Aluminium Slat Fencing Vs Colorbond Fencing – Which is Better for Your Property?

Aluminium Slat Fencing Vs Colorbond Fencing – Which is Better for Your Property?

Whether building, developing, or updating the aesthetics or security of a property, choosing a fence type is sometimes an after-thought and it is often restricted to what the leftover budget allows. However, the right fence can make a huge impact to the look and safety of your home or building project. With budget, aesthetics, and longevity in mind, it is not surprising that two of the most common fences for modern homes are aluminium slat fencing or Colorbond steel fences. Both of these products offer a great solution that won’t succumb to the harsh Australian heat, won’t rot in humid conditions, and won’t submit to termite damage. At UFENCEIT, we supply wide range of contemporary fencing solutions, here’s why we believe you should choose our slat fencing over Colorbond steel alternatives. 

It Won’t Rust

Unlike some traditional fencing materials, aluminium is naturally resistant to rust and corrosion. This characteristic makes aluminium slat fencing an ideal choice for areas with high humidity, coastal regions, or places where exposure to the elements is a concern. Coastal air is salty, and this salt will inevitably cause iron and steel fences to succumb to corrosion and rust.

It Looks Great

Aluminium slat fencing is renowned for its sleek and modern design. The clean lines and minimalistic aesthetic contribute to a contemporary look that effortlessly complements various architectural styles, from ultra-modern to classic. Unlike Colorbond fencing, where design is limited by its corrugated steel slab nature, slats are available in a variety of colours, sizes, and slat orientations, offering a wide range of versatile design options. This provides homeowners, designers, and builders, with the flexibility to customise the fence enhance the overall curb appeal of the property.

It Offers Visibility and Airflow

Unlike Colorbond steel fencing, which is constructed in large steel sheets, slat fencing gives you the option to be creative with the space between the slats. Whether you want maximum privacy or a more open and airy feel, slat fencing gives you the flexibility to create privacy whilst still allowing air to flow through.

As the need for functional and aesthetically pleasing fencing solutions continues to evolve, the choice between slat fencing and steel Colorbond fencing becomes a pivotal decision for property owners. Both options offer distinct advantages, but in the pursuit of a perfect blend of style and versatility, slat fencing emerges as a compelling choice.
