INTERTEC's deep knowledge of outdoor equipment protection embraces shelters for communications equipment in harsh climates and environments. We have designed hundreds of shelters with communications systems; also in remote and difficult locations from deserts to high mountains.
The superb environmental protection characteristics of composite GRP is key for communications technology applications – especially in remote or hazardous environments. The efficiency of INTERTEC's embedded insulation, and our advanced cooling options are then the catalyst to design innovative protection solutions.
INTERTEC's GRP is almost as strong as stainless steel yet much lighter. This can make it easy to mount equipment on urban rooftops for instance or allow deployment by helicopter to ultra-remote locations. A key advantage of GRP over metal is its transparency to radio waves. While metal enclosures encapsulate radio waves so that antenna technology has to be placed outside enclosures, the use of GRP allows everything to remain inside the enclosure - thus protecting it from adverse environmental conditions. This can benefit applications ranging from picocells to wireless mesh networks.
If shielding is required, this can also be realized with GRP. INTERTEC has the appropriate production technologies to provide adequate solutions for this problem as well.
In deserts, exemplary cooling must be provided - sometimes without permanent access to an electricity grid. Sand or dust may preclude use of vented enclosures or conventional through-flow cooling. INTERTEC’s passive and hybrid cooling options - and the ability to include conductive cooling - delivers reliable solutions.
