The children attending Kids Club childcare centre, Killara, are enjoying their new centre full of stimulating outdoor play areas.
Surrounding residents benefit from reduced noise thanks to a SlimWall® boundary fence.
Project: SlimWall® boundary fence for Kids Club Childcare Centre
ModularWalls products: SlimWall®

SlimWall® tops for childcare centres
Part of a chain of long day care centres, Kids Club Killara is the newest of 33 centres located across NSW, Qld, and Vic. Kids Club offers children exceptionally creative and thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces.
The boundary fence needed to meet council requirements and match the childcare centre’s modern design.
Council requirements stipulate that childcare boundary fences must be at least 1.8m high and include acoustic qualities to reduce noise reaching surrounding residents.
The Killara Childcare Centre brief was to install a boundary fence to meet requirements such as:
- Reduce noise
- Child safety
- Visually appealing
SlimWall® acoustic boundary fencing
The developer and builder, Gradicon Building, chose SlimWall for its:
- Acoustic performance
- Fast installation
- Quick setup
SlimWall was the preference over other products such as lapped and capped fencing. The developer stated, “SlimWall will last longer and won’t rot.”
SlimWall’s ability to integrate with slats was another winning factor.
SlimWall® – the time-saving and cost-effective solution
Master Groups installed 80 metres of SlimWall with aluminium posts in three days.
A fast installation such as this is a definite competitive advantage, especially when working with tight timelines and budget constraints.
Master Groups confirmed, “SlimWall changes the look of the backyard and boundary line from either side. Plus, it’s easy to install. I can say it’s easier than a timber paling fence.”
The SlimWall was also integrated with timber slats for visual interest while simultaneously ensuring play areas connect to the natural environment.
SlimWall also provides noise-reducing capabilities up to 25+dB.
Children will enjoy nap time free from passing traffic noise and residents won’t be disturbed when the kids go exploring outside.
