General Bamboo Screen Large Natural
Our Bamboo Screens Large Natural are available in various sizes and designs. With a bamboo screen of 120 cm high you can make a low garden fence, while with a screen of 180 x 180 cm you can build a complete garden fence. You can also combine horizontal and vertical screens to create a playful effect.
More information about the properties of Bamboo Screen Large Natural and how they can be attached can be found in the description of each product. If you have any questions or would like a custom quote, please do not hesitate to contact us. Of course you are always welcome to come and see the braided bamboo screens and pick them up directly.
A Bamboo Screen Large Natural has a top and a bottom. The top can be recognised because the bamboo poles there are naturally closed. Therefore, do not place the fence with the open bamboo poles upwards, as rainwater and dirt may remain in the bamboo.
We also recommend that the bamboo screens are placed at least 2 cm from the ground so that they are not in direct contact with wet soil, as this can cause black discolouration over time. You can, for example, use a side board during installation on which the bamboo garden screen can rest.
- We do not recommend attaching our Large screen to an existing fence. If you have no other choice, it is best to make sure there is something for the screen to lean on. The screens are very heavy and should not hang too much against the fence. To attach a Bamboo Screen Large Natural to a wooden fence or wall, drill 7 mm holes through the bamboo poles (just below the horizontal spike). Do this every two bamboo poles in a horizontal direction and screw the bamboo screen in place with 6 x 100 mm screws. Attention, fixed is fixed! Screw the bamboo garden screen to the top and bottom for maximum stability.
- Do you have no existing fence to mount the bamboo garden screen against? No problem. With our special Stainless steel mounting clamps and hardwood garden poles you can install a Bamboo Screen Large Natural in any location. Halved bamboo poles can be screwed to the hardwood garden piles for a nice finish and to hide the garden piles.
- A big advantage of bamboo is that it is an easy material to work with. You can shorten the width of a Bamboo Screen Large Natural by sawing through the internal bamboo canes to the desired width. Make sure that you secure the outer bamboo pole back in place with screws.
- To adjust the height of the bamboo fence, you can cut the bamboo poles at the bottom. Preferably use a saw blade with fine teeth and tape the bamboo poles with strong tape to prevent the bamboo from fraying.
When used outdoors, bamboo will start to grey. We therefore advise to treat bamboo annually with Booster, a specially developed natural oil that slows down the ageing process and increases the durability of the bamboo. In addition it nourishes and cares for the bamboo. Bamboo Booster is easy to apply using oil absorbent wipes or a brush.
- Each bamboo cane is unique, so colour differences in a bamboo garden screen are normal.
- The diameter of each bamboo cane in a bamboo screen can vary.
- Vertical cracks can/will appear in bamboo garden fences. Like wood, bamboo expands or shrinks with changes in temperature or humidity. However, cracks have no effect on the lifespan of the fence.
- In the autumn months, almost everything discolours, including bamboo garden fences. However, this discolouration is easy to clean during the summer months.
