American Fence Company of Norfolk is proud to offer PalmSHIELD’s newest product line to our customers. Their new product is called Element screening, and it breaks your screening down to its most basic elements: rails, posts and planks. PalmSHIELD’s Element screening is idea for architectural screening enclosures with changing elevations or tight budgets. Installers can quickly and precisely field determine post spacings and heights for these screens. PalmSHIELD’s Element screening provides a basic approach to building mechanical equipment screening with a very professional and sleek final look.
Element screening’s custom posts are extruded with slots that extend both in and out of the post. This sensible design creates a strong structural shape that can hold strong against powerful winds. These post slots are also used for supporting and installing Element’s horizontal infill planks. Element’s posts are powder coated to complement your building as well as your chosen infill option. Post spacing can be adjusting in the field by simply trimming the rails and infill.
Element screening uses a version of PalmSHIELD’s famous picture frame design. The frame of each panels consists of an aluminum top and bottom rail. The top rail is T-shaped to provide both protection and a unique finish while the bottom rail consists of a clean 1” x 3” rectangular profile. Element’s framework is powder coated to any color you would like, so you can easily complement the exterior of your property as well as your infill. All of Element’s rails can be trimmed down to align with your post spacing.
PalmSHIELD provides a wide selection of infill options for its Element screening systems, including composite, vinyl and aluminum horizontal planks. PalmSHIELD offers their Element screening systems in a private and semi-private view. Element’s solid privacy screening style is created using tongue and groove planks that add additional strength by joining the planks together. PalmSHIELD offers a large variety of color options for both composite and vinyl Element infills. The aluminum planks can be powder coated to any color, and can be used to match or contrast the framework. All of the infill options can be cut down to fit your post spacing.
