The basic purpose of this screen wall was to shield the rooftop units from view. The structure for the screen wall was created using RoofScreen’s patented watertight framing system.
In order for the LED front lighting to provide the desired effect, we used a perforated aluminum panel. Aluminum is used when perforated panels are needed. Steel panels will ultimately rust at each hole since perforation is subsequent to application of the painted finish leaving an unprotected and un-coated edge.
After dark, the final RoofScreen product fundamentally changes the look of the entire structure as well as the surrounding skyline.
We encourage designers and architects to think of our equipment screens not just as necessities, but as fundamental design features of their building projects. Contact us for a conversation about our products, we’re happy to discuss the possibilities of your project.
