Can Your Fence Handle the Heat?

With summertime temperatures in Perth creeping past 40 degrees Celsius this summer, it’s important to ensure your building materials, including fences, are designed for use in the extreme temperatures.

Colorbond steel fences are some of the most durable available. They come with a 10 year warranty from the manufacturer, and are resistant to corrosion, in addition to being completely fireproof. In fact, a Colorbond fence can actually help protect your property in the event of a bushfire.

Of course, chain mesh and wire fences are also incredibly resilient even in the most extreme temperatures. Although fireproof, they will not be able to help prevent bushfire from travelling onto  your property because it is not a solid surface. Mesh and wire are preferred for many types of installations for many reasons, however, including improved visibility as well as economical reasons.

Hardifence is non-flammable as well, making it a good choice for areas at-risk for fire. It comes with a 10 year warranty and is resistant to mold, moisture and rot.
