Special Configurations qualities can be harnessed for a wide variety of unique applications.
Our SHEERGARD® Composite Solutions engineers are your go-to experts for customized radome configurations. Think in-house engineering, finite element analysis, 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, RF testing, and in-house manufacturing.
With mechanical, structural, and electrical engineers on hand, we create one-of-a-kind, tailor-made composite, and fabric structures – like the toroidal radome at the CN Tower and hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped shipboard applications. SHEERGARD® provides excellent RF performance, environmental protection and durability that have been harnessed for a wide range of unique applications worldwide.
Spherical radomes are the most popular SHEERGARD concept, but this versatile material can be adapted for many unique applications, including shipboard hybrid radomes that combine single or dual wall radomes, engineered transportable radomes which can be set up on practically any type of terrain and seamless membranes for multiple antenna towers. Our involvement can be as high-level or hands-on as you require – from only providing technical expertise for our manufacturing floor to a fully integrated project from concept ideation to design, delivery, site inspection and sign-off. Our engineering teams cover structural, RF, application testing, field services and installation.
Saint-Gobain Composite Solutions is a long-trusted partner for creating highly specialized, technology-driven material solutions that deliver extraordinary performance across a spectrum of demanding settings. Through collaboration with our customers, we co-develop versatile materials and real application tests to ensure that you have the best possible solution for your application. We help create innovative materials that provide protection, easy release, insulation, and friction control. And we seek to collaborate in making it even more possible.
Rigorous testing standards
Saint-Gobain Composite Solutions rigorously tests all SHEERGARD® radome products via software-modeled analytics, lab-scale material characterization, and most importantly, directly relevant application testing. Every SHEERGARD® radome complies with strict MIL.STD.810 testing – the military-leading standard for all environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, salt, fungus, and many more. Software modeling such as Finite Element Analysis and Thermal Analysis can yield information on deflections, factors of safety, and thermal management requirements. Application tests such as physical hail storm testing, destructive fabric testing, and real-life application exposure reveal key learnings in creating a truly optimized product. Our testing begins during the co-development process to develop relevant tests and gather data that allows us to create market-ready solutions quickly.
