We are proud of the fact that our steel products are 100% recyclable and no toxic chemicals such as treatments, paints or paint strippers are required for their maintenance. Hosing them down with clean water keeps them looking as good as the day they were installed. This low maintenance combined with the long lifespan of our products contributes to reducing the amount of waste. You can find more information regarding steel recycling processes followed by ColourFence on the Bluescope website. We also review our shipping, handling, and packing processes and materials to minimise damage and product waste and to ensure materials are reused or recycled where possible.
Our commitment to the environment
We understand the importance of nature and wildlife and for many of our customers, this is a key consideration in the design of their garden. There are several things that we can do to help your garden be more nature friendly. We have used advice and specifications issued by the hedgehog trust to incorporate a ‘hedgehog hole’ in your fence, ensuring hedgehogs can pass freely through your garden.
Our fence hangers can be used to encourage pollinators with hanging baskets or to hang bird feeders. Our sheds can be constructed on a special frame to avoid the need for a poured concrete base, reducing groundworks and leaving soil free to drain.
As algae and wood consuming pests will not affect your product there is no need to treat it with herbicide, fungicide or insecticide.
Reducing, reusing, recycling waste
At ColourFence we aim to deliver a circular economy by considering waste as a resource. We are committed to continual improvement of our environmental performance and meeting or exceeding all relevant environmental standards. We actively try to minimise packaging and stationery and sort head office waste to recycle.
Where waste is unavoidable, active consideration will be given to reuse and recycling; if the disposal is unavoidable then responsible waste management is always undertaken. To achieve this we work along with Anyjunk, disposing of any waste in the most eco-friendly way possible and reducing the CO2 impact from vehicles. This commitment includes the day-to-day waste from our Head Office too.
Optimising the use of energy
Our manufacturing operation in Newport, South Wales has procedures in place to help minimise energy use and we work with Welsh Water to ensure that all wastewater from our processes is clear of chemicals and sediment to a standard that exceeds their requirements. We work with our partners to minimise the number of deliveries made to our sites nationwide and to ensure that freight space is used efficiently.
ColourFence Customer Reviews
”We are absolutely delighted with the product and the service. We have had 4 areas done with the brown and the cream over the last 2 years and couldn’t be more pleased. On seeing ours, 2 different friends have done the same and we are all thrilled…no more painting or wind damage. These fences have not moved an inch during the gales and we know they never will. Sharone and his team are true professionals, we have never had service quite like it.
We can’t understand why the country isn’t covered with these smart fences instead of creaking timber panels!”
Jean & John Handley – Hertfordshire
”My recent experience of dealing with ColourFence deserves recording. Stephen Beaumont and his team are a credit to the industry. They were professional and courteous to deal with, and from the initial meeting to discuss my needs, reaching an agreement was very amicable. The erection team arrived very early on both days and worked manfully through atrocious conditions. Virtually torrential rain at times, but the team soldiered on! The end result was excellent, the fence looks fabulous and the team worked very neatly tidying up as they went along. I could not recommend Stephen and the ColourFence team highly enough, very professional and delivered a great product in the end. We are very happy customers”
Joe – Bolton
”We’re absolutely delighted with our new fence, which has totally transformed our garden space. It’s good quality and looks as good as it does on the website. Many thanks to Ollie and Josh, who did a fantastic job fitting it (only on one cup of tea!). Great product, very fair price and friendly, efficient service.”
Tom & Lesley – Cornwall
