Walton De-Ice's Snow Shield - Passive or HeatedThe Snow Shield Cover is designed for antennas in size from 0.6 meters to 6.3-meters in diameter. The Snow Shield consists of coated material, which is virtually invisible to RF, stretched over the satellite antenna. The Snow Shield can be used as a passive, Ice Quake, or heat system that can be added for a higher level of protection.

Walton’s Snow Shield antenna covers now come in three varieties – giving you better performance at lower system cost. Choose from a variety of options based on your performance, operational and budget requirements.

Unlike competing products that need to be removed during warmer weather to increase their useful life according to manufacturers suggestions, Walton Snow Shield architectural fabric with either a Kynar® or Tedlar® coating give you many years of service without the need to remove the Snow Shield Covers during warmer months.

Compare the costs and downtime of having to replace your antenna cover several times over a 10-year period using our competitor’s models with the price and performance advantages of a Walton De-Ice solution. With Walton De-Ice Snow Shield covers, an installed Kynar® or Tedlar® Snow Shield Cover will function from 10 to 15 years. Our top-of-the-line PTFE coated fabrics offer a usable life of 20 plus years.

Walton Snow Shield covers can be used as passive or actively heated covers, and used in combination with our electric or gas heaters. Snow Shield covers offer up to five times the useful life of competing products on top of all the other advantages.

Only Walton offers you the powerful combination of a combined antenna cover and active heating – thanks to our patents in this area. In addition, with our Ice Quake product patents, only Walton offers you the ability to add vibration to your antenna cover to vibrate off ice and snow.

Upgrade your Snow Shield and add an electric heater or gas heater or Ice Quake System, either at the time of purchase, or at a later date without having to remove the Snow Shield from your antenna.
