Does anyone have a recommendation for a clear-topped outdoor enclosure?
My goal is to mount both a small solar panel and a display inside of the enclosure. I bought a few enclosures along these lines on eBay a few years back. These were all plastic, white on 5 sides with a clear, sealed lid attached by 4 screws. The once-clear tops have yellowed horribly out in the sun, to the point that the solar panels don’t charge very well anymore and there’s no way a person could read a display through them anymore.
It could be that the boxes I purchased were of low quality and that some of the more reputable enclosure manufacturers have significantly better UV resistance… or maybe 3 years out in the sun is the best that one can expect?
I think the ideal solution would be a sealed enclosure with tempered glass on top (which would be guaranteed not to yellow), but I’ve never been able to find such a thing.
