is reduced to a minimum.
