It’s all about how it’s made

colorbond the fence

Fifty years of Australian research and development has created a range of technologies that give COLORBOND® steel its long lasting performance when subjected to some of the harshest conditions.

Fence panels made from COLORBOND® steel provide five layers of protection starting with the steel base, which is manufactured to meet all the relevant Australian Standards, ensuring strict adherence to the required grade and strength.

The base is then coated in BlueScope’s industry leading metallic coating incorporating Activate® technology, to provide enhanced corrosion resistance.

A thin pretreatment layer is then applied to optimise the adhesion of further coatings, and a corrosion inhibitive primer is baked onto the surface.

Finally there’s a topcoat of specially developed, exterior grade paint that’s baked on to provide resistance to chipping, flaking and blistering to ensure the finish retains its look for longer.

So, you can be sure that a fence panel made from COLORBOND® steel can enhance the look, privacy and security of your home for years to come.
