wrought iron fence with cedar slats

I looking to install a 6' wrought iron fence, partly around a pool. I would like to install cedar planks in between the smaller railings and make it more private. I can find what I want to do in pictures, but can not find how to attach them and make the stay. I want them in between the side rails and the top and bottom supports, so there doesn't seem to be a way to "screw" them to keep them from falling out

Ideas on how to make them stay put?

If I can figure out how to post a picture from my phone I would show you the gates that are in Arizona everywhere that I am about to replicate here in Texas

I suspect you'd need to attach brackets to the wrought iron to attach the wood to.

your link doesn't show the gate

You can have the fence fabricated with a channel that you slide the cedar planks into. Then a piece can be bolted or welded into place trapping the board so they can't fall out.
