Protective canopies and sunshades

Protection of instruments, housings and switches against sun, weather and dirt

INTERTEC protective canopies and sunshades made from GRP offer effective protection for your instrumentation. With various designs and sizes, we offer the right solution for every application. By mounting protective covers to your transmitters, you protect your sensitive equipment from environmental influences. The thermally insulating material also ensures that the heat from solar radiation is not transmitted. Due to a variety of brackets, our protective covers and canopies can also be mounted directly on fittings from various manufacturers.

Protection from:

  • Solar radiation (overheating)
  • Weather influences (rain, snow, etc.)
  • Dirt
  • Mechanical damage (e.g. by falling parts).

SD Series Shades

The simplest and most cost-effective design. It offers effective environmental protection combined with optimum free access to the instrument.

Additionally, we offer mounting material for direct mounting on the transmitter housing. Various mounting brackets are available for the respective device types of well-known manufacturers.

SD 18 Sunshade

The SD 18 Sunshade is resistant to the heat generated by direct sunlight and UV radiation. It is particularly space-saving and can be extended horizontally without transitions. The rear side can be used flexibly. On the one hand, fittings and other components can be mounted directly on the rear wall. On the other hand, the SD 18 Sunshade can be mounted to a transmitter with a bracket. This gives the unit additional protection from the side.


DIASHADE™ canopies provide greater coverage, offering maximum protection on the sides as well. The curved shape allows rain and melt water to flow off easily.


Canopies of this series are ideal for protecting larger units. Due to the circumferential upturn and conical design, rain and melt water can easily drain away here. The larger side surfaces offer better protection when the sun is low or during driving rain. Canopies of this series also have increased stability due to reinforced ribs in the rear wall.

SD 17 Switch Protection Canopy

Switch protection canopies of the SD 17 series offer mainly mechanical protection, e.g. for emergency stop switches. They can be protected against accidental impacts or falling objects. The optional front bracket prevents incorrect operation from the front and can be used to attach a label. This cover is also available in RAL3000 flame red.
