Combined with ginger dove screens to build privacy fence for our hot tub. Delighted. The design is somewhat open and these do not afford complete privacy, but we wanted light to pass through for vegetation, and love the aesthetic of these. Somewhat flimsy and require vertical support (we used 1" cedar) along the back side to keep from buckling or moving in strong wind. Would purchase again.
After installing my pressure treated deck last fall, i let it bleed out till spring. I chose cedar red stain with black accent. But when i looked at that dull diamond shaped PT lattice i hated it and wanted something fancier that would compliment all the black. I chose this and i do not regret it. Its thick and sturdy yet simple enough to cut with a multitool. I absolutely love the way it looks and i cant stop looking at it.
It's been a few years now since we installed this product as a privacy/shade screen by a patio. We get compliments on it often, and it's withstood the wind and elements of SoCal nicely without any change at all. Since the lattice is somewhat flexible, it needs reinforcement along the perimeter and between panels when it's suspended between a pillar and wall as we did. We used metal and the vinyl strips for other types of lattice panels. It's easy to paint and there's been no peeling or chipping. We're getting ready to purchase another similar product for a screen for some mechanical lines beside our house.
Purchased 2 of the beautiful Ginger Dove design for an interior screen door we custom built (to keep the mischievous cat out of the master en suite without blocking the heat from our wood stove and without blocking the dog's view). Other reviewers have mentioned the panels are a bit flimsy, and we found they are even flimsier than we imagined -- a boisterous teenager or large dog could break or chew through it if they tried. We wouldn't recommend this for anything structural, just decorative (and we won't be able to use these panels to substitute for railings on a staircase which was one of our other project ideas). But it is easy to cut with a jig saw or similar, and the material and quality are consistent throughout. So far the cat hasn't tried climbing it, and we have an elegant solution to the problem. Still some trim work to do around the door as you see in the photo, but it has changed our life and the cat's -- we don't have to lock him up at night and we still stay warm!
After seeing a similar design from a reviewer of this product I decided to purchase four panels to build a disguise around my AC unit. It turned out great. Panels are thin but strong although not completely rigid. There is some flex to them. I was able to cut them on my table saw as I had to shorted the height. No issues screwing and nailing the panels into my four by four wooden posts.
I love the design of this product but it is very inconsistent I found that out of the five I ordered two of them were never out of square i was able to use them because of the use but I was disappointed in that.
The panels were packed well and were not damaged in any way.
I mounted them to the frame I made and they look really nice.
The panels are quite flexible. I would have preferred a little more stiffness. My frame only supports on the top and bottom so I thought the flexibility could be an issue, but so far (4 weeks) it has not been.
The panels provide the privacy I wanted.
