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’s custom posts are extruded with slots that extend both in and out of the post. This well-thought-out design creates a unique structural shape that can hold up against strong winds. These slots also serve as the means for installing and supporting your horizontal planks. Element’s posts are powder coated to complement your chosen infill option. Post spacing is flexible by simply trimming the rails and infill to match.
Element screening uses a version of PalmSHIELD’s popular 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 protection and a unique finish. Element’s framework is powder coated to complement your chosen infill option. 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.
The infill options for PalmSHIELD’S Element screening are endless. Vinyl, composite and aluminum horizontal planks can be used to form either a solid or semi-private 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.
