|1.||Are all Steel Privacy Fence Systems the same?|
|Most definitely not. There are many variances between the systems currently available in the market. This is why we always insist that you look for the GramLine Brand to ensure your peace of mind. GramLine is the only complete system offering a steel plinth, posts, rails, infill sheet & 3 dimensional steel lattice. Remember we offer a Plain English 10 Year Warranty on our Steel Privacy Fences.|
|2.||What are some of the major differences between the systems?|
|All GramLine Steel privacy Fences are made from quality tested Prepainted steel. Our Steel Privacy Fence system is designed and tested to meet and exceed all relevant Australian Standards for Steel Privacy Fencing. Some manufacturers use lighter, thinner gauges of material that may not perform as well as the tested GramLine System. Again, look for the GramLine Brand for peace of mind.|
|3.||I see where one manufacturer claims that their system is certified to withstand wind gusts of 216klms/hour. Does the GramLine System perform as well?|
GramLine has requested the basis of these tests and results but with no success. The stated wind speed of 216kms/hour falls into a Category 3 Cyclone like Cyclone Roma which hit QLD. Could you see any type of fence surviving a cyclone like that? It is interesting to note that that same manufacturer offers a specific product for cyclone areas and yet it won’t guarantee that product in a cyclone area. Cyclones have wind gusts in excess of 90 km/hour in the centre and gusts can exceed 280 km/hour.
GramLine invented the Sawtooth / Zigzag profile and we have installed over 12000kms of Steel Privacy Fencing. This in itself is testament to our products.
|4.||Is Colorbond the only fencing product?|
|No. There are other steel mills around the world that produce quality tested Prepainted steel that Gram has developed strong working relations with. There is also another Australian company that paints steel using similar technology as BlueScope. The paint finish they offer is SMP which has been proven in Australian conditions for over 30 years. This coating system meets all the current Australian Standards. The one thing you can be assured of is that every GramLine Steel Privacy Fence is made from quality tested Prepainted steel and is backed by GramLine’s 10 Year Plain English Warranty. However there are some manufacturers who use lighter gauge thinner material that may not have the same paint thickness as the GramLine product. Once again – LOOK for the GramLine BRAND to ensure your peace of mind.|
