Bend the Rules with New CertainTeed® Bufftech® Curved Rails and Decorative Gates


CertainTeed expands popular vinyl fence line with new curved rail and gate options and broader color palette

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed is debuting four new curved rail options and two new curved gates for its popular line of Bufftech® vinyl fence. The new designs, available for the Chesterfield privacy fence style with CertaGrain® texture, capture the growing trend of privacy fences crafted with decorative accents. The company is also adding in-demand colors to a variety of Bufftech fence styles.

“It is our goal to ensure that we offer the most comprehensive and market-responsive product line possible, an effort we regularly examine. These new curved rail and gate options are a direct response to the voice of customers, and truly the flowing designs create beautiful looks for our enduring fences,” said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed Outdoor Living. “The new curved options, as well as expanded color selection, provide exciting design possibilities for outdoor living spaces.”

Designed for long-lasting beauty, Bufftech fence with CertaGrain replicates the look and feel of true wood craftsmanship yet offers the easy maintenance that can come only with vinyl. Plus, each new curved rail includes an aluminum top rail insert for added strength.

The Chesterfield privacy fence with CertaGrain texture is available as a Concave section that reaches 6 feet high at the post and 5 feet 6 inches at the center, as well as a Convex section that is 6 feet high at the post and 6 feet 6 inches at the center. The fence can also be specified with an S curve or Swoop rail, each of which transitions from 6 feet to 4 feet. In addition, the new curved rails come in four popular colors that include Arctic Blend, Brazilian Blend, Sierra Blend and Weathered Blend.

Also new is the curved gate with the in-demand Victorian accent for Chesterfield with CertaGrain texture. The gate is available in both concave and convex accents. Each measures 50 ½ inches and ships fully assembled. These new textured accent gates are available in Arctic Blend, Brazilian Blend, Sierra Blend and Weathered Blend colors.

In addition, CertainTeed is pleased to expand the Bufftech vinyl fence color palette.
