When your name is ‘Sky’ you better have a sharp eye on the horizon. Sky Hansen, Jr. of Communications Structures and Solutions, lived up to that by working in the aerospace industry making radomes.  That background helped in adding his products and services to the telecom market.  “It let us create a lightweight and very strong screening product with very good RF transparency,” Hansen said.

C.S.S. now focuses on creating custom RF transparent concealment for wireless antenna cell sites having started in 1984, as a fabrication and pattern shop.  “We have over 35 years of experience in composite tooling and fabrication,” Hansen said.  “Our structures are designed, pre-assembled and painted to significantly reduce installation time in the field.”  

One of Hansen’s latest products he represents is the “Super Shroud”, a concealment case for monopole and rooftop antennas.  “I work on R&D with them and go to the various shows to represent it. We also make some of the parts as a subcontractor,” he said.

“We have since grown, serving the wireless industry,” Hansen said. “ Our new location in Sumner, Washington has given us good access to our customers and suppliers.”  

Among the services C.S.S. offers are:

  • Steel Fabrication
  • Aluminum Fabrication
  • FRP Fabrication
  • Custom & Standard “Screening” Panels
  • Tooling & Mold Making
  • Composite Lay-up & Fabrication
  • Machining
