Gate and fencing specialist, Birkdale has launched Vento, a new composite fence panel to provide a durable and sustainable alternative to timber. The newest addition to the company’s DuraPost® range, the panels are designed for easy install while offering modern aesthetics and longentivity.

Allowing for the creation of both close-board and ‘Hit and Miss’ style fencing, Vento is made from a durable blend of wood and plastic. This, Birkdale says is naturally resistant to rot, splitting, warping and cracking, and is a low maintenance solution that does not require painting, treating or staining.

Every composite board has a minimum of 60 per cent recycled plastic and waste material from the timber industry.

Antony Reed, DuraPost® product manager at Birkdale  said : “Composite products are superior to timber when exposed to harsh weather conditions, UV rays and other environmental factors such as insects and mould. Not only this, but Vento composite fence panels have been tested to withstand winds of up to 110mph. As such, they are incredibly strong and are backed with a 15-year guarantee as standard.

“What’s more, Vento is incredibly easy to install. Best matched with DuraPost® galvanised steel fence posts, simply fix three horizontal aluminium cross rails between the pre-installed DuraPosts®. These cross rails enable the composite boards to slot into place and be firmly secured, removing the need for fixings. This enables a quick and high-quality installation process.

Birkdale also offers a range of accessories including DuraPost® gravel boards, capping rails and post caps.

All DuraPost® products and accessories are available in three colour choices: anthracite grey, sepia brown and natural.

“Furthermore, Vento has been developed with full through colour so that in the event of minor scratches or damage, the overall attractive aesthetic is still maintained,” said Reed. “We are delighted to launch Vento and bring a sustainable and easy to install solution to the market. In fact, Vento is the only composite fence panel available that can be used to create ‘Hit and Miss’ style fencing, in addition to the standard close-board design.”
