Custom Fabricated ABS & Acrylic Mobile Surveillance Camera Housing for the Security and Construction Industry

A client who supplies security systems for construction sites requested Acrylic Art to manufacture a mobile surveillance housing which can accept the mounting of various security cameras. This housing unit would be used for temporary construction sites. Employing a combination of CNC milling, plastic fabrication, vacuum forming, and assembly, we were able to build this product to print.

We began this project by first machining all housing features from ABS plastic material using our 3-axis vertical CNC machining center. We additionally machined all slots and drilled and tapped all holes. We then contracted an outside source to create a fully thermoformed acrylic dome. This dome was designed to allow 360° camera rotation and viewing.

Finally, we assembled all machined parts using solvent cement and basic plastic fabrication techniques. Meeting a (±) .010 precision tolerance, we constructed the mobile surveillance housing to measure precisely 10.25 inches long and wide and 5.625 inches high. The dome itself measured 9.875 inches in outer diameter and 4.5 inches in height. After manufacturing was complete, we painted this unit silver.

Based on a customer supplied, 3D CAD drawing, Acrylic Art built a mobile surveillance housing for the construction industry complete with internal fittings, stand-offs, and brackets. The unit’s mobility allowed for various on-site video and still camera surveillance. Exceeding our client’s expectations for quality and fulfilling all product specifications, we shipped the completed housing to our buyer’s facility in San Ramon, California.
