Privacy Block Fencing is made from a high density 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. It is termite resistant, fire retardant and won’t crack or cause efflorescence.
Our product meets Building Designers/Certifiers/Developers/Builders and Architects, design criteria with a 6 Star energy compliance now the construction industry benchmark.
Privacy Block Fencing is strong, using locally manufactured products & materials. Unlike the risks associated with concrete walls, Privacy Block Fences won’t crack even in the most reactive soils or develop efflorescence, a crystalline deposit of salt that is often seen on the surfaces of concrete. In the event of major impact caused by severe weather or a vehicle, the risk of injury is reduced due to there being no blocks to be knocked loose or go flying through the air.
Privacy Block Fencing also contains a flame retardant additive. In technical terms it will not ‘support fire’ and has a ‘spread of flame index’ of zero. In the event of a fire the toxic fumes are no greater than that of timber and other building materials. Our products have been tested to BAL29 (AS1530.8.1-2007).
In addition this product contains a termite retardant (Bifenthrin) and uses 62% more than the minimum required.
PBF walls have acoustic properties that provide a sound barrier dramatically reducing noise pollution.
Whether you have a noisy neighbour, a dog that’s constantly barking or live on a busy road, we can help. Our walls are constructed 200 mm thick and are seamless when finished, reducing cavities for noise to get through providing you with a private, peaceful relaxing environment to enjoy with your family and friends.
Note: Acoustic laboratory testing has been done with the standard 60mm panel system and it achieved RW35 (Ref:GC/06/5809.tst) which meets the requirements for houses on main roads but our fences are 200mm thick, more then double the thickness tested so you can expect far superior results.
