3x PRIVACY % RATINGS
Each pattern design has an engineered privacy/ blockout rating. This indicates the amount of UV or vision that is blocked or screened-out. For many projects this may not be a critical point, but it does give a guide to the visual effect, and for many projects, this privacy rating is a compliancy requirement. For instance under the BCA (Building Code) new dwelling with features overlooking neighbours (balconies, some windows etc) a minimum of 80% screening is required. In other instance balastrades or front boundary fence may have a minimum or maximum screening requirement. Under many local councils boundary/easement fences can be extended beyond the nominal solid height with an extension with maximum screening 80%. Information relating to compliance and any rules and regulations may change or vary, so please check with your local authority.
Create a delicate airy feel. Great for decorative effects, or to create visual partitioning without dramatically cutting-out natural light.
These design are popular for interior effects, offset on walls, or as suspended ceiling details.
80% MODERATE PRIVACY
The most versatile rating. Creates decadent light and shadow effects, whilst offering considerable privacy or barrier partitioning, where needed. Great for open (seen from both sides) partitioning, or for shadow walling effects (framed against a wall or fence). Numerous regulated compliances for screening on new-builds or boundary structures work to an 80-20% rule for privacy or sunlight blockout. For regulations consult your builder or local council.
90%+ HIGH PRIVACY
The ultimate in privacy. This gives an almost total blockout, with only fine shards of light or vision when looking at the panel straight-on. The privacy and visual effect is on-par with traditional timber slat screening, but opens up a whole palette of new ways to see a vertical surface. These design are also very effective for back lighting with LEDs
