The beauty is ingrained.

Affordable, architectural-grade panels with the warmth and durability of Australian hardwood.

Grown, milled and made in Australia, OUTDECO’s substrate is 100% authentic Australian hardwood. Unique to OUTDECO are our sustainable 97% wood-fiber boards with a wax bonding agent, free of synthetic glues, something unprecedented in this kind of fiberboard composite material.

The natural differences in the harvested timber give each OUTDECO panel a unique texture and color. Our distinctive designs are precision cut with a router, so it is not uncommon to notice slight router marks in the cut patterns. 

  • Denser and harder than MDF and finer than chipboard; will cut similarly to both. 
  • All-temperature stable exterior grade; durable in cold and hot climates
  • More dimensionally stable than virgin hardwood
  • Lacks grain that splits, can actually outlast timbers
  • Resistant to run-off precipitation (when installed in vertical application, above-ground position)
  • Protected by Decoshield™ Penetrating Protective Stain System, no painting required to protect material integrity
  • Termite Resistant (Accredited testing shows the panels’ material is of minimal interest to termites compared to adjacent natural timbers.)
  • 10-Year Warranty against material rot, bloat, and delamination, under normal outdoor ‘run-off’ conditions. 

Panels must be mounted as a vertical plane, not submerged or in constant contact with water, soil, or chemicals. Not a freestanding structural product. Directions must be followed. Installations are the responsibility of the installer. See full warranty for complete details.

Patterns and Sizes

48” x 70” Series

Our larger 48”x70” panels require less framing, fewer structural supports, and allow for a more seamless look. Weighing approximately 33-38 lbs. per panel, this format may require a trade installation.

A matter of privacy.

Comfort is an inner feeling. Design your level from the outside.

Privacy is something you feel. It may be a level that’s right for you or something compliance-related. With OUTDECO, you have choices — four different privacy levels designed to fit your vision for your space and keep you within code. That kind of flexibility is a real comfort when you want functional space that combines pleasing, adaptive design with suitable privacy.

WHY DIFFERENT PRIVACY LEVELS?

OUTDECO’s privacy options offer engineered levels of screening for personal preference – from blocking-out the neighbors to reducing visibility to the outside for things you don’t want to see, or from camouflaging something you’d prefer be less visible to limiting pet visibility.

SCREENING COMPLIANCE

The levels also offer a clear designation for compliance to specific building codes and local planning or HOA regulations. For many projects, this privacy rating is a compliancy requirement. Balustrades or front boundary fences may have a minimum or maximum screening requirement. Under many local codes, boundary/easement fences can be extended beyond the nominal solid height with an extension having 80% maximum screening. Regulations can be complex and vary from region to region, so we recommend you do your homework on codes for a DIY project or work closely with your building professional to get it right the first time.

POOL FENCES

Our high-privacy designs have narrow slot details making them possible options for part of a compliant, non-climbable barrier structure or pool fence. See specific details on our individual panels patterns and consult relevant authorities, codes, or a building professional.

If you already have a compliant fence or barrier, cover it with OUTDECO panels and transform the aesthetics of your pool or spa environment.

SOLID PANEL

60% Light

Light, open designs are designed less for privacy, more for partial visual partitioning and to create playful effects of light and shadow within an outdoor/ indoor space.

80% Moderate / Compliant

With a moderate to high level of privacy, these designs offer the most versatile and desired balance of privacy and ‘openness’ for many applications. The 80% privacy ratio is directly relevant to many building and boundary applications that require specific compliance. See “Screening Compliance” below.

90% High Privacy

A privacy level that compares to traditional decking timber slat screens or louvered features. The slots are of minimal width, so that at an indirect angle you cannot see through, and at a direct angle you can only see tiny slithers of light through the panel. Great for private entrances or high privacy fences. Also great for cladding and boxing features. For example cladding planter boxes or retaining walls, bench-seats, storage boxes,  for pool equipment and utilities.

100% Maximum Privacy

Solid panels completely block out light and visual intrusion.
