TrendWall™ offers sleek, antirust pool boundary with aluminium posts
20 March 2017
The owner of this home in the Sydney suburb of Concord wanted to build a tall pool boundary boundary that would be aesthetically pleasing, yet resilient. The homeowner also wanted the boundary to be highly durable and antirust, to withstand the corrosion that can afflict structures situated in maritime environments or within close proximity too pools .
In order to satisfy the multiple requirements for the project the homeowner opted to use TrendWall, which permitted the creation of a durable, aesthetically pleasing boundary fence that can better withstand salt and chlorine-related corrosion.
The use of aluminium posts within the TrendWall system makes the completed boundary fence far more resistant to the corrosion associated with swimming pools or maritime environments, helping to reduce maintenance costs as well as extend product life cycle. These narrower, flatter posts protrude far less from the surface of the wall itself, providing owners or developers with the option of a more discrete and unobtrusive appearance.
Because of the terrain surrounding the property the homeowner wanted to incorporate a retaining function into the boundary wall, as well as minimise space consumption and cost. The 2-metre tall wall for the property in Concord also made use of TerraFirm retaining panels at its base to fulfil a soil retaining function up to a height of 60 centimetres. This significantly reduced costs as well as saved on land space by avoiding the need to build a separate retaining wall in addition to the boundary fence.
The space economisation was especially important for the project, given that the boundary wall encloses a backyard recreational area and sizeable home swimming pool.
