    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.

    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.
