Sculptform Free Standing Timber Screen custom profile

The flexibility of our modular screen system allows for the integration of custom profiles where required. To discuss your custom profile requirements, contact us here to speak to a member of our team.

Species and Coatings

Please note - Timber is a natural material and colour variations are inevitable. We’ve prepared an article to help you understand how it all works - you can read it here.

For help choosing the right timber coating for your application, read our detailed guide here.  To find out more about our new Rubio coating, read our blog here.

Colours are reproduced as accurately as possible, we recommend that you request product samples before final selection. Whilst our products are produced as consistently as possible, each species has their own natural variations of colour, features and characteristics. Product samples may or may not fully reflect the colour variation that will occur on the project.

Example Screen Specification

Use the following table as a guide when creating your specification for Sculptform Free Standing Screens. The details on this page will guide you through the range of species, coatings and profile sizes we have available.

Product Name Sculptform Free Standing Screen
Material Timber
Species Spotted Gum
Batten Coating Clear Poly
Batten Size (s) 42x88mm
Sequence NA
Spacing between battens 50mm
Mounting Track Colour Black
Mounting Tracks
Our top track and bottom track are designed specifically for use with timber battens. There are two track width options, to suit the depth of the battens used. For battens over 100mm deep, the 100x6mm track is reccomended. For battens under 100mm deep, the 50x6mm track provides a neater finish.

Base Track

Size options: 100x6mm or 50x6mm to suit batten depth

Material: Aluminium

Colour: Black Powdercoat as standard, can be powder coated to suit requirements at extra cost.

When installed, the timber batten will be fixed at 10mm above the track.

Top Track

Size options: 100x6mm or 50x6mm to suit batten depth

Material: Aluminium

Colour: Black Powdercoat as standard, can be powder coated to suit requirements at extra cost.

When installed, the timber batten will be fixed at 20mm below the track.

Loose Tenons Fixing Method

For applications which don’t allow for the use of a top or base track, the tenons can be fixed directly fixed to the floor and/or ceiling. This adds complexity to the installation, as the track usually comes with the tenons pre-fixed at the required spacing.

While this method leads to longer installation time and complexity, the benefit is that the fixings are even less visible than with the track system.

Spans

As a natural material, timber expands and contracts due to moisture levels in its environment. Screening applications are particularly vulnerable to movement, with the small number of fixings holding the timber in place.

In order to account for the inevitable movement of timber, we recommend the following maximum spans between fixings for interior timber screens to keep the batten straight. Greater spans can be achieved to meet project-specific requirements, contact us to discuss with one of our project consultants.

When calculating the required fixings for a screen, the top and bottom tracks, along with the mid-support rod (see below) are suitable fixings. 

Spans between fixings
Species Timber Batten Size
32x60mm 32x88mm 32x138mm 42x60mm 42x88mm 42x138mm
Blackbutt 1.5m 1.5m N/A 1.5m 1.5m N/A
Burnt Pine 1.5m 1.5m 3.0m N/A N/A N/A

Vic Ash 3.0m 3.0m 3.0m 3.0m 3.0m 3.0m
White Oak 1.5m 1.5m  N/A 1.5m 1.5m N/A

N/A = Species and size combination not available

Mid-support Rod System

For applications which require a large distance between fixings, a threaded rod and spacers 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.

When calculating the span between fixings with the tables above, please note the rod is included as a fixing.

Suitable Applications

Our timber free standing screen system is available for interior applications only. For exterior applications, our aluminium screens offer a timber-look alternative. Contact us here to discuss the requirements of your project.

Batten Lengths

Each species of timber has a maximum length available, as the particular tree only grows to a certain size. These lengths set the maximum height achievable with a timber screen. For applications requiring longer lengths, our aluminium range is a better option, with up to 6m lengths available.

Species Maximum Lengths
Blackbutt 3.6m
Burnt Pine 4.2m
Spotted Gum 3.6m
Vic Ash 4.2m
White Oak 3.6m
Batten Weights
Species Density
Blackbutt 880kg/m³
Burnt Pine 430kg/m3
Spotted Gum 990kg/m³
Vic Ash 660kg/m³
White Oak 755kg/m³

Timber Species – AS/NZS 3837-1998

 

Combustibility

Timber is deemed combustible under AS 1530.1-1994.

If your project requires a non-combustible material please refer to our aluminium range.

 

BAL Rating

Each timber species achieves different BAL ratings according to AS 3959-2009 as outlined below –

Timber Species Bal Rating
Banjo Pine 19
Blackbutt 29
Burnt Ash Not Compliant
Spotted Gum 29
Vic Ash Not Compliant
White Oak 19

 

Maintenance

Interior timber typically does not require maintenance. It is important to regularly check timber which is exposed to UV radiation through windows etc, as this can lead to yellowing of the coating. Re-coating may be required.
