    The place i rent in red deer has a vinyl fence and no way it would hold up to a hockey puck from any peewee age or above kid. I presume a plastic deck would be really slippery but don't they all have some kind of lining material thing that goes overtop? That part isn't slippery.
    But the big difference between a right winger writing for a right wing media source, and left winger writing for a left wing source.

    Yeah, I have no idea. Just seems easier to replace an individual board if one came off the fence versus replacing the whole plastic panel. Same with the vinyl decking, can you shovel snow off of it or will it damage it?

    If it's the same stuff i'm thinking of then you can definitely shovel.

    Yes. It's invincible.



    The fence would not be panels, right? It's just plastic boards instead of wooden ones. It's not like they're 4x8 sheets of plastic hanging between two posts.
    *At least, not what I was picturing.

    The ones I seen were either 4' or 6' panels by however tall a fence normally is. I seen one piece (board) was broken so they had to replace the whole sheet.

    Is there another kind that is just individual boards with precut holes to bolt it together?

    yeah i thought it was panels also. space your posts and slid the whole panel on. needs to be repleaced as a panel. and a puck would destroy a vinyl fence in the winter with every shot.

    DaFuq?!??
    I'm picturing a "panel" in that it's a bunch of boards mounted between posts, but I figured a broken board within that panel could "easily" be swapped out if broken.
    Either way... It ain't holding up to pucks in winter.

    Why would you be firing pucks at frozen plastic fence boards in the winter in the first place?

    Isn't that what garage or basement walls are for?

    Or... heaven forbid... Going to an actual ice rink?

    My dad put a backyard rick in a few times for us as kids and although we tried our best to keep the puck on net, nobody is perfect. We had a wood fence that took a few clappers but held up just fine.

    Now that i think about it - that backyard rink was sick.
