Creating style & privacy for your outdoor area

With the dominance of alfresco areas in modern building design, new home owners are spoilt for choice with a range of beautiful products and finishes available to suit their taste and budget.

Alfresco is taken from the latin term meaning “in the fresh (air)” and has been adopted by Australians as a style all our own to match our climate and lifestyle.

Genneral Staircase, a prominent leader in the staircase and balustrading industry, caters for alfresco dining areas with a collection of BBQ surrounds and furniture made of powder-coated aluminium, including DecoWood™.

DecoWood™ has a timber grain finish on aluminium and can be custom made for any area. This means that home owners can choose from a range of powder-coat colours including three timber grain colours.

According to Genneral Staircase, managing director, Glen Genner, the company also offers a choice of stone benchtops and hinged cupboards for stylish and practical outdoor entertaining.

“Our selection of outdoor products can be easily hosed down to clean, will not rust or fade and therefore will always look like new,” Glen said.

outdoorFor people who treasure privacy or would just like to create a defined outdoor space, Genneral offers attractive privacy screens with adjustable shutters. To suit the particular environment these privacy screens are custom made for any opening.

“Our screens can be fixed, sliding, hinged or bi-fold, offering flexible design to accommodate changing weather conditions or even shifting neighbourhood dynamics!” Glen said.

“Adjustable shutters are a great way to enable longer days enjoying your alfresco areas, as they can shield direct sun while directing air flow.”

“Like our other DecoWood™ products, the adjustable shutter screens come in a choice of powder-coat colours including three timber grain colours, can be hosed clean and will not rust or fade,” he said.

Genneral Staircase is a prominent leader in the staircase and balustrading industry (since 1971) and is the largest manufacturer in Sydney, producing and installing staircases for new homes and renovations throughout New South Wales. The company also supplies joinery, louvers, decks and pergolas, as well as external balcony rails, fences and mono string staircases.

Genneral Staircase sources its materials from experienced suppliers and ensures that all of its products comply with the relevant Building Code of Australia regulations. All products produced and installed by Genneral Staircase are covered by a seven year warranty.
