Privacy Beams for Open Joint Designs

Longboard Privacy Beams can be used as stand-alone screening members and can be mechanically fastened to any building structure. Alternatively the beams can also be used within the Longboard Privacy Screen System which is available in a floating or an end-frame configuration. Privacy Beam profiles are available in 1″x 5″ or 1″x 3″ dimensions with thickenings in the side wall to allow for mechanical fastening and come in a wide variety of wood grain, solid color, and specialty finish options. The beams are designed to accept matching Longboard end caps where needed to create a premium finished look. 

The Longboard Privacy Screen System can be used as an open joint cladding rainscreen when installed in a floating configuration. The system uses single posts that are designed to be installed behind the beams anchoring the system to the sub- structure providing a continuous and seamless look. Spacing for the floating system is created with mounting brackets and spacer bars.
