Is there a gray brace arm for fences?

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop and today I will answer one of the most frequently asked questions we receive: is there an L-shaped brace arm for fences in a color other than green? The answer is yes, and that’s exactly what I will show you in this video.

We present to you the Anthracite L Brace Arm, characterized by its Anthracite gray color. This product retains all the technical features of the green L brace arm but with an aesthetic that better suits those looking for an alternative to the classic green. Here are some of its technical specifications:

  • Available in three heights: 1.20 meters, 1.50 meters, and 2 meters.
  • L-section 25x25x3 mm.
Why choose the Anthracite L Brace Arm?

The Anthracite L Brace Arm mainly differs in color. In recent years, manufacturers have started offering mesh, posts, brace arms, and ties in this elegant Anthracite gray color, catering to the growing demand for more modern aesthetic options for residential fences.

As for installation, there are no differences compared to the green version. The degree of installation difficulty is 2 on a scale of 1 to 5, so very easy. The brace arm is fixed to the fence post using a bolt, whether you are working on concrete or soil.

How many brace arms do you need?

The rule is simple:

  • One brace arm for each starting post.
  • Two brace arms for each corner post, positioned in opposite directions.
  • One brace arm for each fence interruption, such as a gate.
  • One brace arm for each step if the fence is installed on a stepped wall.

Imagine you have a corner in your fence: you will need a brace arm in one direction and another in the opposite direction to ensure stability. If you have a gate in the middle of the fence, you will need two brace arms, one for each side of the gate. Each step of the fence will require a brace arm to keep the wires taut.


We at Fenceshop hope that this information has been helpful in understanding the available options for your fences. The Anthracite L Brace Arm is an excellent choice for those looking for an aesthetic alternative to the usual green.
