FACTORY DIRECT PRICING ON WEATHERTEX TIMBER SCREENS
If you are looking for affordable screening that looks great and is capable of handling Australia’s most demanding conditions, then Weathertex timber screens offer an excellent option.
Sanctum Weathertex timber screens are eco-friendly, 100% Australian grown and made, and can be cut in a wide range of designs to give an exceptional looking, very versatile screening option.
And just in case all those benefits weren’t enough, Weathertex timber screens are around half the price of aluminium, so the value is extraordinary.
Sanctum offers FACTORY DIRECT PRICING on Weathertex timber screens – proudly 100% Australian made for Australian conditions, and shipped Australia-wide.
Weathertex covers their products with a 25-year warranty against rot, bloat and delamination – an indication of the quality of the base material.
We offer a 7-year warranty on Sanctum timber screens on the same terms – simply because we cut so many holes in them.
When properly installed, you can be confident of their durability and longevity.

We simply order a custom configuration of the board from the factory, and then add our artistic touch, in either standard or custom sizing.
We supply these screens raw and ready to coat. They are a natural reddy-brown colour when supplied, and will fade off over time without coating. For best results, they should be oiled or painted to suit.
See our side note on coating and maintenance.
While stocks last, we also have a few hundred standard Sanctum timber screens available
PRE-COATED, and IN-STOCK, AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY, in your choice of Rustic Brown, Chocolate, or Black timber finishes.
Once sold, we will no longer have pre-coated screens available (due to space limitations in our workshop).
Sanctum Weathertex timber screens are a high-quality, solid panel, machine sanded to 8.5mm thickness.
All Sanctum Weathertex timber screens have a ‘face side’ that has a slightly smoother, more refined finish (when manufacturing the board, a finer chopped pulp is added to one side prior to rolling). For best results, mount this face to the side that will receive the most visible exposure.
Like all large sheets of material (plywood, aluminium, polycarbonate etc), there is some natural flex in the sheet.
For maximum durability, Weathertex timber screens should be fixed to solid frames at maximum 600mm intervals around the screen perimeter to provide a secure fixing and eliminate this flex.
You can make your own frames from timber, steel or aluminium, or fix to a wall or posts – just make sure all edges are fully supported.
Sanctum also provide a range of aluminium framing options, as well as standoffs and spacers to fit Sanctum timber screens onto a flat wall.
SANCTUM TIMBER SCREENS FRAMING + INSTALLATION OPTIONS
Sanctum timber screens offer a creative screening option at a surprisingly affordable price.
For long term durability, you simply need to eliminate the flex in the screen. We recommend fixing your screens to a solid surface (e.g. a wall or a frame) around the perimeter at maximum 600mm between fixings.
Here are a few options Sanctum offers to help you achieve an exceptional result with your timber screens.
