Colorbond Fencing

For those wanting a fence that will stand up against the test of time and withstand the elements, look no further than Colorbond fencing. With a reputation within the industry as the most sturdy fencing solution, Colorbond lets you enjoy privacy and peace of mind knowing that your new fence was a sound investment. Given its inherent strength, Colorbond also makes a great choice for security fences as any attempts to scale it will likely not result in damage.

What Makes Colorbond Fencing So Tough?

In order to identify why Colorbond is so strong we need to start from the inside out. Colorbond steel is manufactured according to Australian Standards (AS1397 and AS/NZS 2728) with quality control ensuring it has the right grade and strength. The steel is corrugated because this makes it stronger than a flat sheet of metal. This means your Colorbond fence has a strong core that has been strengthened without adding any weight.

The base then gets coated in something called metallic coating which provides much needed protection against corrosion. This is essential for people living on the coast where the salty air can wreak havoc on untreated metals. Another pretreatment layer is added before a corrosion inhibitive primer is placed on top and then baked onto the surface. Lastly, a topcoat of paint is baked on, making the final product look great while also being resistant to chipping and flaking.

Tested To Last In Aussie Weather

Living in South-East Queensland means you are no stranger to the wild weather we can experience each year. Colorbond fencing is perfect for our region not only due to the fact it looks great but also because it’s tested to make sure it can handle whatever is thrown at it. Colorbond steel is used not only for fences but throughout the building industry which means it needs to be tested thoroughly in a wide variety of conditions.

In order to ensure a quality product, Colorbond steel is tested to measure its durability, resistance to corrosion and outdoor exposure. As part of this testing, over 12,000 panels of Colorbond are placed throughout Australia in locations ranging from tropical to industrial. This lets them measure the impact of exposure from a variety of different conditions, far exceeding Australian testing standards for steel building products.

Another interesting fact about Colorbond is its ability to offer protection during bushfires. An investigation conducted by the CSIRO into the performance of residential boundary fencing in bushfires found that Colorbond “performed the best under all exposure conditions and in particular when faced with a 30 minute flame immersion test”. Colorbond steel can be used in bushfire prone areas, including the most hazardous, BAL-FZ, as part of a complaint system.

Colorbond Fencing Colours

Given that the colour is baked into the fence it’s important to provide a wide range of options designed to suit any home’s existing look and feel. Colorbond has a wide range of colours, all of which are inspired by the natural landscape of Australia. We love this approach, not only because it means we get a massive palette to choose from, but also because there is a sense of pride knowing your new fence is inspired by our beautiful country. We have covered the colours available when using Colorbond steel before, so click here to view the full palette.

Colorbond Fencing Is Easy To Maintain

Maintenance can be an important factor to take into consideration when looking for a new fence. While some are happy to spend time in their backyard, for others it means less time doing what they actually want to do. For the most part, a Colorbond fence will only require the occasional hosedown with clean, fresh water to keep it looking great. Regular rain will more than likely render this unnecessary however. If used to frame gardens, you want to make sure that no soil or mulch is pushed up against the fencing.
