CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) -  ActiveYards® is committed to providing smart solutions and innovative technologies. That's why they have become the leading American manufacturer of low maintenance, lifetime warranted fencing systems. With ActiveYards' unique patented technology like GlideLock™, strength and security are all in the design.

Why GlideLock?
Traditional vinyl privacy fences use a basic tongue and groove design which unfortunately is prone to disconnect, thus separate from the fence under high winds. ActiveYards' patent-pending GlideLock design ensures that each fence picket locks tightly into place without any gaps. This unique design offers added seclusion and privacy for any homeowners' yard. GlideLock technology helps the fence withstand wind and other natural elements that could potentially damage it. Additionally, the feedback from the field is that it is easier to install than traditional pickets.

"GlideLock's locking system has become our greatest differentiator and competitive advantage in the marketplace," says Peter Fickinger, General Manager of ActiveYards. 

Unlike traditional pickets that can bend or buckle when the wind blows, GlideLock pickets lock firmly together for a tighter gap-free fit. Because GlideLock pickets snap together so easily, ActiveYards fences have become a popular solution for the DIYer. ActiveYards' EZFence2Go program has been designed to make the installation process as simple and hassle-free as possible on anyone.

From its manufacturing plants to components and materials, all of ActiveYards' fencing systems are produced in the United States. By using the finest materials and backing all products with a transferable Limited Lifetime Warranty, homeowners can be rest assured knowing that ActiveYards stands behind every product they sell. With their leading designs like GlideLock technology, ActiveYards is committed to manufacturing fences that will remain durable, functional and beautiful for years to come.
