Pepro Provides Radio Site Shelters to the BLM for Use in Upgrading Sites across Wyoming

Pepro LLC, a leading manufacturer of shielded enclosure systems for stationary and mobile applications, has sold 15 enclosures to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  Ten sites are under contract with Northwind Engineering and five sites will be done in house by BLM Communications Group.

The upgrades being conducted throughout the state are mandated by the Radio Infrastructure Compliance Assessment Safety Health Environment (RI CASHE) safety audit. Work will continue into the summer of 2013.

“These radio tower sites provide essential public safety connectivity in remote areas. They need to provide reliable service through all kinds of threats or conditions to maintain communications when they are needed most,” said Kelly Lander, president of Pepro, LLC. “Our patented Faraday Cage technology provides protection against lightning, radio frequency interference and many other threats to signal quality and service continuity.”

In addition to the protection offered against common communications threats, the Pepro shelters are highly flexible in situations where installation can be difficult. The enclosures can eliminate the need for excavation, site testing and other requirements associated with grounding, and the all-inclusive body construction with an attached tower allows sites to be placed in remote or hard to reach sites with ease.

“The RI CASHE audit found that these ten sites contained threats to life and property that needed to be addressed with upgrades. Pepro will provide the shelters for all of the rebuilt sites,” said Stephen Strate, telecommunications manager for the Bureau of Land Management. “Pepro’s enclosures meet all of our standards for safety and are easy for us to use.”

The sites receiving the upgrades include the Rawlins Interagency Fire Dispatch Center Communications Building, Casper Interagency Fire Dispatch Center Communications Building, and the following mountain top sites: Sheep’s Mountain, Laramie Peak, Crooks Mountain, Aspen Mountain, Hogs Back Mountain, Mt. Qualey, Copper Mountain, Black Mountain, Cedar Mountain, Buffalo Hill, Casper Mountain, Mt. Aries and Elk Mountain.

Pepro has provided shielded enclosures based on its patented Faraday cage technology for more than 20 years without a single loss of protected equipment. Every Pepro shelter meets rigorous standards, sustaining a one million volt, 82,000 amp direct strike with less than ten micro joules entering enclosure.
