Professional Appearance

PalmSHIELD louvered screens are custom fabricated to each application, allowing end users to select, column locations, varied panel heights and widths and custom applications. These installations are frequently used to obscure HVACs, generators, and other essential items that hamper a building’s appearance. Our system has its own independent structure that classifies it as a standalone mechanical screen fencing equipment solution. It’s this independent structure that carries the load of assuring the overall system meets the latest IBC and UBC codes.

Architectural Louvers

PalmSHIELD louvered mechanical screen fencing equipment is the industry leader in providing maximum air flow while still providing a 100% direct visual screen. PalmSHIELD is the only louvered architectural screen fencing and wall manufacturer providing a structural picture frame design to fully enclose each panel for your rooftop screen or mechanical equipment screen. This allows our louvered panels great flexibility in spanning considerable widths and heights. PalmSHIELD louver’s aesthetic appeal is its contemporary and modern finish. Our panel and column combination is sleek and robust.


PalmSHIELD‘s architectural semi-private screen fencing is a great mechanical screen fencing equipment option that offers both privacy and ventilation for ground screens, enclosures & gates for HVAC systems, dumpsters, mechanical equipment & more. The aluminum frame and aluminum, vinyl or composite horizontal planks offer a contemporary and industrial finish matching today’s contemporary styles. 

Privacy & Ventilation

The semi-private pattern with a two-inch standard air space and five-inch-wide planks offers a solution when you want a screen or fence that complements your building’s exterior finishes but allows for airflow and breaks-up the overall appearance. . All of our semi-private mechanical equipment screen systems include the option to add swing and slide gates. What makes our semi-private composite screening so appealing is it is available in a wide array of colors too.

Upscale Solutions

PalmSHIELD’s architectural solid screen fencing is unlike any other screen or fencing product. Our panels provide a substantial presence and professional appearance, complementing your building’s or roof’s exterior finishes. All of our screen walls include the option for matching swing and slide gates.


PalmSHIELD architectural solid screen fencing is fully fabricated.  It consists of full fabricated structural framed panels and individual columns. Incorporating our popular picture frame design, our panels are fabricated using proven structural aluminum profiles for the picture frame that supports the tongue and groove planks on all four sides. Everything is extruded to fit together using only on-site mechanical means to assemble.  All aluminum components are media blasted and powdered coated. All gates are fully assembled.

Staggered screening

Looking for something with ventilation and light, but still need 100% visual blockage, staggered screen fencing is your best choice. Each blank is offset from one another in a stitching type pattern.  Our Mercury Staggered architectural screen fencing and wall series combines alternating aluminum, vinyl and composite planks placed horizontally between aluminum and vinyl posts.  This shadow box architectural screen fencing and wall design is field installed and provides for flexibility.

Alternating rooftop screen fencing providing a formidable appearance with large tubular louvers running vertically or horizontally in a shadow box pattern.

Modern Security Solution

Our gates are custom designed and engineered to your exact opening specifications. We apply a series of engineering principles, accounting for the effects of the cantilevered load and wind load. No need to worry about future failed or sagging gates with our fully welded tubular framework and cable truss design on larger gates. PalmSHIELD has successfully built thousands of gates over the last thirty years.

High Traffic Security

Pedestrian industrial swing gates are available with a wide variety of options. These gates are a great addition to a high security or high traffic installation that requires a standalone pedestrian access. All of our industrial pedestrian gates are manufactured from square aluminum profiles and come with a wide array of infill options. Our industrial pedestrian gates come with or without a welded jamb. Incorporating a welded jamb better supports panic hardware, keyable door locks and automatic closures.

industrial Gates

Heavy Duty

Industrial gates are indispensable assets in the world of industrial and commercial security. Their ability to enhance security, optimize space, and adapt to various applications makes them a valuable investment for any business or facility. PalmSHIELD can ensure that your industrial gate serves as a robust and reliable guardian of your premises, contributing to a safer and more efficient environment.

Meeting Community Standards

Based on industry waste management standards and working with architects for the last twenty years, we have designed a series of standard enclosures for dumpster containment. Fortunately, the waste management industry has standardized their commercial dumpsters. Based on these standard dumpsters, PalmSHIELD has provided standard enclosures for single, double and triple dumpsters.

dumpster enclosures

PalmSHIELD’s architectural solid screen walls and louvered enclosures are designed to contribute to your overall property’s appearance. Keep up property aesthetic by covering dumpsters and making them inaccessible to the public. Retail, commercial, or multi-family residential, your facility will require trash disposal. That means one or several on-site dumpsters. Typical fencing will not do. Your dumpster enclosure should be constructed of fence screens that complement your facilities envelope. PalmSHIELD’s dumpster enclosures are pre-engineered to meet waste management standards and to complement your building’s finishes.


PalmSHIELD cable systems are designed to be accompanied with code compliant stair grab rails.  All of our sections are custom fabricated. PalmSHIELD uses a rigid, thin cable stabilizer bar in the panels to support the long cable runs.  At changes in slope, a stabilizer bar will support the cables without the use of additional posts. Fewer posts leaves more to be desired as you look beyond the cable rail system.

Slim & Discreet

We know a thing or two about cable railing. Specifically, many installations fail over time to maintain proper tension.  Imagine eleven cables, each tensioned to several hundreds of pounds of pull, pulling on one two inch square post screwed down to the top of a soft cedar deck board or stair plank.  System failure!  To prevent this mishap, PalmSHIELD uses their unique and proven fully framed panel design.  With fully framed panels, the tension is transferred to the frame and not to your deck or stairs.

Extraordinarily Flexible

Our fully framed panel system allows our rooftop screen fencing great flexibility in spanning considerable widths and heights. All of our fully framed panels can be used with our rooftop mounting system or with any owner furnished structural framework, allowing for a variety of style, airflow, and level of visual screening options.   PalmSHIELD provides a width option of mounting brackets or will custom design mounts for your structural framing.


PalmSHIELD’s line of fully framed products are a popular choice for rooftop screen fencing. Because PalmSHIELD is the only architectural screen fencing and wall manufacturer providing a structural picture frame design to fully enclose each panel; we are the number one choice for rooftop mechanical screen fencing equipment. Many buildings feature RTUs (Rooftop Units) essential to keeping buildings in order. These items, however, tend to diminish curb appeal, so many property managers obscure them with our mechanical RTU screen solution!



PalmSHIELD has exactly what you need to provide that finished professional look. PalmSHIELD offers shims in two styles to be installed individually or in combination.


PalmSHIELD incorporates the Locinox FortyLock mortise lock into all of our gates with lockable drop rods.
