Aluminium FAQ’s

The minimum order for any custom colour is $300 (per colour). The custom colour must be the same for all products to the minimum value of $300 This means you can mix and match different products, but the custom colours of all products purchased is a minimum of $300 (per colour). You may purchase, Slats, posts and baseplates, for example, in Ironstone but if the total does not add up to $300 your purchase won’t go through. This only applies to custom colours.

  1. What lengths the slats can be before they require slat support?

There is no general guideline for setting up a screening or gate and when to set up slat support, each structure can be customised to your preference and design. Our technicians suggest a good rule of thumb of adding slat support to any 2m wide structure and adding a post to any 3m or larger structure. So, if your structure is wider than 3m we do suggest separating it into multiple structures for a sturdier finish.
