Fiberglass Panel Shades: Protecting Your Instrument

Protecting sensitive equipment is an essential part of any water management and wastewater business. What many businesses don’t realize, however, is that outdoor instruments and electronics need to be protected just as much. In fact, given that these tools and meters are constantly at the mercy of the elements, they need even more protection. 

The best way to accomplish this is with a panel shade. Learn about the many ways that fiberglass panel shades can protect sensitive meters and other equipment from sun, ice, snow, rain and more. 

Panel Shades vs. Sun Shades

Many people wonder if there’s a difference between a sunshade and a panel shade. There is, but the differences are relatively minor. Panel shades are standard shelters that offer outstanding protection against the elements, no matter what they face. That means they’ll protect against wind, rain, ice, snow, and ultraviolet rays. If you’re just looking to protect your equipment, a panel shade will give you all you need. 

A sunshade, on the other hand, offers all of the protection of a panel shade, but it also reduces glare from sunlight. That means they’re ideal for instruments where you need to take readings, as they’ll be easier to see. If your equipment is already shaded, a sunshade is probably not needed. 

What Does a Panel Shade Do?

Again, panel shades are an extra level of protection against the elements. Many businesses can attest to the nightmare of having sensitive electronics destroyed by inclement weather, from summer heat, spring storms or the ice and snow of winter. A panel shade helps to keep those sensitive instruments and machinery safe, even when they need to be outdoors all the time. 

Why Fiberglass?

You may find that panel shades are made from a wide variety of materials, from wood to plastic and beyond. If you’re looking for the very best material, however, go with fiberglass. After all, your panel shade is supposed to protect your equipment. The last thing you want is to worry about the shade falling apart. Fiberglass is among the toughest materials available today. 

Fiberglass is weather, impact, and stress-resistant product that can stand up against the harshest environmental conditions. When you choose a fiberglass panel sun shade, you’re not only giving your equipment the very best protection, you’re choosing a material that’s low maintenance and will stand up to years of punishment.
