What’s the best material for privacy screens in Brisbane?
There is no single ‘best’ material as each has its pros and cons. Aluminium is a popular option due to its durability and affordability. Wood is always an option, but it needs to be property finished and regularly maintained. For a privacy screen, aluminium is among the best. It is light and strong, as well as being resistant to corrosion. Screens can also be made from PVC, synthetic glass, or a mix of different components. If unsure, contact us for more information on what the best material is for your exact circumstances.
The cost of privacy screens in Brisbane
The cost of your privacy screens will depend on the size and the materials. This is why you should make a clear plan beforehand to avoid unnecessary expenses. Moreover, the complexity will also need to be considered when you order custom decorative screens in Brisbane.
Because privacy screens are intended for outdoor use, they must be able to withstand a variety of extreme weather. Therefore, people often use sturdy materials like perforated aluminium slats and synthetic glass for their privacy screens.
The installation and purchase of an aluminium privacy screen can cost you in the region of $500 – 700 per square metre. An extra installer might cost $80 per hour (if it takes more than one installer) and you might pay around $200 extra if concrete is required for the fence posts. Gates and extra fence posts will all come at additional costs, as will security features such as locks.
If you aim for a more natural look, you can also opt for Brisbane’s plant-based natural screens and timber screens. However, these privacy screens will require more maintenance and trimming. Every privacy screen at FKR Group is made with top-notch materials. Regardless of the privacy screen type you choose, our staff will always provide you with the most competitive price.
How long does it take to install privacy screens?
A number of factors will affect the time taken for privacy screen installation. The time taken to complete the installation varies depending on:
- The total size of the privacy screens
- Whether concrete is required
- How many fence posts are required
- The material the privacy screen is made of
- How many people are there for the installation (rarely more than two)
- Difficulty of site access
- Number of gates required (if any)
- Whether foundations are required
- Removal of existing fence or product
In most instances, it will only take one or two days to complete the installation. But for maximum safety you want to work with an experienced installer. FKR Group has over 30 years of experience in screen installation in Brisbane. We know how to get it done as quickly as possible without compromising on quality.

How long do privacy screens in Brisbane last?
This will really depend on how you treat them. But let’s say that you maintain them pretty well, they can last for many years. They are usually made out of really durable material like aluminium with fibreglass or polyester mesh making them very strong and sturdy.
Can the privacy screens mesh be repaired or replaced easily?
Although the mesh of our products is extremely durable, sometimes, repairs are inevitable. Fortunately, repairs of the mesh material are pretty easy. We can also replace them without much of a problem.
Can privacy screens be installed both indoors and outdoors?
Yes, they can! We just need to take a look at where you want us to install your privacy screens and we will give you the right installation solutions. We can do that during our scheduled onsite quotation.
What’s the difference between regular outdoor blinds/shutters and privacy screens?
Homeowners in Brisbane really have two options – outdoor blinds and privacy screens. Both have their advantages and disadvantages (which is why we offer each of them). A privacy screen can be used to delineate your property and can neatly fit in with surroundings. They can look very nice and come in a variety of designs, though they tend to require a little more maintenance than outdoor blinds.
Do privacy screens need regular maintenance?
Not really since they are rather durable and they can be retracted when the weather becomes too bad. But we do recommend that you do some cleaning maybe once a week so make sure that they don’t get dirty. How often the screens will need maintenance is also a function of what they are made of and what the weather conditions are like.
