Responsible for sending and receiving radio frequency signals, antennas make it possible to track steps for exercise, pinpoint a location, and talk on a cell phone. Safeguard valuable antennae systems from degradation with custom radomes from Chicago Plastic Systems.
A radome is a structural enclosure designed to protect antenna and associated equipment against the detrimental effects of weather. Typical applications include:
Incorporating a radome into an application boosts operational efficiency and availability, since the antennae system is shielded from wind, rain, ice, hail, sand, salt spray, and other weather events. It also improves antennae system performance by blocking winds from distorting the shape and pointing direction of the reflector.
Chicago Plastic Systems is a DVS certified manufacturer of custom plastic products for demanding applications. With various manufacturing capabilities under one roof, we can turnaround custom radomes for your application on time and within budget.
Our area of expertise is manufacturing custom cylinder radomes using your print, specification, or purchase order requirements.
As a one-stop shop, we work with you to develop a concept and make a prototype. Once the design is approved, full-scale production kicks off. Our turnkey radome manufacturing services can benefit clients operating in a variety of industries.
With the continued rollout of 5G communications, safeguarding antennae system infrastructure is increasingly important. Chicago Plastic Systems is trusted by telecommunications companies and their supply chain partners to produce 5G antenna radomes for their applications.
When it comes to shielding valuable equipment from the elements, the materials being used are critical. A wrong choice for a specific operating environment may lead to subpar performance or, worse, premature failure. Chicago Plastic Systems has access to a range of high-performance plastics, including uv resistant materials. As a result, we can easily acquire materials with optimal performance attributes that don’t interfere with the antenna’s signal and turn them into a finished radome. Typical materials we use include:
Each type of plastic has unique characteristics. Chicago Plastic Systems has you covered if you’re unsure which material is right for your radome application. Our experts can help you select the best material for your use-case.
Without radomes, modern communication would be a lot different. Better protect your antennae system and related equipment with support from Chicago Plastic Systems.
