With the introduction of new technologies, new panel systems have now been designed for New Zealand conditions and provide a flexible alternative to conventional fencing and screening. Innovative panel systems can be used for both residential and commercial applications and include privacy screens, courtyard surrounds, pool and spa fencing, as well as boundary fencing with a gate option.
Homeowners now have the design freedom to create a custom look to complement their home and outdoor living areas by using panels of various textures and contemporary colours, Alternatively, homeowners can choose designs reflecting elements of New Zealand’s culture and landscape.
Many new panel systems have a non-reflective surface and a smooth finish for easy maintenance and slot easily into an anodized aluminium frame, post and cap system for a modern and stylish finish.
A large majority of contemporary panel systems are manufactured using a thermoplastic foam, Gurit G-PET™, a highly adaptable, recyclable thermoplastic core material with a good balance of mechanical properties, temperature resistance and density, plus a combination of fibre glass and gel coat.
The result is a durable panel that will not warp or corrode and is structurally sound and capable of withstanding varying climates such as hail storms, high winds and high heat.
With no requirement for painting and easy to clean with water only, contemporary panel systems offer a very low maintenance fencing and screening option.
