Wind Shields

Wind shield cladding systems are designed to protect personnel and equipment against the effects of radiant heat and adverse arctic conditions with high wind speeds and consequent chill factors.

Windshield cladding systems can achieve an immediate percentage reduction in incident wind velocity in excess of 75%. The energy dissipating design of the system means that half a metre behind the panel the percentage reduction in wind velocity increases to 86%.

Panels are available with various single skin perforation patterns or in a double skin arrangement to suit a project's required performance. The panels corrugated geometry is carefully selected to enhance its spanning capacity without detriment to its performance.

MTE provides a full turnkey package for the ventilated cladding system from survey, design, manufacture, delivery and installation.
