Abstract:
A plastic fence assembly (80) and method for installation between a pair of spaced apart vertically oriented posts (22, 24). The fence assembly (80) is made up of upper and lower plastic rails (26, 28) having a U-shaped channel (36), a large plastic fence panel (30), and a pair of fence post connectors (82, 84) which the connectors (82, 84) are removably attachable to the posts (22, 24) and configured to support ends of the upper and the lower rails (26, 28) and an upward vertical edge of the fence panel (30). The upper and lower rails (26, 28), the fence panel (30), and the fence post connectors (82, 84) are sub-assembled in a horizontal manner. The lower end (82, 84) of the connectors (82, 84) is positioned pivotally connected to the fence posts (22, 24) and the subassembly is raised and affixed to the fence post (22, 24). The post connectors (82, 84) retain the upper and the lower rails (26, 28) and the outboard edges of the fence panel (30) securely in place.
