PANELOK® Screen Hold-Down System

Conn-Weld’s time-saving PANELOK® Screen Hold Down System is easy to install and easier to maintain. PANELOK® side hold downs are manufactured from an extremely abrasive resistant material and are designed to replace existing wooden hold downs without side plate modification.

Each PANELOK® dam is fitted with highly durable foam rubber to securely seal all screen seams to prevent misplaced materials. The unique, self-protective PANELOK® design prevents wear on critical locking members and on the screen support channels. Once installed, the pin-mounted center retainers do not have to be removed from the support channels to replace the screen panels. This, along with self-protective design of the PANELOK® system, ensures long retainer and support channel life. PANELOK® is designed to use existing bucker bars and standard bucker rubber. This reduces the cost of field retrofitting an existing support frame.


  • PANELOK® dams are the same width as the screen panels to simplify installation and to reduce the number of parts that must be removed to replace individual screen panels.
  • Each PANELOK® is clamped tightly against the screen surface by a dam retainer which doubles as a screen clamping lock strip.
  • Each PANELOK® replacement screen is supplied complete with new locking edges to ensure that the new screens will be held securely in place.
  • The patented PANELOK® profile screens are built according to the same industry-leading standards that you have come to expect from all of your Conn-Weld screen products.
  • No nuts, bolts, steel dams, or steel hold-down bars in material flow to wear out.
  • Highly durable polyurethane components that lock all of your screens and dams securely in place
  • Reduces profile screen deck replacement time by 50% or more
  • Readily adaptable to most vibrating screen decks

If you are looking for ways to reduce your maintenance costs, look to Conn -Weld for the latest in time-saving innovations.

Chart for Determining Open Areas

Open Areas (All figures are presented in percentages of open area)


If you desire 1/2mm opening with C 3/32 wire, the chart will show you that this would be 18.2% open area. To determine this percentage, read down the Conn-Weld column at left to 1/2mm. (or .020 inches) then read straight across to the “C” profile section under “A” dimension for 3/32.
