Hardwood Screening

Hardwood Screening is often used to create a natural and stylish outdoor environment for your home.

Hardwood Screening can be used for a variety of applications. They are an effective and elegant way to add privacy to the entrance of your home, enclose balconies, patios or to screen eyesore areas such as garbage bins or air conditioning units.

Hardwood Screening can be as versatile as you want from horizontal, vertical and angles to screening that is painted, stained or left as is, depending on the look you want to create.

The potential of Hardwood Screening to fulfil any aspect of architectural or landscape design is limited only by imagination.

Janka Rating: The Janka hardness test is a standardised test used to measure the relative hardness of timbers. Specifically, the Janka test measures the amount of force that is necessary to embed a dent half the diameter of an 11.28mm diameter steel ball into a piece of timber. The higher the number the harder the timber is.

(Natural) Durability: Describes the timber's resistance to attack by wood destroying fungi and insects. The sapwood of all timber species has poor resistance and so the natural durability rating applies only to the heartwood of a timber species. Classes are 1 to 4 with the lower the number the higher the performance in terms of durability.


The majority of our Hardwood Screening is supplied in a Select Grade. This means there are no natural features such as gum veins and knots and this will give you a contemporary clean look and feel.
