Privacy Beams are one-piece tubes that come in sizes 1x3 or 1x5. They require components or brackets for installation.
Link & Lock™ is a two-piece batten that snaps together. It comes in the sizes 1 5/8" x 2", 1 5/8" x 4", 1 5/8" x 6", 1 5/8" x 8". You would fasten directly through one of the L-shapes then snap the other end on.

We do not accept rush orders. All orders are produced as quickly as possible.
Due to the custom nature of our product, we do not accept returns.
No, everything is made to order. We do, however, stock our touch-up pens and quick screen clips.
Yes, the install rules apply the same in either vertical or horizontal, using our quick screen clips at either 16″ or 32″ on center. You then have the option of starting on one end and working to the opposite end, or starting at the center and using our back-to-back starter strip and then installing outward.
In some cases, because our quick screen clips provide a narrow ventilation and drainage path, Longboard has been installed directly to the building substrate. However, we always recommend using ½” furring strips. Always contact your local building authority and consult with your building envelope engineer.
We offer touch up pens to fix those areas. Please contact us to order.
