impact resistant box

Post by hedgerowpete » Sun Jan 20, 2019 4:02 pm

i need to make a box.
Its to house a burglar alarm box in it, it will be seen as its in a garage and therefore attacked to silence it.

i was thinking side made from plywood and the top cover made with perspex to allow the light from the controller through it and plastic is also better at rf transmission than say metal security cage

i have used a gas wall flue cage before now but that can easily bypassed with a steel bar jabbed through it.

what do you suggest

box size is 400mm wide 300 mm high and 100mm deep and must be able to allow IR light and RF signals through it. its also in a garage where it will be on full show, but not easily accessed

Remove one blanking plate and replace with lexan?
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine
