Sanctum aluminium screens deliver stunning, low maintenance screening options
Looking to for the special finishing touch for your next project? Sanctum aluminium screens are the perfect starting point.
Aluminium is one of our premium screening materials. It delivers an exceptional result that will look great for years with minimal maintenance. Aluminium is lightweight and durable, and can be fabricated into an infinite number of screening and architectural options.
Are my aluminium screens painted or powder coated?
All Sanctum screens are cut to order in our Brisbane workshop and hand finished prior to coating. Rather than painting, all Sanctum aluminium screens are powder coated, where a dry powder is attracted to the aluminium surface using electric current, and then baked on for a durable long life finish.
Most powder coaters are ‘industrial coaters’ – it doesn’t matter to them whether there are little blemishes if the overall job looks ok. We are fussy, and we supply decorative feature pieces which are a major feature in your project, so the coatings must be the same quality as our cutting, and we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure your screens are finished to the highest standards.
All aluminium screen orders include colour matched fixings (screws or rivets) to add extra quality and attention-to-detail to your finished installation.
One of the virtues of aluminium screening is the ability to fold as required. Folding creates rigidity and allows for a smooth seamless effect with minimal need for additional framing.
By folding the edges, you can convert screens into fence panels, fence extensions, wall art or lightboxes.
Larger structures like bin or pool pump enclosures can be built using a combination of folded screens and posts.
Or we can supply a range of framing options, allowing any Sanctum screen to be used in gates, sliding and bi-fold doors, pergola structures and the like.
How thick are aluminium screens?
We only use the highest grades of aluminium, sourced from some of Australia’s most trusted suppliers. We typically cut from high grade 1200 or 1500mm wide sheets of 3mm aluminium, with the capacity to cut screens up to 6000mm long.
For heavy duty applications like pergola roofs and commercial installations, we will commonly use 4mm marine grade aluminium. This delivers a supremely high quality, ultra-durable result with exceptional rigidity. Marine grade aluminium is much harder than lower grade alloys, and is a little more demanding to cut, but it gives a beautiful, first class finish. The thickness makes it physically solid and incredibly rigid, and able to take the harshest conditions you can throw at it.
To make installation as easy as possible, Sanctum offers high end in-house design and fabrication facilities.
Our art team have decades of real world commercial design experience. We go to exceptional lengths to add the detail to help you achieve spectacular results.
Specialist services include:
- Combining multiple different panels into continuous lengths of spectacular artwork
- Transforming screens into workable structures like sliding doors, gates and fence panels, and bespoke furniture.
- Custom fabrication of specialist frames and fittings for specific projects, including bollards, disabled gates, pavilions and pergolas, and the like.
It starts with design and doesn’t stop until it’s perfect. Attention to detail is what clearly differentiates an average screening job from an exceptional one. We weld and flush sand the corners of folded screens. Colour matched fixings are supplied as standard. We build tolerances in carefully, and we’re skilled at building custom brackets and specialised installation options.
A generous dose of perfectionist OCD is supplied free with every job!
