Radiation Shields

All MetSpec shields feature a unique double louvered profile design which gives better protection, keeping the interior drier and cleaner for longer. The second key element is the use of black surfaces to remove reflected solar radiation influxes away from the sensor tips.

No matter how careful you have been in your choice of sensors, the choice of a high specification shield is vital. 

This will help to ensure that you maintain measurement accuracy and protect your sensors from blowing precipitation, insect life and debris. Because these factors can seriously impact on the performance of even the most expensive and accurate sensors.

Designed for use at inland and coastal Met Stations, and in all climates. They can be used to house a complete range of instrumentation, whilst ensuring outstanding protection from the heating effects of solar radiation and direct exposure to rain and snow.

MetSpec Instrument Shelters are an established industry standard and are sold to many national meteorological services and industrial customers worldwide. They have proven to be exceptionally durable over many years, and are in daily use in many countries with extreme and varied climates. Their innovative design features a durable white powder-coated frame and robust outer louvers which are resistant to UV radiation and chemical attack. The design of the shelters feature a white outer reflective surface, combined with an inner barrier of non-reflective, black louvers. This prevents sunlight and reflected radiation from reaching the sensors or thermometers, whilst still allowing air to flow across them. Intercomparison trials have confirmed that errors under adverse conditions are significantly less than inside the old wooden Stevenson Screens.

  • Double louvred high impact thermoplastic louvres
  • White external layer, with UV stabiliser for long-term weather resistance
  • Extra black internal layer
  • Aluminium frame with durable white powder coating
  • A4 grade (316), stainless steel bolts used throughout
  • High impact UV stable rooves and floors
