Hi there. Im hoping someone could help me figure out what I would need to put a few screen panels as a room divider in the verandah. We have this huge concreted and enclosed verandah and to make it purposeful, we’ve decided to put up a divider. I’ve attached a photo of what Bunnings has to offer and was wondering, is this secure enough to stand on their own. Probably thinking of 3 screen panels. The verandah roofing is an A line roofing so I’m not sure how we go about putting something to hold he screens up. There won’t be any post to bold the screen to on both sides.
Also, if anyone has other recommendations on what other ways to put divider, I am happy to hear some ideas.
Any advice for this novice DIY person would help heaps. Thanks..

Thanks heaps. Looking forward to hear more ideas as this isn’t something that comes naturally to me 😅
Thank you for sharing your question about the Matrix panels as room dividers.
The set you asked about is actually a floor-mounted version of the Matrix panels. I would have to call the manufacturer on Monday to get more information on which kit you would need to join the 3 panels together. The Matrix floor mounting kit is made of steel and is strong enough to stand on its own. No ceiling anchor is needed to keep them standing.
Once I have the information on how to join the panels, I will relay it to you as soon as I can.
I've spoken to the supplier and they have given me the order sequence for you to join 3 panels together. Based on the sample you posted you need to order:
These items will need to be ordered at the Special Orders Desk at your store. I suggest using Dynabolts to mount your posts if you have a cement floor or a large diameter screw for timber floors.
Let me tag our experienced member @Chaks_DIY for additional recommendations.
If you need more information about other projects you have going on around the house, please let us know.
Oh this is very helpful @EricL and very much appreciated. Thank you so very much for the effort you put in to find out the details for me. Do you think this set up would stand if not dynabolted to the concrete? Ie. if we need to have it as temporary for the next few months.
