If you’re looking to install large screen walls using one or more panels, Sanctum’s cross rail installation system offers a versatile solution which may be perfect for your application.
One of the easiest and most popular options is to build a simple frame to fit the available space and then mount screens to that frame.
By using our cross rail installation system, you can order your screen wall as a complete structure. We can supply made-to-measure, fully framed panels that are designed to slot straight into the available space. Quick to install, they deliver a spectacular result in just a couple of hours.
Sanctum can supply the custom fitted frame, matching screens cut to fit the frame perfectly, and can pre-assemble the whole structure in our workshop prior to delivery.
Our crazy simple cross rail installation option makes it very easy for anyone with basic handyman skills to fit the frames and achieve a stunning result.
How the Sanctum system makes screen walls so easy…
Sanctum ships screens all over Australia, so we have spent an enormous amount of time and energy working out how to make the process simple and reliable. There’s nothing worse than nasty surprises at install time.
Start by accurately measuring the space/s to be screened. It can be a single screen on the side of a balcony, or between pergola posts, or it can be a much larger area that will require multiple panels to achieve the desired result.
The secret to Sanctum’s simple cross rail installation system is that we leave plenty of tolerance right around the screen.
Once we know the measurements, we cut cross rails from heavy gauge square section aluminium, that run from one side of the opening to the other, which form the core structure for the screen wall. When installed, these cross rails will be securely fixed in place using cast alloy mounting lugs and galvanised screws. All framing, brackets and fixings are powder coated to match the screens perfectly.
These cross rails are designed to suspend the screen/s in place, without them sitting hard on the edge of the opening. We normally allow 50 – 100mm space below the screen. This space allows for airflow and cleaning tools to be used between the screens and the base surface, and prevents the screens catching dirt, leaf matter or water which may cause rot or drainage issues.
We also allow a similar 50mm space up the side of each screen, so there is a gap right around the screening. This allows loads of tolerance if a measurement is not quite right, or if a wall or post is not plumb. Essentially, we plan to have the screen wall suspended in the open space, with even spacing on all sides.
Once our spacings are correct, we can cut and fit our screen/s.
