Need more privacy from the neighbours? Want to hide an old or unattractive fence? Why not give your backyard a quick D.I.Y. makeover with DECO’s range of aluminium building products. Here are some ways you can screen your outdoor living areas and freshen up the backyard.

Aluminium is not only a low maintenance solution for a screen, but it is also surprisingly very easy to install. If you are after a traditional privacy screen look, we recommend using our DecoSlat® product. For a more contemporary on-trend aesthetic, our rectangular battens by DecoBatten will look the part.
Both products are available in either woodgrain, concrete, rust-look and plain colour finishes so there is a solution available for all backyard designs.
The advantage of using a product like DecoSlat®, is that you can adjust the height and placement of each slat to selectively screen unattractive views.

The spaces between the battens or slats allow air and light to filter through while creating a sense of privacy.
Timber-look battens are great for adding warmth, depth or texture to space. This eye-catching vertical batten fence adds a contemporary, geometric feature to the space, and works well against the block colour on the wall, offering a nice contrast to the finish of the woodgrain powder coat.
Keep your expensive equipment, utilities and pool pumps protected as well as your outdoor area looking nice with DecoWood®. DecoWood® is more durable than standard powder coating and will never peel or rub off. Unlike timber, aluminium is resistant to termite attack, and it will never warp or rot. It is also chemical resistant which makes it a popular choice for use around pools and spas.

In addition to these features, DECO is also proud to supply the market with an ecologically sustainable alternative to other building products commonly used for screening. Aluminium is a highly recyclable product, with over 75% of the aluminium in use in the world today having been recycled. Aluminium does not have the environmental issues associated with the use of other materials such as timber and composites.
Our finishes are created with a super durable powder coating that never requires painting or staining, and therefore produces none of the VOC emissions that are involved with paints.
