Strong, silent, timesaving, and made of the finest materials, the Westerbeke Sound Guard SST is designed for rugged service and is easy to install.
Materials are of the highest quality
The Sound Guard SST consists of 5 powder coated aluminium panels and stainless steel base and frame. The powder coated aluminium panels provide optimum corrosion resistance while reducing the weight of the generator. The frame (where attached to the base) and base are likely to be subjected to the most moisture; therefore, are of stainless steel, a highly corrosion resistant metal. Even the rivets are of stainless steel. The top panel also covers the side panels to lessen the likelihood that moisture will enter the Sound Guard SST.
Strong, sturdy and rugged
The Sound Guard SST is designed for tough duty. While not recommended to kneel or stand on the unit, some may ignore warnings and do just that. The thick frame and sturdy panels result in a very robust enclosure.
The Sound Guard SST is designed to please the eye and resist the corrosion process that age many sound enclosures before their time. Westerbeke believes each customer should be proud of any product’s appearance well after the initial purchase.
Engineered for silent operation
The Sound Guard SST cuts noise to enhance your offshore boating experience. Keeping your generator set to a whisper will allow you to enjoy the pleasure of boat ownership in the quiet of your favourite cove. Experience engineering excellence and a new standard of quality that is unheard of. Available for Westerbeke diesel generators 5–32 kW, the Sound Guard SST further reduces the average sound intensity of a generator set up to 50% so you can forget you have a set operating.
Serviceability is a snap
To remove any side or end panel requires only a quick snap of 2 latches and you have full access to all four sides. Westerbeke Sound Guards have always been famous for ease of serviceability and now have managed to create an even higher standard. Two access doors are also provided on the service side panel.
Pre-connected for ease of installation
The top panel can be removed in seconds for access to lifting eyes. The base and frame contain bulkhead fittings for all the generator’s external connections including the raw water line, siphon break, fuel lines, exhaust line, AC wiring and battery cables. Westerbeke supplies the necessary hoses, cables and hardware to make these connections, allowing quick and easy “plug & play” installations. Only a flathead screwdriver is required to assemble the frame - the panels require no assembly. Or you can order your new Westerbeke diesel pre-installed in the Sound Guard SST.
