Applications of Thermoformed Outdoor Plastic Housings:

Listed below are some examples of custom plastic outdoor enclosures that Universal Plastics has manufactured:

  • Mosquito control housing – A number of years ago a small group of scientists needed assistance translating a new discovery of mosquito population control into a commercial product. After several years of development and prototyping in conjunction with Universal Plastics, the product was born. And with it was born an industry that today sells portable mosquito control devices all over the world and saves many lives. Universal Plastics ability to thermoform the custom plastic outdoor enclosure was a key to launching this product.
  • Thermoformed sled – Universal Plastics improved on an old chassis design by upgrading the material to TPO in a bright yellow color, which greatly improved the durability and appearance over the earlier generation HDPE sled. It also reduced the product weight for improved performance. This is another example of how Universal Plastics can help you improve the design of your plastic outdoor housing product.
