PalmSHIELD has just released a new product, and American Fence Company of Des Moines 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 screening’s custom posts are extruded with slots that extend both in and out of the post. This sensible design creates a unique structural shape that can withstand strong winds. These slots are also for installing and supporting your horizontal planks. Element screening’s posts are powder coated to complement your chosen infill option and the exterior of your building. Post spacing can be flexible by simply trimming the rails and infill to match.
Element screening uses a version of PalmSHIELD’s brilliant picture frame design. Each panel is framed-out with an aluminum top and bottom rail. The top rail is a structural T-shape 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 complement the outside of your property as well as your chosen infill option. The bottom rail may be field adjustable based on your terrain. All of Element’s rails can be trimmed to work with your specific post spacing.
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.
