You should preferably choose a day without wind; if there is any wind, position yourself with your back to the wind, or in the same direction as the wind. Never position yourself facing the wind. Try to get some help, it's easier and quicker when there are two of you! The screen should be kept taut during installation. Avoid any 'pockets'.
Permanent installation using staples
Remove a row of staples from the blister pack. Open the back of the pliers by pulling the trigger back and lowering the green handle, thus freeing the charger. Insert the row(s) in the charger. Close the charger until you hear a slight 'click'.
Staples should be positioned every 30 cm in each direction. Double this quantity in areas exposed to the wind.
Unroll 30 to 50 cm of the screen. Position it on the fencing, making sure it is straight vertically and that the edge is level with the top of the fencing. Push the 'jaws' of the pliers through this edge.Tighten; it is now attached. Then descend approximately 30 cm. Push the 'jaw' of the pliers through the screen. Tighten. Continue in this way down to the bottom, then move sideways approximately 30 cm. Repeat the operation as many times as is necessary. The privacy screen should not have any 'pockets' or create any 'sail' effects when the wind blows.
Installing a screen with grommets using ball ties Simple, quick, efficient and can be dismantled!
Unroll part of the screen. Position it on the fencing, with the grommet at the top level with the top of the fencing. Fold the elastic in half. Thread the elastic into the grommet up to the ball. Retrieve the elastic from behind and pass it over the ball. It is now attached!
Installing a screen using cable ties
Staples cannot be used when installing on a thick or large support (fences, balconies, etc.). We recommend you use our cable ties (tie wraps). These are suitable for diameters up to 3 cm maximum. Beyond this size, cut sections of cable from small rolls of cable (available from DIY stores).
Ties should be positioned every 30 cm horizontally and vertically. Double this quantity in areas exposed to the wind.
Unroll 30 to 50 cm of the screen. Position it on the fencing, making sure it is straight vertically and that the edge is level with the top of the fencing. Push the pointed end through the edge, wind round the support, push the end through the edge in the other direction (we recommend someone to help you on the other side) and push it through the closing mechanism. Tighten; it's now attached! Cut off the excess to avoid injury. Then descend approximately 30 cm and repeat the operation, pushing the tie through the screen this time. Continue in the same way down to the bottom, then move sideways approximately 30 cm. Repeat this operation as many times as is necessary.
The screen can easily be dismantled by cutting the ties
To fix to cables, tensioning cords, ropes, elastic cords, etc. Grommets are particularly recommended for shade cloths and in some cases, privacy screens. They are positioned on a reinforced seam at the edge. 4 grommets per linear metre at the top and bottom, or in each corner, according to your design. The cost of adding a grommet is €1.20 incl. Tax
New!: you can also use our very practical bungee ball ties, sold in the Accessories section.
