Wot a stud - Alabar Stud

Alabar Stud20 kilometres of fencing posts and rails encircle the stallion paddocks at Alabar (NZ) Ltd Stud Farm in Seagrove Road, Auckland, making rebuilding and painting the complete fenceline a mammoth task.

The original fences were finished in Linseed Oil, a high maintenance stain that required regular recoating. The fences deteriorated rapidly as the stallions found the stained timber pleasant to chew.

Keen to avoid a repeat buffet performance, 20 kilometres of new H3 radiata timber posts and rails were coated in Resene Lumbersider Black. With approximately 2000L of Resene Lumbersider applied directly to the timber, painting metres and metres of fenceline per day was easily achieved enabling the work to be completed in time for the Stud Farm opening day.

Impressed by the fencing result, the exterior coating project was extended to include the office building and Studmaster's home, both of which were finished in Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Grey Olive (beige grey) for a matching satin finish.

With the Resene Lumbersider finish proving more than a match for the stallions, it is living up to its image as the thoroughbred among paints.
