While all of us in Cleveland are caught up in Indians Fever, it is exciting for us to realize that one of our NEMA 4 enclosures makes the live experience at many stadiums so much better. It was not too long ago that if you attended a large sporting event, you could forget using your cell phone as the nearby tower would be jammed and reception would be non-existent. For all of us who go through withdrawal at the slightest hiccup in our service, attending a game of any sort became a nightmare. It began to impact attendance but also impacted the efforts of the teams to increase their social media exposure. How could fans tweet their photo to the kiss cam?
Newer stadiums and even older facilities realized that this was unacceptable and so began the process of installing repeaters and enhancers throughout the facility. On one project that we worked on, they were installed under every third seat. However, if you think about what that product will endure, you begin to understand what a hazardous environment might be. Not only, in an outdoor stadium, do they have to withstand high heat, bone chilling cold, rain or snow, but in all facilities, they have to withstand spilled beer, dropped salsa, and other indignities. Further, they could be kicked or bear other impact. Enter our best-selling line of NEMA 4 enclosures, the PN series. Made of sturdy polycarbonate, they can withstand the worst weather, the most challenging liquids, and even the errant fan making it the ideal product for this application.
So when you are at an event, adding your amazing photos to Instagram or tweeting about your once-in-a-lifetime moment, don’t forget that it could be a Bud NEMA 4 enclosure that is giving you the complete experience and keeping you connected.
