W. B. Walton Enterprises, Inc. (Walton De-Ice) is announcing a new fabric for use in making the Snow Shield Covers. David Walton stated, “We are very excited with the results that we have seen so far in both C-and Ku-band with the new fabric.
“The mechanical characteristics and Rf transparency is almost the same as the PTFE (Gore-Tex) fabric that we have been using since coming out with the Snow Shield Cover 18 years ago.
“The quality of the fabric is far superior to any of our competitor’s fabrics and will be roughly half the price of the PTFE (Gore-Tex) Snow Shield Cover. With the new fabric, we will still be able to offer it as a passive system or utilize both Electric and Gas Heater De-Icing Systems along with the Ice Quake De-Icing System.
“The next step is to do testing at Ka-band with the new fabric. We will be adding this new fabric to our line up of Snow Shield Covers/De-Icing System solutions to continue to give our customer’s choices for their de-icing system requirements.”
With over 32 years of experience in battling the elements, Walton De-Ice continues to expand its product line to give the customer even more options to keep their VSAT and Large Satellite Earth Station Antennas operational during the harshest of environmental conditions.
Walton will be exhibiting at IBC. They will be in Hall 1 booth number A62.
