Privcy slats for chain link fences

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

Privcy slats for chain link fences

Postby Andaiz » Mon Oct 31, 2011 5:56 pm

Need some advice/pointers here.

We live in a "kampung" - sometimes it feels that way when the helpers shout out to one another - where the backyards are separated by chainlink fences. What makes it worse is that the backyard is back-to-back with the next lane i.e., I have effectively 5 other neigbours that are connected.

My neighbour on the right has recently put in some bamboo dividers on top of the chain-link fence.

Does anyone know where to get the privacy slate for chain link fences (see picture below)?

There is a very irritating maid who jabbers non-stop with my previous maid and she's really very bad influence. Works for a European couple who rents the place; and the entire maid community knows that she sneaks out when the baby is asleep.

Thanks, veryKS2010. The bamboo chicks do not withstand wear and tear very well leh. Especially with the rainy season.... :scratchhead:

I remember many years back my company engaged some outside party to put the green strips through the wire fence. Not cheap. It's very tedious manual work. Sorry, left that company long time liao so cannot share which contractor that was.
