The fencing material of the future – Enviroslat

You can build them, tear them down, mend them or sit on them. But one thing you don’t have to do any more is paint them.

Composite timber is rapidly becoming the fencing material of choice for people who like the look of timber but don’t want the maintenance that goes with it.

Futurewood’s EnviroSlat was developed in response to the increasing need for a more sustainable fencing material that takes the pressure off our precious forests, and is manufactured from recycled polyolefin (plastic from post industrial waste), rice husks and recycled hardwood.

EnviroSlat has low water absorption so it won’t rot. There are no knot holes or splinters and sap runs and tannin leaching are a thing of the past. Resistance to termites and white ants is another benefit of this most practical of fencing materials.

An attractive range of colours includes Chocolate, Mahogany, Weatherstone, Slate Grey and Walnut.

EnviroSlat is designed to span 900mm in a continuous run between fence posts, or 600mm span in a single run, for a low maintenance horizontal or vertical slat screen or fence. Boards are 70mm wide x 15mm thick and come in 5.4 metre lengths.

Satin black powder coated aluminium fence posts and a “U” channel complete the EnviroSlat range and provide the ideal framework for a horizontal EnviroSlat fence. 50mm x 50mm or 65mm x 65mm posts each have a 2.5mm wall thickness for extra strength and come complete with a stabilising bar and knock on black cap. The 30mm x 16mm satin black powder coated “U” channel screws to the fence posts so the boards can be fixed inside the channel and screwed from the back.

EnviroSlat provides the perfect option for contemporary fencing, private courtyards and cosy outdoor living areas, without the initial preparation or ongoing maintenance involved with traditional timber fencing.
