What is the Raptor Radome? If it sounds like a key component for a tactical stealth fighter, you’re not far off. But for the tower industry, it brings a life changing meaning.
Allfasteners developed the Raptor Radome system as a long-needed replacement for existing concealment panels on monopoles. While in concept concealing the radios and antennas on a pole makes sense, the regular maintenance required to install and remove loose bolts, straps, and buckles, as well as handling panels at heights can be a cumbersome process. Hardware is easily damaged and can go missing, and that’s where the real problem starts.
Most traditional panels have nylon bolts on the vertical seam, and the contractor accessing the system is responsible for returning each item to as it was originally installed. Inevitably, these nylon bolts are left out, or are broken or lost. The panel becomes a windsock, leaving it vulnerable to the elements.
After discovering that a major towerco was struggling with panels blowing off or coming loose in the weather, Allfasteners went back to the drawing board, and The Raptor Radome was born.
After a successful prototype, a patent pending and seven completed site executions from its development stage, The Raptor Radome, fabricated in the United States from stealthy RF friendly materials, provides a unique set of features and benefits.
- Allows for 360-degree simultaneous access just by opening the doors.
- No loose hardware to be lost or damaged in the field.
- Safe and easy access from a manlift without additional equipment.
- Tested to be used with the doors open in wind speeds up to 30mph
- Best yet, the system is designed to work with existing bulkheads and structural spines on existing poles, so that it can be retrofitted to almost any monopole in the field.
- Satisfies any carrier requirements for closing up a pole after the day’s work.
- UV stabilized for protection against degradation from UV light.
