In addition to the Fiberon composite decking which was used on the porch floor of the Kuppersmith Project house, we also installed Fiberon fencing in the yard and Fiberon Horizon Plus composite railings on the back porch.
To provide access to the backyard, composite fencing was attached to a steel frame for the gate. On the back porch, the durable, low-maintenance railings were positioned near the outer edge of the porch columns so the retractable Phantom Screens behind them would have room to raise and lower.

I think Fiberon is a great material for composite fencing and decks. Another one that I can suggest is TREX which I got from https://www.trexfencingfds.com/ and it’s really tough too. I had mine put up a year ago and it still looks fresh!
