Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

Hi Mitchell @MitchellMc 

 

I plan on using Whites Oxy screen panels.

Hi Patrick (@pats6182),

 

I believe that would be possible by pre-drilling the oxy-shield and screwing it directly to the top and bottom rails of the Colorbond fence. You could use Tek screws to fix the panels in place.

 

If you wanted to have a gap between the panels and the fence, perhaps to add lighting behind them, you could use the method I describe on page one by first installing timber battens.

Let me mention @Shannon so he is alerted to your kind feedback and hopefully can answer your question.

 

You might like to check out our range of bamboo panels and poles which look very similar to what is used in this project.

Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

Hi Mitchell,

 

Thanks for all the tips so far - very useful.

 

I was thinking of installing batons along the top edge of the colorbond fence and another horizontal baton just above the planters (ref image below). 2m high fence, but will have to cut to approximately 1.6m above the planters.

With reference to your image above, do I have to nail in every bamboo? Or would it be every 5 or 10 bamboo?

Thanks,

Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

Hi Mitchell,

 

I would like to install your Eden 1.8m x 3m bamboo screens to my colourbond fence. How do you suggest I best attach it? The fence is not super strong and I have limited cash so am concerned about putting three Barton’s across the colourbond panels (in order to be able to secure it well with the flimsy wire it’s made with). 

Also can I ask you whether the blue buttons pictured here are the treated pine recommended or another product? Thanks so much. 

Dani 🙂

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @jeremytan. It's wonderful that you've joined us and many thanks for your question.

 

I don't feel it is necessary to screw through every piece of bamboo. The image was just for illustration purposes. I'd suggest fixing at the corners and then an additional fixing in the middle at the top and bottom. Six fixings should be adequate to hold the panels in position.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.

 

Mitchell

Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Dandan11. It's fabulous to see you've joined us, and many thanks for your question.

 

For EDEN 1.8 x 3m Natural Bamboo Screen Fencing, the method I use is to run guidelines for the top and bottom of the screening to be fixed on. You should begin by placing a couple of Tek screws at either end of the space at the same height as the lighter gauge wire used to construct the screening. Run two lengths of Whites 1.57mm x 60m 1kg Galvanised Tie Wire at the same height across the space and incorporate Zenith 5mm Galvanised Eye And Eye Turnbuckles. The turnbuckles are used to tension the line until it is taut. Spread the screening out over the space and use cable ties to secure the screens wire to the guidelines. Generally, I place a cable tie every 30cms on the top and bottom lines. I've done this several times before, and it has always worked out successfully.

 

The blue batons can be constructed from any exterior timber that is structurally sound enough to span the gap. They could be 70 x 22mm 4.8m Decking ACQ Treated Pine or any exterior h3 treated framing timber.

 

Please let me know if you have questions.

 

Mitchell
