Privacy fence slats are clearly a valuable product to offer your customers. They not only provide a decorative element to both residential and commercial properties, but add function, durability, and privacy for an affordable price. 

But when adding the beautiful touch of fence slats to rugged chain link fences for your customers, how can you best help them narrow down their options to choose the product that will best suit their needs? Here are a few tips from the pro’s at PrivacyLink. 

Determine the size of the fence

Start by narrowing down your options based on the size of fence your customer has. There are specific fence slat options for either 2” mesh fences or 3 ½” x 5” mesh fences. 

Once you know the size of fence you have to work with, it can be much easier for both you and your customer. You’ll be able to come to the table with confidence and a list of products in mind that meet their needs and are available for their size fence. 

Identify the desired level of privacy

Fence slats provide different levels of visibility and privacy. Understanding how much your customer wants to be able to see in or out of the fence is a great starting point to establish as a baseline. 

Our privacy fence slats range from 75% to 98% privacy, so you’re sure to find a solution that perfectly delivers what your customer is looking for. 

Map out the function and style you’re trying to achieve

It’s important to walk through the vision your customer has for their finished fence. Some may want more neutral colors like white, dark green, or brown vinyl wooden fence slats. Others may be looking for bright colors and patterns, safety caps and reflective inserts, or even faux hedge slats to match the surrounding landscape. 

Laying out the main needs that need to be met and creating a style guide for your customer can help you eliminate options that aren’t what they’re looking for and narrow down which fence slats will be the perfect fit.
