Vertical Seclusion: Vertical Louvers with the Highest Level of Privacy
Everyone at PalmSHIELD is excited to announce the launch of Vertical Seclusion, their brand new vertical louver fence and screening system. Vertical louvers are popular for matching existing rooftop equipment screening designs and mechanical enclosures. PalmSHIELD recognizes that most buildings’ roof panels and eaves have a vertical alignment in panel ribbing or ridges. Where the louvered screening aligns closely to eaves and roofing; designers want to continue its pattern for a uniform, consistent look.
Traditional single profile louvers don’t provide the consistent screening necessary in a vertical format, creating a bit of a challenge for the engineers at PalmSHIELD. As one passes from left to right in front of the louvered screen or fence, they would go from full visibility to practically no visibility. Traditional horizontal louver set-ups do not encounter this issue as the louvers are rotated to a specific angle that provides necessary screening at a standard line of sight.
PalmSHIELD overcame this challenge by utilizing a double profile vertical louver design. At any angle, this style has complete coverage yet still maintains great air flow. On request, the louvers may be adjusted to establish some visibility and allow light to pass or increase air flow on request.
The other challenge with this design PalmSHIELD had to overcome was the use of supporting braces. Due to the fact that the louvers are vertically placed with this product, the supporting braces would have to be horizontal, which would clash with the overall vertical appeal. To negate the use of a supporting brace, PalmSHIELD chose a vertical louver with significant structural integrity to be used on standard height panels.
Vertical Seclusion is available in our traditional aluminum louvers and in a galvanized steel louver design. Both of these vertical louver designs can be powder coated to match your specific color choice.
