Stunning Custom Cedar Fence in Sandy Springs

Allied Fence collaborated with one of Atlanta’s most renowned landscape architecture firms to design, fabricate and install a fabulous custom cedar fence. The 400+ feet of highly-visible front yard fence is on an immense, sloping, corner lot in Sandy Springs. The terrain posed challenges that were overcome with close coordination between the client, architect, project manager Larry Winkelvoss and superintendent Ken Eavenson. The ravishing, one-of-a-kind fence defines the gorgeous property, while keeping pets enclosed and deters most wildlife.

 

CSX Transportation has a major presence on the west side of Atlanta and Allied Fence has built several thousand feet of fence at their facilities over the past 15 years.

A refurbished caboose is the first thing students and visitors see when arriving at their Railroad Education & Development Center.  Allied Fence Co, working to a very rigid schedule, finished this beautiful “cross-buck” style wood fence on time and ready for their opening ceremony in the fall of 2022.

 

Allied Fence to the Rescue!!

Allied Fence personnel helped to free a very scared fawn who became entangled in an ornamental fence. Thankfully he was not harmed and was able to return to the woods.

 

 

Centennial Olympic Park Project

For the 1996 Olympics, Allied Fence was selected to participate in several projects throughout Atlanta to prepare for the Olympic games and festivities. Our work included fencing for the Olympic Stadium (that became Turner Field), City of Atlanta Water Howell Mill reservoirs, NBC, Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games and Centennial Olympic Park.

After the Olympics, Allied Fence helped to design, fabricate and install over 4,000 feet of industrial ornamental aluminum fence around Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta. The fence still stands today, looking almost as good as it did 25 years ago. In June 2022, as part of an extensive remodel project, park officials chose Allied Fence to add a large addition to the perimeter fence near the ferris wheel known as Skyview Atlanta and along Marietta Street near the College Football Hall of Fame.

Customer of Allied Fence Since 1961

In 1961 as newlyweds, Anne and Willie Walker bought a quaint new house in northwest Atlanta, near Perry Homes. One of the first things they did was to install a 4′ galvanized chain link fence from Allied Fence Co. Over the years, they meticulously maintained their house and their yard. Several years ago, Anne was widowed, but she chose to stay in her house, along with her dog Sam. In May 2022 when Sam found a way to breach the fence, Allied Fence came to the rescue. Kenny Gillam made the needed repair to assure that Sam would stay inside the fence.
 
In 1961, Allied Fence offered a lifetime warranty on chain link fences to original purchasers, so Anne Walker was not charged to fix the problem that her dog Sam had caused. Anne was very happy to have chosen Allied Fence 61 years ago.
           
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Residential Gate Spotlight Projects

Allied Fence artisans have been busy building custom cedar estate gates for homes throughout Atlanta. Here is an assortment of some recent projects. All of these gates have electric operators and many have call boxes enabling gates to be opened from anywhere.

The Passing of Bill Osborne

Allied Fence sadly announces that former owner and general manager, Bill Osborne (87), passed away on January 30, 2022 after an extended and valiant fight against cancer. Bill grew up in the Paulding County area and graduated from Paulding County High School. Bill and his wife Judy had been long-time residents of the Powder Springs area, and they belonged to the First Baptist Church of Powder Springs.

Bill worked almost his whole life in fencing and was well-known in the industry. He was the owner of Allied Fence from 1969 until 1987, but he also worked several years before and for 22 years after he sold the company to Todd Edlin. Bill was known to announce that he was retiring on January 1 each year, but then end up going right back to work, which showcases his tireless work ethic.

When he wasn’t working, Bill had many hobbies, most of which revolved around the great outdoors. He enjoyed caring for his lawn and garden, and traveling across this beautiful nation. Bill loved spending time with his family, especially his five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend.

Hartsfield Jackson International Airport Deer Protection Fencing Project

Officials at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport asked Allied Fence to design and install a containment system to not only allow water and debris to flow smoothly from the Flint River on airport property, but help keep deer off of the five runways. Waiting until there was a dry spell, the Flint River water depth dropped to knee deep, allowing the crew and equipment easier access to the site. Under the leadership of Kenny Gillam, with help from Kevin, Rob, Scott, Vidal and others, a series of custom panels were fabricated and installed that fulfill the goal.

Buckhead Iron Gates With Operators

Allied Fence installed Byan 900 gate operators and accessories at one of Atlanta’s largest estates. Located on 16 acres in Buckhead, this 20,000 square foot house has two pairs of custom iron gates that can be controlled via a mobile app from anywhere in the world.

 

Allied Fence – Securing the Vote

Due to alleged, but unfounded, improprieties during the November 2020 election, Fulton County turned to Allied Fence to help secure the vote counting for the January 5 runoff for two pivotal U.S. Senate seats. A six foot tall fence was installed in the Georgia World Congress Center during the run-up to the election as early votes were counted and stayed for several weeks after the tabulation was certified. Throughout election night, the fence was shown on many national TV networks including CNN, Fox and ABC.
