        • Choice of products

          • How to choose between small-fold panels, large-fold panels or flat panels ?

            Advantages depending on the type of panel

            Rigid fences, commonly referred to as ‘panels’ are available with or without folds.

            The panels with folds have a high rigidity thanks to the distribution of the folds according to the height of the panel. 

            Between the small-fold panels and the large-fold panels, it is above all a question of aesthetics and subjectivity.  The small folds are shallower (35mm), shorter (100mm high) and have a more triangular shape. The large folds are deeper (50mm) with a softer, more rounded and longer line (200mm high).

            The flat panels do not have this relief (this 3D effect) but combine finesse and rigidity thanks to the horizontal double wires.

            When privacy slats are added to the panels, the large-fold panels require larger reinforcements with rigid privacy slats, this is to be taken into account.

            Small-fold panels will be more discreet when the privacy slats are added.

            The flat panels, due to the horizontal double wires are only compatible with the LIXO® Horizontal privacy slats. This can have an impact on the choice of fence.
             

             

            Recommended combinations
            For each type of rigid panel, the recommended posts are :
            -    Flat panels : AXYLE® post (symmetry of post and panel), AXOR® or AXIS®
            -    Large-fold panels : AXIS® post for sturdiness
            -    Small-fold panels without cut-outs : AXYLE® post, to integrate the depth of the fold into the rebate (width of post)
            -    Small-fold panels with cut-outs : AXOR® post or alternatively AXIS® if privacy slats added

          • The Protect + option, what is it ?

            The Protect + finish uses techniques that guarantee excellent corrosion resistance of the coating.
            Gates with the « PROTECT + » finish are supplied with accessories adapted to a corrosive environment.

            • DIRICKX provides a 5 or 10 year anti-corrosion warranty, depending on the product, in the most corrosive areas. These areas are described in ISO 12944-2, which represents 6 categories of corrosiveness.  Among them, 3 categories absolutely must use Protect + finishing products :
                   C4 High : This category represents for example, industrial atmospheres with high sulphur dioxide pollution or coastal  communities.
                      Distance between the products and the sea : Up to 3km
                      Length of guarantee Protect + : 10 years

                   C5 High : This category represents for example, aggressive industrial atmospheres (eg. Chemical industries) or atmospheres in coastal or maritime areas.
                      For a distance between the products and the sea of between 500m and 3km, the Protect + warranty period will be 10 years.

                   C5 Very High : This category represents for example, aggressive industrial atmospheres (eg. Chemical industries) or atmospheres in coastal or maritime areas. 

                      For a distance between the products and the sea of less than 500 m, the Protect + warranty period will be 5 years for fences and gates*.
                     *Warranty extensions are possible after analysis.

              This option is available for the following colours :
              -    For fences : Green 6005 - White 9010 
              -    For gates : White 9016 - Grey 7016 - Grey 7035 - Black 9005
