PalmSHIELD and American Fence Company of Minnesota teamed together to provide a new mechanical equipment enclosure for American Family Insurance's new data center. PalmShield has a long history of providing architectural louvers for allot of data centers. You will see our PalmSHIELD louvered systems at Google, Yahoo, Travelers data centers.
PalmSHIELD is the choice for large standalone mechanical louvered screen systems. These data centers generate allot of heat. By keeping them cool will allow the effective operations of all equipment. Most equipment must be protected or screened to maintain a very aesthetic curb appeal for these massive facilities. PalmSHIELD architectural louvers are the only completely fully framed louvered system with tested structural profiles and post. Our louvered systems can stretch great distances while still maintaining the resilience necessary to meet national and local codes for wind loading.
PalmSHIELD systems have been engineered to meet UBC,IBC and local codes. Our louvered panels with an 80% opening has a horizontal load of 19 psf, based on 100 mph winds. This complies with the 30 psf load requirement on solid building surfaces.
PalmSHIELD Louvered systems are the only architectural louvers with an internal locking device. This device provides the ultimate security and is very attractive. We also offer panic door options with an external grade panic hardware.
