Barfield Fence and Fabrication- Our Vision



At Barfield Fence and Fabrication we pride ourselves on quality as well as innovation. Gates, fences and rail are everywhere, and because of this they become invisible.  You walk through gates and beside fences every day without noticing them.



Do you remember what the last gate you walked through looked like?

Pushing the Envelope


At Barfield Fence and Fabrication our goal is to make a unique and elegant product that you remember. A product that stands above the competition. Not just a boundary, but a piece of art.


That is what the name Barfield Fence means – custom, conceptual, unique. Our railing, fence and architectural aluminum are designed and built on premises. After being built in our fabrication area, all of our products are painted on site in our powder coating facility. This is just a part of our 25,000 square foot facility. We control every aspect of the job, from fabrication to installation. This is how we build our products to the very best standard.


“We stand behind our work!”
