Modwood fencing is one of the popular fencing choices in Australia. Hence, in this blog post, we will discuss Modwood fence flame protection.

Modwood, being made from recycled wood and plastic, is a composite wood product. Its close-to-natural-looking timber-like appearance has all the benefits of the nice looks that the timber products have, yet does not require the maintenance that traditional wooden products do.

Modwood – the designers choice

Modwood material is a designer’s choice for many reasons. Be it for a residential patio or commercial fencing in Melbourne, this fencing style provides a good balance between functionality, looks and sustainability. With virtually no maintenance, Modwood products, fencing included, have a long life span. Eye-catching design that takes the environmental aspects into consideration. Not to mention that Modwood is a local product produced here in Melbourne.

Additionally, Modwood fencing looks like timber but does not have the faults of natural timber. For example, wind cracks, twisted fibres or water stains. It is also quite simple to install Modwood fencing and it does not splinter, rot or warp. You do not have to worry about the termites either as they do not affect Modwood fencing.

Lastly, Modwood comes usually with quality assurance – a 10-year residential (7-year commercial) warranty. That should give you peace of mind for a decade at least.
