C16L24 cage system covers are shown enclosing a 16 mm cage system. Each cover features tracks that allow it to snap onto the cage rods.
Thorlabs' Cage System Covers are designed to enclose 16 mm, 30 mm, or 60 mm cage systems. They can protect users from stray beams or wavelengths that are invisible to the naked eye, as well as prevent ambient light, dust, and other contaminants from accessing the beam path. Made from high impact polystyrene plastic, the cage covers are sold in 24" lengths, which can be easily cut to the desired length by the user; see the Cutting Tutorial tab for details.
Each cover features a tab on one side that provides an additional light seal and an area to grip during installation and removal. The covers snap onto the cage rods, as shown in the images to the right. To remove, simply pull the tab to release the cover.
Please note that these cage system covers are not light tight and should not be used in high-power applications.
