Click-on Screens are available in the following timber sizes and profiles.
For more details around connection capacities, section and material properties and other engineering data download our Technical Datasheet.
Choosing a batten spacing will depend on a your screen application and level of privacy you are trying to achieve, or any fixtures you might be working around.
Below are some suggestions for each batten size based on the proportions of nature.
|Batten Profile||Spacing Options|
|30x60mm||30mm, 50mm, 80mm|
|30x80mm||50mm, 80mm, 100mm|
|30x130mm||80mm, 100mm, 130mm|
Minimum space: 25mm Gap
If your screen is forming a barrier, the maximum gap is 120mm according to the 1170 Australian Standard.
Timber: Up to 3m set lengths*
*Note: Large volumes not available. For confirmation, contact us with your project requirements.
*Note: If longer than 3m is required, finger joined battens up to 4.2m are an option for Australian Ash and American Oak only.
Between clips or clip to the mid support rod.
|Spotted Gum (Interior and Exterior)||1.5m*|
|Australian Ash (Interior only)||3m|
|American Oak (Interior only)||1.5m|
*Note: For exteriors, site specific engineering loads have not been considered such as wind or barrier loads. We recommend consulting your structural engineer for confirmation. You can download our Technical Datasheet here for clip capacities and batten sectional properties.
Back Mount Fixed
Back when using the Back Mount Method a 20mm clear gap is required above or below the batten to enable installation and removal of the battens.
Back Mount Float
Back Mount Floating clip is only designed to take up to +- 5mm for installation and thermal movement. Not suitable for building movement. All mounting tracks to be fixed to a continuous frame that eliminates building movement. If your screen is a slab to slab application, or building movement is expected, refer to the End Mount floating clip.
End Mount Fixed
End Mount Float
The End Mount floating clip can take up to +- 25mm of Building movement if installed with a 25mm gap under the batten.
Split Track - 45x25mm
Used in straight applications for both back mount and end mount. Designed to span up to 1200mm between balustrade posts. Track has pull out adjustment from 25-35mm, to allow onsite packing.
Slim Track - 45x5mm
Default end mount track, designed to be slim to the floor and ceiling. Used for back mount curves down to a 600mm Radius. Fixing of this track must be through the centre of the clip casting.
Where no track is desired for both back mount and end mount. Complex site specific spacing. Sculptform does not take responsibility for the clip to substrate connection. Screw not supplied by Sculptform. Suitable fixing needs to be considered by the installer. M5 or 10g countersunk screw is most suitable.
For applications requiring a large distance between clips, a threaded rod and spacer system can be used as an extra fixing point. The rod runs through pre-drilled holes and uses spacer sleeves to help prevent movement and keep the battens straight. This extra fixing is provided by Sculptform and included in all pricing for screens.
The removal tool has two prongs that when slid into the clip connection, disengage the spring and release the batten.
Note: For back mount, the batten will need 20mm of space above to lift and remove.
The standard Click-on Screens system is suitable for use in a Class 4 corrosivity zones according to AS4312. Please contact us if you require Class 5 or higher.
Please note pool environment classes may vary. Consult your project engineer.
