CARING FOR REGULAR BAMBOO SCREENS
All our screens are made from naturally growing plantation bamboo. As with all natural products, there may be some variation in colour and size.
Hairline cracks may appear over time but this will not reduce the strength of the bamboo. It is natural for your bamboo’s colour to fade as time goes by.
We highly recommend coating your bamboo in a clear lacquer or polyurethene every 6 months to maintain colour and longevity. Apply to the bamboo surface, but also to the naturally closed nodes at the top of the bamboo fence. The sealer prevents bamboo fibers from absorbing moisture and reduces the volume and speed of moisture exchange with the bamboo’s surroundings.
CARING FOR COCONUT WOOD SCREENS
Coconut wood is a rich, vibrant wood with a fibrous grain. We are proud to be introducing this wood into our range with the introduction of our “Canggu Screen” product, as coconut wood is one of the most environmentally-conscious substitutes for endangered hardwoods.
Unlike veneer or plasticised wood composites, coconut wood has individual and natural characteristics. No two pieces are ever the same. Its density performs at a level equal to or even better than conventional hardwoods.
Over time, sunlight and air will naturally dry out coconut wood. To maintain the longevity and appearance of your product, lightly sand and apply a natural beeswax or timber oil every 12 months.
CARING FOR LASER-CUT BAMBOO SCREENS
Our specially engineered, laser-cut bamboo screens are made from 100% plantation bamboo.
Bamboo pulp is treated against insects and bugs and then mixed with anti-mould solutions. The pulp is then pressed and “baked” into sheets. The sheets are then cut into creative and beautiful designs with precision lasers.
Your engineered bamboo screens can be painted. If this is your intention, before painting, please sand back lightly and apply a primer.
These screens are coated with a water-based sealant. Over time your screen will fade. We recommend you reapply a protective coat every 12 months.
HANDLING HARDWOOD STAKES
Our stakes are rough-sawn, so please always handle your stakes with gloves on.
Always hammer in your stakes with a proper hammer or mallet to ensure stability.
