Privacy Screens – 8 ways they can enhance your property

Your home is a place to relax, spend time with friends and family and escape the outside world. With constant development and neighbouring houses edging ever closer, it can seem almost impossible to achieve these basic desires. Whether you live in a unit or freestanding home, our extensive range of glass and aluminium privacy screens will let you take back control by enhancing privacy, reducing noise levels and creating a safe space you can call your own. In this blog post, we’ll be highlighting 8 ways in which a privacy screen can enhance your property.

Entertaining Areas

Everyone loves a backyard barbecue and catch up with friends. If your outdoor area isn’t quite as private as you’d like it to be, privacy screens can help. Unlike solid boundary fencing, privacy screens will help to create a calm, open ambience by allowing natural light and air to flow through. Privacy screening is affordable and quick and easy to install.  You’ll never need to worry about prying neighbours or passers-by again, and you’re likely to get a whole lot more use out of your outdoor space than you otherwise would. It’s a no brainer!

Hide Air Conditioners and Hot Water Systems

We all love our creature comforts, but the exterior units can be pretty unsightly. Aluminium privacy screens are a great way to block out these eyesores whilst also giving them some added protection from the elements. You will still enjoy easy access to the unit, and your garden or outdoor area will look stunning all year round.

Cover up the pool filter

Your pool might look clean and inviting, but an unsightly (and noisy) pool filter can really get in the way of a good time. Keep it hidden out of sight with one of our privacy screens and enjoy your pool area all year round.

Privacy from neighbouring dwellings

This is one of the most common reasons for installing privacy screens, whether you live in close proximity housing or a multi-storey unit block. Choose from aluminium or glass depending on your preference, both of which can be fitted easily to your existing deck or property surrounds. A frosted glass screen will allow more light, whilst an aluminium slat screen will allow ample sunlight and air to flow through.

Use around granny flats

Many Australian home owners are now choosing to construct granny flats on their property, generating a source of income and coming in handy when friends and family come to visit. Naturally everyone wants some privacy, but solid fencing can seem a little imposing and disruptive. Privacy screens will blend in with the landscape better, and everyone will be able to coexist happily.

Use around carport

Give your car a bit of extra protection against the elements by installing privacy screens along the outer perimeter. A roof can only do so much, but a privacy screen will add an extra layer of security and reduce the amount of dirt, debris, wind, hail and rain that gets through. It will also help to lift the appearance of your carport and help it to blend in with the rest of your home.


Do you have windows in clear view of neighbouring properties or the street? Don’t resort to keeping the curtains shut, simply contact us and have a privacy screen installed on the exterior. You will still get to enjoy the suns rays flowing into your home, along with the cool southerly breeze.

Garden Retreat

If you’ve got a beautiful garden, why not create a space where you can take in the surroundings. An aluminium privacy screen with a dark green coating will blend in seamlessly with the lush greenery, and it will help to create the perfect outdoor retreat. Sit back and relax with a book whilst enjoying the sounds of nature, and rest easy knowing that the space is your own.
