    Wall-mount Solar Shield protects outdoor enclosures from overheating and provides weather protection from sun, rain and snow. Enclosures are shielded from the top, sides and rear; white powder paint finish maximizes solar heat reduction. Two sets of fully-adjustable mounting channels are provided to mount any type of wall-mount enclosure that fits inside the solar shield. Mounting hardware and step-by-step instructions are included.


  • 14 gauge galvanized steel
  • Adjustable mounting allows various wall-mount enclosures to fit inside the solar shield. Refer to the table below to determine which solar shield fits your enclosure size
  • Fits most Concept, InLine and NEMA Type 4 wall-mount enclosures and junction boxes (i.e. Bulletin A51NF and A51FL)
  • Hardware is included for mounting an enclosure to the solar shield
  • Shielding Effectiveness:

    Hoffman’s research of the effects of solar radiation on enclosures has shown the positive benefits of utilizing shielding to decrease temperature rise. Shielding has been found to be an effective, low-cost method of reducing solar heat gain in outdoor electrical and electronic applications. Recent test results indicate that a wall-mount solar shield provides an approximately 56% reduction in temperature rise due to solar head load.
