To give your patio or deck shade or privacy, Screen panels are a great looking solution that are so easy to build yourself.
But when the slats span greater than 1.8 metres it’s a great idea to provide a centre brace to prevent the screen timber from twisting and warping.
This need not be another post but simply use a piece of 70 x 35mm pine, or 50 x 50mm hardwood. If you’re using hardwood screening then you can even use a length of it. Make sure your bracing Timber is treated H3 for outdoor, above ground application.
Simply run your brace from the Top Board to the Bottom board and fix it to each piece of screen with 2 – Galvanised or stainless Screws.
