Quality Construction and Materials

Aside from your manufacturer warranty and workmanship guarantee, there are many other reasons why Colorbond® fencing has a long lifespan.

The secret lies in the quality of the materials and construction itself, all of which are designed to make the fence strong, resistant to the harsh elements – including termites, fire, and wind (it has a wind gust loading of 216km/h – and easy to care for.

Firstly, Colorbond® fencing is made up of several layers. These include a structural steel core base which is made to meet Australian Standard 1397, producing a high quality grade and finish to your steel. The steel base is also coated with Activate™ technology, BlueScope steel’s industry-leading metallic coating for enhanced anti-corrosion.

Then, a thin pre-treatment layer is applied to enhance the adhesion of further coatings, followed by a polyester primer baked on to the surface.

Lastly, a topcoat of specially developed exterior grade lead-free paint (compliant with Australian Standard AS 2728) is baked on for enhanced resistance to chipping, peeling and cracking, which helps the finish retain its good looks for longer.

Together, these vital elements help give Colorbond® fencing the strength, durability, and resilience it needs to last in the unique Australian climate. And the benefit for you is? You can spend less time on exhaustive maintenance, and more time enjoying life’s simple pleasures.
