MarketAir introduces SnowShield, a lightweight, easy-to-install mini-split condenser canopy/shelter for protection against snow, icicles, falling debris and year-round direct sunlight for the U.S. market. It features an inverted U-shape with the top panel constructed of sturdy corrosion-resistant, vinyl-covered aircraft-grade aluminum. Its design allows full airflow while protecting the condenser from up to at least 350 lb. of snow and ice, and doubles as a summertime heat and ultraviolet sun shade. The aesthetic, functional design comes in black, grey or tan.
It fits over all mini-split brands and mounts to all condenser wall brackets, support stands or pads. It’s available in three sizes: HPS-1 for 9,000 to 15,000 Btu/hr. condensers with a maximum size of 26” (h) x 34” (w) x 18” (d); HPS-2 for 18,000 to 24,000 Btu/hr. and maximum condenser size of 34” (h) x 38” (w) x 18” (d); and the HPS-3 for 30,000 to 60,000 Btu/hr. and maximum condenser size of 56” (h) x 38” (w) x 18-“ (d). The shelter is collapsible and ships in compact, easy handling, stackable, 8”-deep cardboard cartons that include stainless-steel mounting hardware and detailed instructions.
