Composite Fence Panels Informations
Composite fence panels are made of a material in which the best properties of wood and plastic are combined. Composite does not rot, does not discolor and requires no maintenance. A fence panels made of composite is very durable and if you choose good quality you will benefit for a lifetime. Information about the types of composite fence panels and their prices can be found here. They are two types of composite for fence panels. First, WPC composite (wood fiber). WPC composite consists mainly of (hard) wood dust originating from sawmills (for example parquet industry) and recycled polyethylene. The quality of the raw materials and the ratio of wood / plastic determine the hardness and wear resistance of the end product.
Second, BPC Composite (bamboo fiber). BPC is a modern type of tomato. It consists for the most part of bamboo fibers and plastic (polyethylene). These substances are pressed together with a binder under high pressure in a mold, resulting in a strong material. BPC is harder and stronger than WPC but is also more expensive. Veranda composite fencing (WPC and BPC) are available in sizes 180 × 180 and 90 × 180 cm. Common colors are: gray, anthracite and brown, but other colors are possible. The horizontal beams in the panel can be made of composite or aluminum. You can also combine these panels with composite trellis screens of 90 × 180 (or larger). These are wire panels made of powder coated steel wire. They are very suitable to be covered with climbing plants, giving the fence a more open and natural character. The cost of this type of panels is also a lot lower.

Because do not rot and is resistant to insects (woodworm, termites); Does not tear, does not splinter, can be processed in the same way as wood (only nailing is not possible); Does not or hardly in the sun; composite is recyclable. While the disadvantages are: more sensitive to scratches than, for example, wood. Can be lightly sanded in some cases, but deep scratches remain visible; special fasteners are required. The fencing parts must be able to work so that they do not warp. Especially the cheaper types of composite are susceptible to deformation.
