IP Enclosures provide sun shields in Steel and Grade 316 Stainless Steel to suit all sizes of electrical enclosures and cabinets.
Features and Benefits
Sun shields (solar shields) are fitted to external surfaces to assist in controlling the internal temperature of the electrical enclosure or electrical cabinet. Generally, the temperature range of the electrical enclosure must maintain an internal temperature below the operating temperature range of internal components. Unless specified otherwise, it is desirable to maintain an internal temperature (TI) below 50°C.
Materials and Fabrication of Sun Shields
Sun shields are fabricated using precision automated manufacturing equipment to ensure accuracy and consistent high quality. Steel sun shields are fabricated using 1.2mm – 1.5mm galvanised steel sheet. UL approved epoxy polyester powder-coated with a textured RAL7035 finish to 80-120 micron average thickness. Coloured sun shields are available if required. Stainless Steel sun shields are fabricated using 1.5mm Grade 316/316L Stainless Steel.
