Choices for Bull Street

Golden cypress

The many benefits of using Golden Cypress include its strength, durability, extremely low shrinkage, natural beauty, sustainability and termite resistance.

Magnesium Oxide board

Modak board has been chosen for its aesthetic, durability, excellent fire, water and termite protection properties and because it is carbon neutral and 100% recyclable. Modak Board is currently manufactured in China but Modak are working to manufacture in Australia & have encouraging research into producing it from desalination waste products, thus supporting sustainable best practice manufacturing in Australia.


Space Frame of Galvanised Steel

Steel sourced from OneSteel with 70% recycled steel content. Processed and manufactured in Victoria. Galvanised to prevent corrosion and extend the feature’s life span.

Zincalume Z600 Shadowline 305

Either Fielders double thickness galvanised roofing iron with the old fashioned deeper corrugations or BlueScope zincalume. Both have a long life span with less layers of process than Colorbond. Providing excellent waterproofing, quality rainwater collection, solar reflectivity and aesthetics.
