Marketair has introduced SnowShield, a lightweight mini-split condenser canopy/shelter for protection against snow, icicles, falling debris, and year-round direct sunlight. SnowShield comprises 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 snow and ice and doubles as a summertime heat and ultraviolet sun shade. The design comes in black, grey, or tan colors.
SnowShield 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 Btuh condensers with a maximum size of 26-in by 34-in by 18-in; HPS-2 for 18,000 to 24,000 Btuh and maximum condenser size of 34-in by 38-in by 18-in; and the HPS-3 for 30,000 to 60,000-Btuh and maximum condenser size of 56in by 38-in by 18-in.
SnowShield features a two-year full warranty, can withstand up to at least 350-pounds of snow accumulation, and withstands all temperature extremes.
