New lineups deliver the increased aesthetics and strength that commercial and residential builders seek from perimeter security fencing.

GARLAND, Texas – February 25, 2020 – Fortress Building Products, a leading manufacturer of fencing, decking, railing and framing products, will introduce two new fencing solutions March 3-6 at FENCETECH® 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“ARES™ and Athens Commercial both deliver on Fortress’ commitment of being the ‘Total Solution.’ Both product lines offer needed solutions to key problems building professionals face in today’s fencing market,” said Toby Bostwick, VP of Product and Brand at Fortress Building Products. “Athens Commercial offers light-weight durability, unmatched panel adjustability, and aesthetic design that can fit into a variety of landscape designs and ARES delivers superior strength to protect high-security facilities combined with the efficiency of pre-assembled panels to put that protection in place quickly. We’re looking forward to showcasing both of these new products at FENCETECH 2020.”

ARES Fencing

ARES high-security steel fencing is engineered as a durable perimeter fence that is available as pre-assembled full panels to speed up installation and better protect a property. The panels can support up to and exceed the ASTM required 680 pounds of mid-span loads and include design features that improve forced-entry resistance and greater span strength such as solid steel I-beams and steel pales. Additionally, the pales pass through the rails offering greater strength. The combination of design and engineering makes ARES an ideal solution for fencing around secure areas that are visible to the public, such as public transportation stations, corporate campuses, electrical substations, government entities and parks.

In manufacturing, the steel is first e-coated then powder-coated in a variety of color finishes and lastly receives a secondary electroplated coating for enhanced UV protection. ARES is available now in four distinct finishes and three different stylings.

Athens Commercial Fencing

The new Athens Commercial aluminum fencing line offers larger rail and wider picket profiles to the existing Athens residential line. It utilizes a lightweight, tempered aluminum that is durable enough to perform as a commercial-grade boundary to protect any property. Fortress utilizes an innovative fastener to create a clean panel that fits together seamlessly and makes it a luxurious option for builders and property owners looking for a quality solution. Athens Commercial is Fortress’ strongest aluminum fence product and has been tested to ensure it meets all ASTM commercial aluminum fence standards.

Athens Commercial is available now in a variety of rust-free, powder-coated aluminum finishes. This finishing process means never having to worry about the look of the fence deteriorating over time, which makes it perfect for pools and/or coastal applications. Athens Commercial has superior rackability to enable it to meet any realistic amount of grade change.

Built for the commercial market that wants to bring a refined experience to their spaces, the Athens Commercial and ARES lines of fencing products are available now. Fortress Building Products will display these new lines at FENCETECH in booth #2223. For more information, please visit
