WANDA VARIO made of metal
WANDA VARIO – frame
The heart of our WANDA VARIO privacy screen is a frame made of metal that can be opened at the top and filled in this way. Normally the frame is set in concrete in the ground so the wall stands securely even in strong winds. Alternatively, the frames can also be fixed to a solid base with a screw-on foot or mounted between stone columns or wooden beams for example. Please note that considerable forces can act on the walls!
Our privacy screens are 180 cm high. As standard, they are available in three widths: 50 cm, 100 cm, 150 cm or 200 cm and also in three depths: 5 cm, 10 cm and 15 cm, so many different fillings fit inside. We are happy to implement special dimensions for you.

Bamboo infill – suitable combination with corten steel
A huge advantage of bamboo as grass becomes apparent in combination with Corten steel: In contrast to wood, the cane does not turn black when it comes into contact with the rusty steel. This makes it particularly suitable for installation in our WANDA VARIO privacy screen walls.
Bamboo is a natural product that varies in colour, structure, growth form and size and reacts to changing ambient temperatures and humidity. This can result in fine cracks or even continuous gaps. This is no reason to complain but a normal occurrence in our European climate! Also important: The tubes become slightly thinner towards the upper end of the stem. This means that small gaps may be visible between the individual bamboo stems. Further properties on colouring, shape, diameter, tearing behaviour and weathering as well as tips on care are provided in our BAMBUS user information.
Metal slats - durable privacy protection
Permanent and seasonally independent privacy protection is provided by our wall with metal slats. Due to the angled slats with a material thickness of 2 mm, the wall still remains permeable. The slatted privacy screen wall is available in Corten steel, stainless steel and colour-coated stainless steel.
Trellis as filling material
If you would like your privacy screen to be a little more open, you can simply weld in a normal steel mat. The construction becomes more advanced if metal bars (steel or stainless steel) with a diameter of ø10 mm are welded into the frame ex works in the desired grid. The trellis can then be planted with shrubs as you like. All climbing plants are suitable for this.
We normally supply our WANDA VARIO privacy screens with extended legs for setting in concrete. For an additional charge, we also offer the walls with mounting feet that can be screwed onto a stable surface such as concrete floors. Another mounting option is fixing to the wall with straps, mounting on one side of the house wall or screwing between stable palisades, pillars or wooden posts.
Structure and assembly
of the WANDA VARIO framed privacy screen
The robust metal frame can be opened at the top edge and the desired infill can be quickly and easily inserted. We deliver the frame ex works with bamboo stalks, with slat filling or trellis. If you want to use a different infill yourself, e.g. made of satinised glass, perforated sheet or other materials, please inform us in advance so we can prepare the appropriate fixing holes.
Significant wind and other forces can act on the privacy screens. For example, an area of approx. 2 m² generates a moment of approx. 1,000 Nm at wind speeds of 100 km/h. Therefore, make absolutely sure that the privacy screen is fixed sufficiently stable.
