In stock now at Elite Antennas are fresh stocks of 3003 blanks made to our specification and reserved for production of 4.5m antennas. The flat blanks, at 2.5m wide and 5m long are thought to be the largest currently supplied into the United Kingdom, and allow a 4.5m reflector to be prepared for spinning with only a single radial weld, giving the cleanest possible finish and highest possible surface accuracy.

Elite Antennas stocks a range of material made specifically for integration into its antenna systems, including unusually long extrusions, thick walled hollow sections and low temper sheet in order to produce the highest quality spun reflectors available anywhere in the world.
