One of our newest additions to the premium slatted style range is the Metro panel, which is a contemporary slatted panel offering a sleek alternative to traditional fencing. Metro is a semi-solid decorative panel, ideal for creating a lighter garden where privacy is not an issue.
This panel has been designed with an urban motif in mind, featuring singular pales, similar to our Venetian. The key difference is that the fence posts are less visible, meaning that, when installed, the panel will appear as continuous slats, rather than a run of individual panels. This style of panel has been designed to create a feeling which makes gardens appear longer. Nevertheless, this panel has the ability to modernise and blend into country gardens with its contemporary design.
Constructed from Jakcure® treated softwood, the Metro Panels use our 91mm x 91mm square posts, stainless steel nails are used throughout for longer life. Constructed using 45mm x 16mm horizontal slats with a gap between the slats is 30mm (which is larger than our standard Venetian).
Gravel boards need to be used when panels are in contact with the ground as part of the 25 year Jakcure® guarantee conditions. This panel uses a unique Metro gravel board (667620)
When installing panels into a corner as internal battens will be required. (667300C)
Please note, Metro cannot be used with standard Jakposts. Standard square 91x91mm posts are used and installed behind the panels. Some common panel heights and the panels required, along with the fence post length can be found below.
