Whether constructing a new fence or putting in a screen, corrugated iron is the perfect choice for a contemporary look.
You will need: Timber fence capping, sheets of corrugated iron, saw, drill, hammer, galvanised nails and screws, paint brushes and fence fastenings. Resene Galvo-Prime and Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Ebony Clay. Resene Woodsman Penetrating Oil Stain in Resene Nutmeg.
To provide shelter from high winds and privacy from neighbours, a framed corrugated iron screen is just the thing.
To make the frames, measure the iron sheets then cut four corresponding lengths of fence capping for each panel (2 sides, 1 top and 1 bottom), cutting ends at a 45° angle.
Paint the fence capping with Resene Waterborne Woodsman penetrating stain before assembling. Allow 24 hours to dry before applying a second coat. Allow another 24 hours to dry.
Apply a coat of Resene Galvo-Prime to the iron panels. We've used new corrugated iron sheets. If using weathered sheets, prime with Resene Galvo One.
When dry, apply two coats of Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Ebony Clay on both sides of the iron panels. Alternatively, use Resene Hi-Glo in Resene Ebony Clay for a glossy finish.
When fence capping is dry, fix mitred corners with galvanised nails or screws. Leave one end of the frame open. Some adhesive on the mitred joints will make for a better connection.
Slide the iron panels into the three-sided frames, then fix the remaining sides to each frame.
