I live right next to the sea and have a large window quite close to my computer setup which allows a lot of indirect sunlight to enter.
I'd like to buy or make a cover for my computer system. From visiting my usual mom & pop computer shop yesterday I got the impression these might not really exist any more.
If I make my own I need a material with these qualities;
- Block or reduce ultraviolet light which can de-polymerize plastics (the sun here in Australia is much stronger than in the northern hemisphere).
- Block salt-laden sea air which can oxidize USB and other connectors.
- Not cause static electricity when covering or uncovering.
- Keep dust off of course
My setup is a laptop plugged into a wide-screen LCD with a few external drives. So I think I'd want a largish sheet to flop over the whole desk.
Are such covers commonly sold these days? What material(s) should I look for which provides the listed attributes?
