PalmSHIELD enthusiastically unveiled their newest addition to the family, Vertical Seclusion! Vertical louver screening and fence systems are prevalent in rooftop equipment screening and for mechanical enclosures, which had existing designs needing to be matched. PalmSHIELD is aware that most roof panels as well as buildings’ eaves possess a vertical alignment in panel ribbing or ridges. In comparison louvered screening pairs perfectly to existing roofing and eaves, which designers want to continue this type of pattern.
As with most building materials, matching existing structures creates its own challenges. The main issue is when trying to use traditional single profile louvers that will not consistently provide the essential screening. If you were to look from left to right directly in front of the louvered screen, you would see that you go from full screen to hardly any. This is not an issue when dealing with traditional horizontal louvers. These louvers are rotated to a particular angle that provides the necessary screening at a regular line of sight.
PalmSHIELD has defeated any issues with insufficient coverage, by utilizing a double profile, vertical louver design. No matter what angle, there is still total coverage, as well as sufficient air flow. The louvers can be adjusted to increase visibility or air flow.
One other issue that PalmSHIELD had to contend with, is the use of supporting braces. Since the braces have to be horizontal for the vertically placed louvers, they would contradict the whole vertical charm. The resolution was selecting a vertical louver with essential strength to exterminate the need for braces.
Vertical seclusion is available in our traditional aluminum louver design, of in a galvanized steel design. Either of these design styles can be powder coated and painted to match any color scheme.
