An electrical enclosure is a cabinet for electrical equipment to mount equipment and to prevent electrical shock to equipment users and protect the contents from the environment.
The electrical enclosure industry is a critical part of the infrastructure behind encasing and shielding hazardous equipment from the general public.
Enclosures can help mitigate fire hazards, reduce the risk of shock, and minimise other dangerous physical effects that can happen during accidental contact with electrical equipment.
The enclosure is the first part of the equipment to be seen, so its designed not only for its utilitarian requirements, but also to be pleasing to the eye.
There are a vast range of enclosures with high quality materials on offer, to ensure the installation fulfils even the highest safety requirements.
Materials of the enclosures are steel or plastic, with each of these having various options to choose from e.g. polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminium, etc.
They may also feature doors, which can be transparent to reveal the contents.
Depending on the application, size and structure, enclosures can be:
Floor standing – these freestanding structures can house several racks to store equipment. They can have one or two doors depending on their dimensions, and they’re perfect to store large electrical components.
Hand held – these are the perfect solution on the go when carrying small devices, such as batteries and PCB’s, or tools like screwdrivers. Their modular structure makes it easy to store and protect different kinds of electrical components in the same box.
Wall mounted – these come in handy when the spare for storage is too narrow for standing enclosures.
Most enclosures feature an IP rating which is an international standard used as a measure of the protection offered by the structure against foreign bodies and moisture.
To help choose the right enclosure for your application, many factors have to be considered:
