The UK’s leading supplier of fencing and gate accessories, Birkdale, will be returning to UK Construction Week (UKCW) at the NEC in Birmingham from the 4th to 6th of October 2022. Visitors will get the chance to see a selection of products, including the recently launched Vento composite fence panel. The Birkdale team will also be promoting the benefits of signing up to its popular Trained Installer Scheme.
Part of the DuraPost range, Vento is made from a blend of waste rice husk material and recycled plastic. Designed for the creation of ‘Hit and Miss’ style fencing, Vento has been tested to withstand winds of up to 110mph and has a 15-year guarantee as standard.
A durable and practical option, Vento will not rot, split, warp or crack. What’s more, Vento is incredibly light weight and easy to install; a pack of eight boards weighs less than 25kg and each panel can be fixed using just six screws. It can also help to meet sustainability requirements, with every composite board featuring a minimum of 60% recycled plastic.
Birkdale’s Commercial DuraPost® will feature at UKCW too – and also combines light weight, high strength and good environmental credentials. With the ability to resist strong winds, it is available in a range of lengths up to 5m. Manufactured from cold rolled galvanised steel, the post will not rot, warp or twist over time so minimal maintenance is needed. Commercial DuraPost® can also be fully recycled at the end of its working life and is available in three powder coated colour options, including the ever-popular Anthracite Grey.
Those who visit the Birkdale stand will also have the chance to sign up to its Trained Installer Scheme. Free to join, it provides trade professionals with training to further their knowledge of the DuraPost® range, as well as best practice installation techniques. Members will also receive guidance on how best to use the FENCEBUILDER app, which helps to plan installations, produce quick, professional quotes for customers and place product orders.
“We are delighted to exhibit once again at UKCW and look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand,” said John Abernethie, Managing Director of Birkdale, “In addition to our more recent product launches, we will also showcase our signature DuraPost®, an innovative and reliable fence post solution that is ideal for standard fencing projects.”
