American Fence Company of Iowa City 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’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 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, 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.
