What is the fence made out of?

The fencing is a dense expanded polystyrene insulation board fixed to a framing system finished with a polymer cement render reinforced with an alkali resistant fibreglass mesh.  This system provides a weather resistant seam free rendered finished in a wide range of textures and colours.

What is CodeMark?

CodeMark™ is a new building product certification scheme. Third-party CodeMark™ Certification bodies evaluate and certify products to ensure they meet specified requirements of the Building Code.

 

CodeMark™ gives users the confidence that their building complies. Building materials, forms of construction and designs can come under the scheme.

 

Relevant legislation requires Building Certifiers, Designer, Architects, Builders, Home Insurance companies, Customers etc. to accept CodeMark™ certified products*.

Do I need council approval to build a fence?

Different zones have different requirements. It’s best to check with your local council prior to construction to ascertain if approval or building permits are required. For more information go to:

Does the fence reduce noise and by how much?

Our range of composite, post and panel fences have proven acoustic properties suitable for a wide range of applications. The Building Systems tested were only 60mm thick and yet the acoustic performance result rated Rw35, Ctr-6. Whilst this provides a sound barrier 1.5 times greater then a traditional block wall it’s important to remember that the panels tested are less then half the width of the panels we use when installing front fences (200mm) so you can expect even better results.
