The TrippNT acrylic equipment draft shield is a four-sided cube that fits over sensitive laboratory equipment to protect it from air currents and dust. The shield is made of clear acrylic, allowing for observation and manipulation of samples, without compromising measurements. The draft shield is enclosed on three sides and the top for access to samples and controls. A hole in the back allows for power cords, wires, and tubes to pass through. An angled flap at the front of the shield deflects downward drafts away from the open side and the instrument the shield is protecting. The draft shield protects balances, scales, and other sensitive laboratory equipment from air currents and dust that may make the equipment less accurate.
TrippNT manufactures storage products, dispensers, carts, workstations, and shields for scientific laboratory applications. The company, founded in 1993, is headquartered in Kansas City, MO.
