Louvers

POPULAR | VENTILATED | SECURE

PalmSHIELD louvered screening is the industry leader in providing maximum air flow while still providing 100% direct visual screening. PalmSHIELD is the only louver 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 louvers can be configured as a series of screens, grills, swing gates and even sliding gates. PalmSHIELD louvers is custom fabricated to each application, allowing end users to select, column locations, varied panel heights and widths and custom applications.

PalmSHIELD may be installed as a wall louver, ground or rooftop screen. PalmSHIELD louvers has its own independent structure that classifies it as a standalone louvered equipment screen system. It’s this independent structure that carries the load of assuring the overall system meets the latest IBC and UBC codes.

PalmSHIELD has been designed and engineered to meet these codes. Through several engineering analysis, PalmSHIELD louvers are proven to withstand 120 mph windspeeds and 33 PSF loading. The combination of our structural panel frame and considerable column design provides the best available solution for your screening project.

ATLAS horizontal louvers are unique in providing the industries’ widest louver providing 100% direct visual screening at over 60% openness. Only PalmSHIELD’s ATLAS horizontal louvers use a 3” x 3” x ¼” angle structural picture frame design that allows for a considerable weld length to attach each louver.

Only ATLAS horizontal louvers use a 2” x 1/8” aluminum flat bar not to exceed 24” apart to support the louvers between the framework. This support prevents distortion under high winds and increased security.

Larger than most systems, PalmSHIELD uses a 4” x 4” x ¼” or 3/8” system post. The larger and thicker walled posts is what provides such considerable wind load engineering. What is especially important to us is the finish an aluminum post provides making a clean transition from post to panel. Posts typically do not exceed sixty inches on center. All nuts, bolts and fasteners are stainless steel.

PalmSHIELD is the only standalone louvered system with unlimited gate heights and widths. You want your screen to equal the appeal of your property. ATLAS complements their screening with professional grade industrial locking systems that will match your building hardware.

PalmSHIELD’s AJAX diagonal louvers provide a real eye-catching and unique appeal for applications such as patios and cafes. AJAX diagonal louvers form a pattern throughout the system that really gets noticed. Panels can be placed parallel to one another or in a mirrored pattern. The infill may be our traditional slanted louvers that don’t allow any light but still maintain that contemporary design. If you are looking to only break things up and allow a little light, you may want to consider our smaller diagonal slates.

All of our AJAX panels use our engineered and proven PalmSHIELD fully framed design. PalmSHIELD uses a proven fully welded frame to support our panel’s infill placed in-between four-inch square posts. All of our PalmSHIELD mechanical equipment screen panels and posts are pre-drilled and shop assembled to assure proper alignment.

ACHILLES vertical louvers are very popular for architectural screen enclosures and rooftop equipment screening when designers and architects want to match an existing design. PalmSHIELD recognizes roof panels and building eaves have a vertical pattern in panel ribbing or ridges. Where the louvered screening aligns closely to roofing and eaves, designers want to continue this pattern for a consistent look.

The challenge with a vertical louver design is that using traditional single profile louvers will not consistently provide the necessary screening. PalmSHIELD has overcome this challenge by using a double profile vertical louver design. At any angle, you have 100% coverage yet still maintain good air flow. The louvers may be adjusted to increase air flow and establish some visibility or to allow light to pass.

Vertical louver designs often span considerable heights. PalmSHIELD’s ACHILLES overcomes this challenge by incorporating a significant structural louver design thus eliminating the need for a horizontal braces that break-up the appeal of long vertical lines.
