PalmSHIELD has just released a new product, and American Fence Company can’t wait to tell you about it. This new product called Element screening breaks your screening down to its most basic elements: posts, rails and planks. Element screening is the ideal option for large enclosures with varying elevations or budgets with little wiggle room. It allows the installer to quickly and accurately field determine post spacings and heights. Element provides a basic approach to building screening with a very professional and sleek installation.
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 fully framed design. Each panel is framed-out with an aluminum top and bottom member. The bottom is rail is a clean 1” x 3” rectangular profile while the top rail is a structural T-shape to provide both a unique finish and protection. Element’s framework will be powder coated to complement the infill option and match your color selection. All of Element’s rails may be trimmed to work with varied post spacing. The bottom rail may be field adjustable based on your terrain.
PalmSHIELD provides a wide selection of infill options for its Element screening systems. Aluminum, vinyl and composite horizontal planks can be used for a semi-private or private view. All the Element solid privacy screening is created using tongue and groove profiles that add additional strength by joining the planks together. PalmSHIELD offers a wide range of color options for both their vinyl and composite infill options. 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.
