Screen design and finishing
One of the main things that sets Sanctum apart from other screen suppliers is the quality and detail in our artwork.
Our artist Meagan has a 30-year professional background in commercial design, and a crazy love of both graphic design and architecture.
We can extend any of our screen designs into large formats as required to be used in sliding driveway gate installations.
Often this requires seamlessly combining multiple images and / or creating new artwork from scratch.
Sometimes it is more practical to spread the one image across multiple panels, and we also have high-end ability to complete this process with the highest levels of detail and precision.
We will create artwork and supply a detailed proof for your approval prior to cutting anything.
To ensure the best quality results, we also regularly test cut components of the job in advance of supplying the artwork, just to be sure we can deliver you the best possible result.
We also have large capacity cutting equipment in-house and can supply screens up to 5200mm x 1800mm as a single panel if required. Obviously, there are some increased logistics and costs involved with creating and handling panels of this size, but they look fantastic and results speak for themselves.
Our sliding driveway gates are typically cut in high-grade 3mm aluminium – it’s a beautiful product that looks great, and will serve you well for many years.
For premium and commercial installations, we will commonly recommend using 4mm marine-grade aluminium.
It may not sound much, but 1mm of extra metal equates to 33% more bulk, with equivalent gains in strength and stiffness, and the finished results are truly stunning.
Once fabricated, all frames, screens, fittings and fixings are all powder coated to match in your choice of more than 100 Dulux or Interpon powder coat colours.
Prior to shipping, we will then assemble your screens into the frames, using adhesive sealant (which bonds the screens into the frames and kills any screen rattle), plus additional colour matched rivets for extra strength.
