Fiberglass Switch Cover Systems2021-05-10T09:13:25-05:00

Fiberglass switch covers, side covers and swing nose frog covers aid in keeping the switch clear by not allowing snow and ice to enter the switch, and also by keeping heat in the switch area. Our switch covers are designed to be installed or taken out in the least amount of time ensuring track time for these operations is kept to a minimum. The enhanced design enables continuous flow of heated air down side covers to be more effective in protecting your equipment.
