Innovative Product Design
Aluminum Gate Post Stiffeners - We were the first to use aluminum stiffeners in our gate posts to strenghten the product and keep it performing well and looking good for years. This idea has been copied by some of our competitors.
Aluminum Gate Reinforcement - Our gate frames are 100% reinforced with aluminum and are pre-assembled producing the best gate in the industry.
Aluminum Post Mounts with Adjustable Leveling Bolts - Our railing systems are securely attached to wooden or concrete structures with our aluminum post mounts. By using 3/8" stainless steel leveling bolts, each post can be adjusted for the perfect fit.
Hurricane Mount for the 5" "A" Series Support Post and 5" Square Support Post - Our Hurricane Mount has been tested for high wind loads and is crafted of rugged anodized aluminum for years of lasting strength.
Hidden Picket Attachment - Our patented (#5601278) picket attachment for vinyl fence means there are no unsightly screws or plugs to mar the good looks of your PolyVinyl Fence.
Rackable Privacy Panels - Our Snap Lock Tongue & Groove privacy fencing has an option that can rack up to 12 inches in an 8-foot section. This creates a beautiful look as the fencing flows along your landscape and compliments your home.
Hidden Rail Lock (patent US 7,134,647 B2) and Hidden Picket Fasteners (patent US 7,152,849 B2) - Our CourtYard® Aluminum Fence incorporates our hidden rail lock and hidden picket fastener eliminating the need for screws.

DIGGER FENCER QUOTING PROGRAM
We offer exclusively to our Fence Dealers our Digger Fencer quoting and estimating program. This program has been customized with our Polyvinyl Fence and CourtYard® Aluminum Fence products.
The quality of the product we deliver to the market place is of great importance to Digger Specialties to the point that we have included our commitment to delivering only the "highest quality products" to our customers in our mission statement. We have a multiple level Quality Assurance Program. Through inspection and testing, we are constantly checking and monitoring our products for consistency in quality and reliability. We have two sophisticated machines for controlling the quality of the products we will accept from our vendors and the quality of product we deliver to our customers.

We have a Spectrometer for measuring color content and brightness. The variances this machine measures are held within tight tolerances. The PVC is monitored hourly during extrusion by our vendor to ensure the material meets these standards. Our Quality Assurance personnel check the PVC extrusions once we receive it here at Digger Specialties. Any material that fails to meet our standards is rejected. We work closely with our vendors to help improve their production processes resulting in higher quality material and fewer rejected shipments.
The same attention is given to testing our product for its ability to endure in the field. We have an Accelerated Weathering Tester that simulates outdoor conditions so we may test how our products stand up over the years. This Accelerated Weathering Machine simulates the damaging conditions of exterior weathering on plastic, aluminum, and similar materials by constantly cycling the sample product between UV-radiation (from UV lamps) and moisture at higher temperatures. After a pre-set exposure time in the weathering machine, equivalent to a corresponding outdoor exposure time, the sample is removed and inspected. We test various products at different time intervals to meet all expected requirements, depending on the application. This is done to ensure our products will "stand up to the test of time" and we know our customers have a product that will last.
In addition to our internal Quality Assurance Program and our partnering efforts with our vendors, some of our products are submitted to external testing agencies for unbiased evaluation against industry-recognized standards.
