Adding instant style to your outdoor space these slatted screens create an architectural look that provides visually interesting shadow lines and texture. Built with horizontal boards, the aesthetic appeal of this style of screen lies in its simple clean lines and appealing proportions.
Choosing timber which is factory coated saves both time and money. Our factory coated slatted screens are shipped with two coats of Sansin Environ-Stain which deliver an outstanding depth of colour and are ready to install at any time of the year.
Please note that though the battens are coated and protected on all sides, the back of the boards will not be coated to the same visual standard as the face. Marks caused from contact with the drying rack and other irregularities may be visible on the rear of the boards. This will have no negative impact on the performance of the screens; however, it may be visually undesirable if it is intended for use in applications where it may be visible on both sides.
Western Red Cedar contains no pitch or resin, so there is no possibility of resin ‘bleed’ through surface coatings. The combined effect of this together with the dimensional stability of Western Red Cedar can help improve coating performance leading to a lower maintenance requirement.

For ease of installation and to create a uniform gap a 19mm space is recommended between boards. As the Factory Coated Slatted Screen Battens are 19mm thick, a simple trick is to balance the face of a loose board on top of the fixed board, then fasten the next board above this, removing the loose length once completed.
As a guide, a 6ft high (H1.83m) fence requires 32 battens of your chosen length, plus an additional batten per bay to act as a centre support.
