Silesian Botanical Garden in Mikołów The Silesian Botanical Garden in Mikołów is the largest botanical garden in Poland, which has been operating since 2003.

The mission that guides the garden authorities is is to protect and preserve the endangered plant species of the Upper-Silesia region form the future generations. To achieve this objective, the garden also runs an environmental and ecological education among children and young people. The garden participated in 2012-2014, as the only partner from Poland, in the international Hybrid Parks project, co-financed by the European Union under the INTERREG IV C Program. The main objective of the project was to make parks and gardens fully involved as the part of sustainable development of cities and regions. The project also assumed the use of parks and gardens for projects related to the mitigation of climate change. In recent years the Silesian Botanical Garden has gone through thorough renovation works. New plants were planted, the nature trail was renewed, modern paths were prepared. Nowadays the Garden is also used for mass events. For these reasons, it required a reliable fence around the whole area. On the front part, rigid Nylofor 3D panel fencing in green colour was chosen. It was installed on rectangular posts with collets on the length of 150 m.

Why are Nylofor 3D panels one of the most popular solutions for securing public spaces?

  • Nylofor 3D fence panels are made of galvanized steel wires coated with a high-strength polyester coating. The durability of the coating is ensured by the process of thermosetting at high temperatures.
  • Additional stiffness of panels, extremely important in such circumstances as mass events and student visits, gives horizontal profiling of panels. Stiffness and durability of the fence are extremely important in public spaces protection. It must set communication paths, and at the same time be a protection for such sensitive exhibits as plants.
  • The Nylofor 3D system is available in standard green and zinc. It is possible to order many other colours from the RAL palette at the customer's request. The Silesian Botanical Garden in Mikołów decided to choose a green colour, because it perfectly harmonizes with the surrounding greenery, emphasizes it, brings out its beauty.
  • Nylofor 3D panels, thanks to their design, do not cause feelings of overwhelming in visitors. Thanks to the translucency of the panels, the garden area is not cut off from people in its area. Nylofor systems can be installed on several types of posts, but the garden authorities were primarily interested in the ease and speed of assembly. Therefore, rectangular posts for clamps proved to be the best choice. The columns have a rectangular cross-section, are galvanized or galvanized and coated with polyester powder.
