Hi, this is Tracy Switzer, President of Shelter Works. And today I’m going to answer the question, “Are our fiberglass buildings RF transparent?”
Indeed, they are. I’m standing before an RF transparent building we just made for an airport application. So not only does it have to be strong enough to withstand jet wash from the planes taking off and landing nearby, it also has to be frangible, which means if a plane crashes into it, it has to destruct (instead of damaging the plane). But it also has to be radio frequency transparent. As you can see, it’s gel coated in orange and white checkerboard pattern (that’s regulation). But there’s something else going on here with these two panels.
