Slat Fencing for Melbourne
Joe's Fencing & Gates specialise in all forms of slat fencing. We install aluminum slat fencing and steel slat fencing, along with the more traditional timber slat fencing - in either horizontal or vertical slats with your desired spacing between the slats. Slat fencing gates, including automatic sliding gates can be built in the same style to match your new fence.
Slat fencing is also a popular choice for inlays for brick fences (especially for both aluminum slat fencing and timber slat fencing)
It is a modern and stylish form of fencing that comes with clean lines and a sharp finish. It is often used for privacy - including from neighbours on decks and patios in the backyard.
This style of fencing is also perfect for hiding carports and garages from view. It can also be used to hide utilities like rubbish bins, water tanks and air conditioners without preventing air circulation.
Slat fencing (including aluminum slat fencing and timber slat fencing) is especially popular for small areas - where privacy and security are required but light and air is still desired. However, slat fences are also now extensively used as boundary fences - especially for the front of a home. In addition, in recent years, slat fences have been used for commercial properties where a stylish solution is required for a security fencing requirement.
Aluminum Slat Fencing
Aluminum slat fencing has become an extremely popular type of fencing in the last few years. It is considered one of the most versatile types of fences available on the market today - especially since it is lightweight, tough, long lasting and only requires a low amount of maintenance.
It won't fade, warp, splinter, crack, or dry out in the sun. Other than the occasional hose down with water it does not require any cleaning. Compared to steel steel slat fencing, the main advantages of aluminum slat fencing is that it is much more lightweight and is less expensive.
If you like the long lasting qualities of an aluminum slat fence but still like the look of a timber slat fence this can be achieved with a aluminum slat fence as aluminum slat fences are powder coated - in a vast range of colours - so you can even get it in a timber look finish if desired. That way you can get the benefits of an aluminium slat fence but the appearance of a timber slat fence.
We can even match your new aluminum slat fence with an automatic sliding gate or hinged gate. If you have an existing aluminum slat fence we can also match a gate to it.
Timber Slat Fencing
At Joe's Fencing & Gates we use merbau timber for our timber slat fences due to its long lasting properties. Merbau timber also has attractive dark tones that will complement your home whilst retaining a natural warmth to the appearance.
Merbau fencing is also used as screening - especially around pools to add extra privacy. However, other types of timber can be used for your timber slat fence including jarrah, ironbark and pine.
We can even match your new timber slat fence with an automatic sliding gate or hinged gate. If you have an existing timber slat fence we an also match a gate to it.
Steel Slat Fencing
Steel slat fencing is becoming an increasingly popular choice for residential fencing. It is extremely popular choice for commercial fencing due to its extreme strength. It is heavy and very resistant to damage. However, it is more expensive than an aluminium slat fence and is not suitable if you have a coastal home due to the potential of corrosion in salty air.
We can even match your steel slat fence with an automatic sliding gate or hinged gate. If you have an exisiting timber slat fence we can also match a gate to it.
If security is your main concern when deciding on a new fence for your home then steel slat fencing maybe the option for you.
