Luxury Residence, Castor Bay, Auckland

Evoking sea and sand-weathered look to reflect this beautiful, sea-facing location, Ancient Oak MetWood finish was specified for a fence and gate that gives privacy to a secluded area of the grounds.  

Aluminium was chosen with a Metwood finish for its low maintenance in a coastal environment, while giving the appearance of a softer wooden look.  Aluminium overcomes some of the issues associated with timber fencing with changing weather conditions where gates and doors often stick when wood expands in wet conditions.

Black Wenge Metwood finish was used for the main entrance louvres providing a softer look than a traditional powder coated louvre, and overcoming the maintenance costs and issues associated with second floor timber solutions.  These louvres were custom made to cater for the exacting requirements of the architect, and Metwood was a flexible product that could be coated on the required profiles.
Black Wenge Metwood finish was used for the main gate and side gate that opens to the beach, to tie into the black timber fencing that surrounds the property, providing a durable aluminium solution to these frequently used openings.  Metwood was applied to external panels of the main gate, which was assembled around a powder coated frame, providing a striking timber look.
Standard powder coating finishes applied by the Powder Coating Group can also be found throughout the house on facades, louvres, flashings, etc. 
“We are delighted with the outcome that has been achieved through the use of Metwood.  We have the appearance of natural wood that softens the look, but have all the benefits of Aluminum in terms of durability, maintenance and a non warping material.  Metwood is virtually maintenance free, so we no longer need to worry about re-staining louvres on the second floor, which will provide a significant cost saving over time”  (Home Owner).
