NEED IDEAS FOR SCREENING? HERES THREE GREAT PRODUCTS TO CONSIDER

Posted on Nov 2, 2016

Screening is practical, versatile and absolutely necessary to architecture – particularly in the unforgiving Australian climate. There are a plethora of amazing products on the market, and new ranges are being developed all the time.

The design of your screening is going to be one of the most important considerations, as it will be the primary way in which people see and interact with it. If the intent is to conceal unsightly features or to act as ventilation it will make more sense to choose a colour that blends with the building. If the screening is being used as a design feature, the choice of a contrasting colour can draw the eye and look visually appealing. Waterproofing will need to be considered as part of the...
