Duplex developments must create a sense of privacy and security to ensure a comforting home environment for both parties; especially within the outdoor areas. With duplexes sharing such close boundaries, the dividing fence is the most critical, yet most overlooked, element of the outdoor design.
Acoustic dividing fence
VogueWall by ModularWalls was the perfect choice. For the dividing fence, it was vastly superior to the common metal or timber dividing walls that let down many other duplex developments, in both its noise attenuation properties and its sleek yet robust aesthetic. The developer was able to achieve a premium render-look finish for a fraction of the cost and 1/5 of the install time of traditional rendered brick, without losing land to the wide strip footings that traditional masonry demands.
With AcoustiMax75 panels delivering an approx. 25dB noise reduction, both outdoor spaces delivered a heightened sense of privacy and security, despite the tight boundaries. Ensuring a private, protected outdoor space supported an enhanced outdoor lifestyle factor, and thus creating an attractive home life to prospective buyers.
A dividing fence with superior aesthetics
For the front boundary, the VogueWall perfectly mirrored the aesthetic of a rendered brick wall, boosting street appeal and effortlessly harmonising with the contemporary architecture of the development.
Both walls also easily incorporated customised features such as letterboxes, lighting and slats, offering design potential that timber or metal could simply not compete with. With the option to easily integrate any number of decorative features, retaining panels, or designer wall finishes (such as tiles or cladding), never before has one fence held so much potential.
