Saint-Gobain’s worldwide SHEERGARD® radome installation support services cover everything you need for success – whether that’s a sole technical advisor or a full installation crew.
Radome installation can be tricky. Site issues such as high wind speeds (over 20mph), heavy rain, equipment accessibility, and antenna configuration mean each project is uniquely challenging. But Saint Gobain engineers have completed successful installations in tough environmental conditions in vastly varied sites worldwide. No one is better qualified to ensure the process is completed safely and smoothly.
Wherever your SHEERGARD® radome is being installed, a tailored Saint-Gobain installation service is available to ensure that the right decisions are made the first time, every time, and to minimize risk and system downtime. If you only require a technical advisor, they will provide expert guidance on the most safe and most efficient installation methodology. Alternatively, comprehensive support can include a full installation crew and supply of any essential local equipment – with considerable collective capability and experience in logistics, equipment, and methodology. With instant access to engineering staff (if necessary), your installation team will confidently resolve any challenges that emerge as the project progresses. We have worked with all the major independent radome installation teams for 70 years and (unlike most competitors) we install in the rain as there's no need to seal. Because we use a crane to install a fully-assembled radome in one session (rather than a panel at a time), our air-supported radomes can sometimes be installed in as little as 24 hours.
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.
