Grange are introducing several new fence panels and gates in 2017 and Andy Taylor has been looking at these fresh additions to their already impressive collection of timber products.
With gardens becoming smaller, neighbours closer and roads busier, we all suffer from different types of noise pollution. But, as Andy Taylor reports, Forest have now come up with a new kind of fencing that minimizes this nuisance.
Peace and privacy, that's what most people want from a garden and the latest innovative fencing from Forest guarantees that from now on any outside space can be a much quieter place in which to relax.
Their brand new Noise Reduction Fence Panel features Triform Technology, this means that the boards have a specially developed profile containing multiple angles that disperse noise and reduce its intensity.
How effective are these panels? The answer is very effective, making your environment a much calmer and enjoyable space especially if you live near a road or any area where noise is an annoyance.
This is achieved by the new technology reflecting, diffusing and absorbing noise, reducing everyday distractions such as a neighbour's lawnmower down to the level of a conversation.
Equating to a 30 decibel difference, this is quite a result if you value your garden's tranquillity.
You'll also be pleased to know that the ground breaking technology does not adversely effect the fencing's appearance which features a smooth planed finish to highlight the timber's natural beauty.
17mm tongue & groove boards can run either vertically or horizontally to emphasize height or length, and a 45mm gap free frame ensures that no noise passes through.
As the wood is pressure treated, a 15 year guarantee is offered against rot, so the fencing offers a long term and very attractive enhancement to your garden.
There's no doubt that Noise Reduction Fence Panels will be a welcome addition to any garden that suffers from loud neighbours, nearby traffic or any other adjacent sources of noise, and they are a very welcome addition to the Forest range.

April, particularly if you are on holiday over Easter, is the time when gardeners, whatever their level of enthusiasm and skill, want to get into the garden. Andy Taylor looks at the gardening jobs that can be achieved this month.
With rising water temperature and kinder weather, April is a good month for pond maintenance and Dan Everton takes a look at the jobs that need to be done this month.
