SHEERGARD Ship Radome

Electromagnetic Windows

Electromagnetic Windows to protect and conceal antennas

With proven reliability and low lifecycle costs, custom-designed SHEERGARD® electromagnetic windows protect and conceal sensitive radar and communication installations. Suitable for sensitive, high-security environments and system compatible for commercial use.

SHEERGARD® electromagnetic windows are virtually transparent to electromagnetic energy in the frequency ranges found in contemporary systems. Easily integrated into existing substructures, design flexibility allows us to partner with you to deliver customized solutions to fit your application.

Product Details

SHEERGARD® electromagnetic windows have several benefits which deliver excellent performance and lifetime value. Custom design engineered by a dedicated team of structural, mechanical and PE licensed engineers, their woven substrate fabric with applied coatings provides high tensile strength and tear resistance. SHEERGARD materials also have a vast temperature range (typically from -60°F (-51°C) to +500°F (260°C)) and are Teflon coated, enabling lifelong hydrophobic performance and ensuring you never need to reapply a surface finish. Unsurpassed RF performance (featuring dielectric constants of less than 2.8) results in minimal energy scattering into the antenna sidelobe and mitigates against cross-polarization and noise temperature. Crucially, Sheergard has faced the most robust environmental testing. It offers environmental protection in even the most extreme conditions (including winds over 210mph (340km/h). It is also resistant to hail, offers low thermal conductivity and good RF performance at high incidence angles (up to 70 degrees) Consequently, these products combine technical excellence with inherent durability.
