Metspec solar radiation shields
« on: June 05, 2021, 04:21:18 PM »
As I have already anticipated in another post, I can confirm the agreement with this important professional company, specialized for many years in the production of high-level solar screens, commonly used in the professional field and which you can see resold by the most important names in the sector.

The models that I found most interesting are the Rad02 and the Rad14

The first is characterized by the considerable internal dimensions, able to accept almost any type of sensor, the other, the Rad14, is expressly designed for probes of modest size and professional sensors, obviously, its performances are usually better than the Rad02

These solar radiation shields are usually sold by high-end names, with quite high prices.

The direct agreement with the manufacturer provides for the following prices for wxforum users, valid until 31/12/2021 and to which you need to add VAT,  shipping costs and, if the order is outside the UK, any duties and customs clearance costs.

Rad02 - euro 86.00
Rad14 - euro 92.00

To order send an email to
mauro.serenello@meteonetwork.it

Use the same email you will use to keep in touch with Metspec, it will be my responsibility to introduce you to the company for confirmation, from then on you will directly manage the whole procedure.

For images, measurements etc

Rad02

Unfortunately, I have to report that the agreements with Metspec are ending.
The constant delays, the lack of communication are the basis of this choice, I contacted the company today and spoke at length with the owner who admitted that he did not have sufficient potential to devote himself with the necessary care to the amateur sector, albeit at a high level.

I apologize, although I have no faults in this regard, but it was a necessary choice

The MetSpec RAD02 is still in production, though their stock is lower than that of RAD14. I know the message is from ages ago, but thought I'd reply in case you are still interested! :)

strange that they do more RAD-14 than RAD-02, the RAD-02 is much better than the RAD-14 more inside it is more capacious, you can put everything in it, mysteries

It is indeed! I've been told by the company itself that the RAD-14 is better than RAD-02 so I've gone with RAD-14. Despite having read through the forum (and as you mentioned) that RAD-02 is the preference, am sure RAD-14 will still perform really well. Will have the WH32_EP in it.

yes I have both of them in my weather observatory, of course it will be fine, it has excellent performance, especially if you put the wh32 ep in it, the rad 02 is a little better, let's talk about tenths, in the most critical days,

Love the look to it a lot! Can I ask how far up you've put the sensor?

I have tried to work with them because their instrument shelters and radiation shields interest me. I have tried to communicate with them and to this point have not ordered. Their shields are black on inside. I paint my Instrument shelter and radiation shields black inside.,It does reduce solar radiation. Am very interested in their products. I also have a really old aspirated shield from NovaLynx and one from Metone. Both have cabled items inside. Also have a Tempest and Atlas. Also Cspe Cod wind and barometer and temp. Also Temp tracker  and wind tracker. Temptracker is in Metone shield powered from my instrument shelter. Highly accurate.

I continue to receive requests regarding Metspec products from various users to which, I apologize, I am unable to respond.
Metspec, for several months now, no longer responds to requests from users or from myself, seeing myself forced to cancel any form of collaboration due to serious shortcomings on the part of the Company.
It is not possible to maintain a collaboration relationship in these conditions and in the total lack of respect towards users.

So sorry to hear this, I know you invested a lot of time in this relationship

Seems very shortsighted on their part

I'm very sorry too, and believe me, I tried in every way to put up with the lack of communication, apologizing to users, taking time, etc
For reasons of obvious confidentiality, I cannot post the contents of communications with their contact person on WhatsApp, with continuous silence, for weeks, or months, alternating with sudden moments of great communication, messages of friendship, esteem, and desire to collaborate
other moments were dictated by alleged health problems of the owner, I waited, I wrote dozens of times worrying about his health, etc, but now, perhaps due to age, I am tired of feeling teased and I cannot afford to have the same attitude towards a user who, perhaps with great sacrifices, seeks to improve his weather instruments set up.

I wish someone would try to take a shot, but I warn him right now, will not be easy ;)

I had a similar experience - at some point in time the contact collapsed (due to health issues at their end), was re-established and then shortly after stopped completely - no emails answered, no phone calls picked up - may still be a continuing health issue, but nothing one can recommend for getting something ordered.

I sort of luckily managed to get a MetSpec Rad02 after a few attempts, but that was already 13 months ago.

Yes, it's a real shame because their products are absolutely valid and in Italy we tested their RADs in different locations comparing them to solar radiation shields of absolute value with excellent results.
now, I want to think, and hope that the health problems, which have affected communications in a fluctuating way, have not resulted in something more serious or that there are problems of a commercial nature for the company.

I have had countless requests that I have not been able to satisfy and this has led to my decision to stop, at least for the moment, any relationship.

Good morning,

I'm Belgian and I live in Portugal, some of you know me (the Italians and the French-Italian).  :grin:
I am organising a purchase of Metspec Rad02 and Rad14.
I have an agreement with Metspec for 4 shelters per order in order to minimize the CEE import and transport costs.
The Rad 02 146 VAT included
The Rad 14 142 VAT included
To this you have to add the shipping costs from Portugal to your country.
I only order from Metspec in sets of 4 shelters, I don't want to have a collection of Metspec on my desk. So a firm and definite commitment is necessary.
I think you can understand, I pay when I order and I want to be sure to get my money back.
  :-)

I think quite a few forum members will appreciate your initiative.  [tup]
Just to be clear: by "shelter" you mean a complete radiation shield - either a MetSpec Rad 02 or 14.

And - you probably assume that a potential buyer is located inside the EU respectively the EEA (European Economic Area) - [EEC - what you call CEE - doesn't exist anymore].
Otherwise you'd have to manage an extra EEA export procedure. Somebody living in the UK could buy from MetSpec directly as they are located in the UK.

And the "four 'shelter' agreement" means, that you wait until you have four order commitments (or orders summing up to 4 items/shields), before you order with MetSpec.

I just wanted to make that clear for potential buyers.
(I myself luckily still managed to get me a MetSpec Rad 02 from MetSpec directly some time ago)

And if the many people who have addressed to @mauro63 are still interested, you'll soon have - at least temporarily - quite a few shields "on your desk"  8-) =D>

EDIT: just to add - for someone living in Germany they would have to add around 25 EUR for shipping from Portugal to Germany.
