Benefits of Australian Made PVC Fencing

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of supporting local industries and reducing our carbon footprint. One area where this sentiment holds true is the use of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) products. While imported PVC goods may seem appealing due to lower prices, choosing Australian-made PVC products offers numerous advantages.

In this blog post, we will explore why opting for locally manufactured PVC items is a smart choice for consumers and the environment.

  • Quality Assurance: Australian-made PVC products adhere to stringent quality standards and undergo rigorous testing. These products are manufactured using advanced technologies and machinery, ensuring superior craftsmanship and durability. By choosing Australian-made PVC items, you can trust that you’re investing in high-quality products that meet or exceed industry regulations.
  • Support for Local Industries: By purchasing PVC products made in Australia, you contribute to the growth and sustainability of local businesses. Supporting domestic manufacturers helps preserve jobs and promotes economic stability within your community. Choosing local products fosters a sense of pride in supporting homegrown industries and ensures a stronger economy for future generations.
  • Reduced Environmental Impact: Importing PVC products from overseas often involves long-distance transportation, which contributes to carbon emissions and environmental degradation. By selecting Australian-made PVC goods, you significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Additionally, local manufacturers often prioritize sustainability and environmentally friendly practices, further reducing the environmental impact of their operations
  • Compliance with Australian Standards: Australian-made PVC products comply with stringent national regulations and safety standards. These standards encompass aspects such as product composition, labelling, and environmental impact. By opting for local products, you can have peace of mind knowing that your PVC items meet the necessary safety guidelines and ethical production practices.
  • Customization and Tailored Solutions: Choosing Australian-made PVC products offers the advantage of customized solutions. Local manufacturers can work closely with customers to meet their specific requirements. This flexibility ensures that you receive a product tailored to your needs while supporting local businesses.
  • Local Customer Support: When you purchase Australian-made PVC products, you gain access to reliable customer support and after-sales service. Local manufacturers are often more accessible, making it easier to address any concerns or queries you may have. By supporting domestic businesses, you can enjoy personalized assistance, quick responses, and prompt resolutions to any issues that may arise.

Choosing Australian-made PVC products over imported alternatives is a conscious decision that benefits both consumers and the environment. By supporting local industries, you contribute to economic growth, job creation, and sustainable practices. Additionally, you can be confident in the quality, safety, and reliability of locally produced PVC goods. So, the next time you need PVC products, make a choice that aligns with your values and helps build a stronger, greener Australia by opting for Australian-made options.


PVC Fencing Cost Compared to Other Fence Types

PVC Fencing has gained a lot of popularity lately, particularly due to the boom in hamptons style homes that has occurred on the Gold Coast. It is also quick to install, is attractive to look at and requires zero ongoing maintenance.

Whilst PVC is an affordable solution many clients have the expectation that PVC will be a similar cost to timber or Colorbond, but this is not the case.

The manufacturing process for PVC fencing is more involved than timber or Colorbond. It also has more detailed and attractive styling compared to plain timber or Colorbond which is effectively corrugated sheets of metal.

The high quality, Australian made PVC fencing products we use at Platinum Property Improvements has a 30 year warranty, compared to a 10 year warranty on Colorbond. This alone gives some expectation on lifespan you can expect when comparing those two fencing styles.

PVC Fencing

We do install Colorbond and timber fencing on occasion. Generally this is when we are working on larger projects and the client is wanting to save money on a boundary fence that may not be too visible from the front of the home.

We also install alot of modular wall fencing where a client is after a premium appearance.

Please note pricing below is just a guide and can change depending on project size and other variables.

Why ModularWalls?

ModularWalls provide better aesthetics and superior performance capabilities relative to traditional walls and fences – but at a more affordable price.
Highly acoustic, fast to install, easy to maintain, and great to look at – it is not surprising that ModularWalls are in strong demand right throughout Australia right now.

Let’s take a look at a few of the many benefits of ModularWalls.

Cost effective $

With the surge in demand for bricks and the increasing cost of bricklayers, many homeowners are looking to alternative wall solutions to emulate the look of masonry rendered walls. This saves renovators from incurring the high costs and hassles associated with masonry construction, and can eliminate the need to apply for council approval.

Reduce Noise

ModularWalls has been National Acoustic Laboratory tested and rated. Typically, you can expect up to a fourfold audible reduction in traffic noise, keeping both traffic and neighbours at bay.

Private and Secure

Whether you want to create privacy in your garden, around your pool, or in your front yard, ModularWalls offer a range of solutions with standard heights available from 900mm up to 3000mm.

Strong and Durable

Composite panel technology provides a panel that is strong, lightweight, and will not rot, warp or corrode. Virtually maintenance free, ModularWalls display amazing rigidity in any situation. The unique post design allows for any future ground movement without affecting the walls integrity, meaning it will not crack like other masonry wall materials.
