Hi @Sorby,

 

Welcome to the Workshop community. It's fantastic to have you join us.

 

Please let me tag @Shannon for you so he is alerted to your question about how the bamboo panels were attached to the fence. Can I ask whether you are planning your own fencing project?

 

Please don't hesitate to post anytime you need a hand with a project around the house and garden. And let me know if you need assistance with getting the most from the site - the Workshop team and I are always happy to help. 

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

I’d love to know how this was done as I would like to attempt it myself. Can it be screwed directly into a colorbond fence?

Welcome to the Workshop community @RobynJ1.

 

An easy way to attach screening panels to your Colourbond fence is to install timber batons horizontally which the screening can screw into. You can use 70 x 22mm 4.8m Decking ACQ Treated Pine cut to length and screwed into the vertical Colourbond posts with Buildex 8 18 x 30mm Climacoat Countersunk Ribbed Head Metal Tek Screws 50 pack. It would also be a good idea to screw the timber into the horizontal Colourbond rail in the middle.

 

Once the timber baton has been installed top and bottom you can use it to screw your panels onto.

 

If you would like further information about this process or had other questions, please let me know.

 

Mitchell

Re: Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

Thanks for the reply. Why can’t you screw the panels directly onto the fence? Why do I need the timber batons? Is it for sturdiness?
