PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Premium panels appear to sit between standard fence panels and driveway gates and in many ways they do. Price, weight and design are all somewhere between the standard range and the driveway range. But that is all really irrelevant as you would not choose the premium range on the basis of price or weight - more often than not it chooses you. Or more precisely your choice of design or size requirements will often simply make the premium range a must have.

ADDITIONAL STRENGTH

Unlike the standard range which primarily uses a system of extruded channels to support your slats the premium range uses a much heavier and stronger system of posts and channels to create posts, mullions and transoms as required to support larger sizes in particular as well as pedestrian gates and design that requires additional top and bottom support. We have posts with inbuilt single slat channels, centre channels and corner channels as well as corner stakes and extruded feet.

ASSEMBLY

Any flat pack product you order is cut to size and ready to assemble and when asked how handy to I need to be we answer that if you can use a cordless drill and a rivet gun you are most of the way there.
Each premium panel will have three essential components –

  • Main frame four sections (mitered corners).
  • Four corner braces.
  • Infill section (cut to size with a small movement allowance).

Despite the extra strength of the frame and the corner braces the real strength of your panel or gate comes from securely fastening your infill sections into place. For example an 1800 high gate may have up to 24 slats in the centre infill and apart from giving us some extra weight we want when correctly fastened in place this adds nearly 100 rivets to your gate and pulls everything together.

ALL THOSE RIVETS WILL LOOK UGLY!

Not with the Automatic Solutions flat pack system. The whole flat pack range includes “concealed fixing covers” which hide all infill fasteners. When complete your covers pop into place and keep everything neat and tidy.

WHAT SIZE RESTRAINTS ARE THERE IN PREMIUM?

Generally speaking premium fence panels should not exceed 2500mm in width. From a material point of view there is no restriction but over 2500mm wide you will find it necessary to brace any horizontal slats and the top and bottom members.
When used as a pedestrian gate we suggest 1000mm as a maximum width.

WHAT POSTS SHOULD I USE?

Ideally use our 65x65 posts with premium panels and gates. You can get the posts in matching colours for the powder coat range and Colorbond terrain for the wood grain Western Red Cedar.

WHAT ABOUT DESIGN?

Choose from various designs which you can vary to individual taste by choosing the required gap between uprights or horizontal members. Click here to view a PDF of available designs.
