The project

 

Looking for extra privacy, Workshop member Shannon added panels to extend the height of his fence using a modular design that can be removed for easier maintenance.

Love your work @Shannon. This is what I am looking to do on top of existing colorbond fencing but at a 600m height.  Can you pls link the items you used (posts and slats)?  Thanks!

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @sophiek77. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for jumping into the discussion.

 

Hopefully, @Shannon can answer your questions about their amazing project.

 

You'll readily find fence extensions that are 340mm high, but 600mm is adding a large structure to the top of a Colorbond fence. Our suppliers don't produce larger than 340mm extensions as the additional height, and wind capturing ability apparently is too much stress on the fence.

 

You might like to start a discussion about your project, and I trust our helpful members will have plenty of advice and solutions.
