We all like our privacy.
You might get on fabulously with your neighbours… or you might secretly yearn for just one of those large gums in the backyard to fall the wrong way in a storm and accidentally wipe out their new extension and stop those prying eyes permanently.
Either way, homes across Australia are all grappling with the ‘I like my neighbours, but I don’t like then watching me have breakfast’ syndrome.
Unfortunately, many people put up with the issue for years, looking yearningly at possible solutions to reclaim their private space.
For Peter and Donna from northern NSW, it was simply a case of interrupting a direct line of sight between the neighbours and their pool area, and an existing rendered block wall was just a touch too low.
They contacted Sanctum Screens about designing a fence extension using Sanctum’s range of outdoor designer screens, and a solution quickly took shape.
Six metres of 600mm high screening was framed up in Australian hardwood, while powdercoated brackets provided the structural rigidity.
The screening was fully assembled in the workshop prior to delivery. Onsite, it was simply a matter of standing the screening in place on the wall, drilling eight dynabolts to hold the screens in place, and screwing the three custom made panels together.
The screens are designed to look equally attractive from both sides, and break the line of sight without totally blocking natural airflow.
In just over an hour, the installation was complete, and both homes now enjoy a new sense of privacy and personal space.
