PalmSHIELD has just released a new product, and American Fence Company of Sioux Falls is proud to offer it to our customers. This new product is called Element screening, and it breaks your screening down to its most basic elements: planks, posts and rails. Element screening is perfect for large enclosures with varying elevations or strict budgets. It allows the installer to quickly and accurately field determine post spacings and heights. PalmSHIELD’s Element screening provides a basic approach to building architectural screening with a very professional and sleek installation.
Element’s custom extruded posts make all the difference. These posts are extruded with slots that extend both in and out of the post. This well-thought-out design creates a unique structural shape capable of withstanding high winds. These slots also serve as the means for installing and supporting your horizontal planks. Element’s posts will be powder coated to complement the infill option and match your color selection. Post spacing is flexible by simply trimming the rails and infill to match.
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.
Element’s infill options are endless. Vinyl, composite and aluminum horizontal planks forming both a solid or semi-privacy view. All the solid privacy screening is constructed from tongue and groove profiles that add additional strength, joining the planks together. PalmSHIELD offers a wide range of color options for the vinyl and composite profiles. The aluminum planks can be powder coated to match or contrast the framework. All of the infill options may be custom cut to fit your post spacing.
