Selecting the infills of a precast concrete fence is a decision that is not only about the aesthetics of the fence but also about the function and purpose. While you’re deciding on what infill to choose, think about the following:
1. Privacy – how much privacy you want from the street
2. Security – whether you need to increase the security of your home
3. Streetscape – is there a requirement to blend with the streetscape?
Considering these questions determines the style of infill that you choose for your precast sandstone concrete pillar fence. Here are some ideas to help you along.
1. Natural, durable, environmentally friendly – brush fences
Brush fences are often used in many older suburbs with heritage homes. They offer both privacy and function and they blend beautifully with tree-lined streets. They typically last between 30-40 years depending on how well they are maintained. They’re also effective for wind and noise protection.
2. A love of timber - for both traditional and modern homes
Timber brings the warm and natural element to buildings. Timber panels can be cut to solid panels or slats fitted to size and stained to match features of the home.
3. For privacy – filled in fences
If you need more privacy and security, you might like to consider fences with a solid infill. Solid infills can be made of stonework, or coloured concrete to match the home.
Another option is timber or Aluminum Colourbond slats that are installed close together to provide privacy. Brush fence infills are also a good alternative for privacy if you like a natural look.
4. Sleek and modern panels – horizontal or vertical
Aluminum Colourbond panels have become popular due to their longevity and colour matching features. Panels can be installed both vertically and horizontally, with spacing as required. The narrower the spacing between panels the more privacy you have. So it depends on how much visibility you want to the street.
5. Metal for clean lines and visibility to the street
There are many options for metal infills. Tubular fencing and aluminum infills provide variations for heritage, modern or traditional homes. Aluminum Cast or Tubular fencing is ideal for homes by the sea and has a longer life when powder coated. Aluminum infills come in many different designs or can be custom-made if you have a specific design in mind.
