Our DIY Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens


Our Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens are manufactured from 6063 T6 Aluminium and Powder Coated using Interpon Powder Coating for superior strength and corrosion resistance.  Unlike timber screens, aluminium slat screens won’t rot, warp or require constant painting and maintenance, making it a long term and very cost effective solution.

You can choose from 3 different sizes of slats; 38 x 16mm, 65 x 16mm and 90 x 16mm.

The 65mm and 90mm slats have a centre rib for increased strength and rigidity.  Standard lengths are 1800mm, 2400mm and 3600mm or we can supply cut to size.  Slats are fixed to either u channels or u channel posts for easy assembly on site.

Pedestrian Gates and Swing Gates can be either assembled on site or we can fabricate all types of gates, including Sliding Gates to your requirements.

 

Powder Coating Colours


Our Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens can be powder coated to any colour in the Interpon Powder Coating Range.  We stock a range of standard sizes in Black, Silver, Primrose (cream), and Surfmist (white) and Woodland Grey, or we can powder coat to a colour of your choice with a 5 day production lead time.  We also stock Western Red Cedar colour, which has a woodgrain feature in the powder coating.

Projects and Suitable Uses


Our Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens can be utilised for a wide variety of projects.  You can set the spaces between slats to control the amount of privacy and airflow you require.  Common uses include:

  • Infills for brick pier fences
  • Privacy screens & gates to enclose between the house and side fence
  • Privacy or feature screens on patios, balconies and carports
  • Screens to hide utilities such as wheelie bins, gas bottles, air conditioning units, water tanks etc
  • Feature sun screens on houses, townhouses and commercial buildings
  • Window screens for privacy and sun protection

 

Packaging


Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens are fully packaged for safe and easy handling.  Whilst powder coated aluminium is very robust, it is susceptible to scratching or denting during handling and transport to site.  Oxworks is highly experienced in correctly packaging your order to ensure your order is transported safely and securely.  We regularly aluminium slat privacy screens and components all over Australia and are the experts at ensuring your order arrives in perfect condition.  As the screens are unassembled, freight is very cost effective, particularly in regional areas.

 

Easy to Install DIY Project


Our aluminium slat privacy screen range is designed to be very simple to install.   With proper tools and preparation, most slat screens and fences can be installed in a matter of hours.  We provide a full DIY Installation Guide with step by step instructions on how to measure, set out and install your fence with handy trade tips to ensure you successfully complete the project.  You can also ring us anytime for professional guidance and technical advice if required.  Send us a dimensioned ‘mud map’ of your project and we can work out everything you need to build your compliant balustrade.
