Corrosion-resistant GRP enclosures

27 September 2023 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Hammond Manufacturing has a range of glass-reinforced polyester (GRP) enclosures which are both lightweight and corrosion resistant. They are also UV resistant, enabling them to be installed indoors, and in outdoor areas in direct sunlight.

The new black 1590ZGRPBK family offers the same 18 sizes as the well-established and field-proven 1590ZGRP grey family. The design offers better impact resistance, and all sizes have the additional feature of shelves moulded into the base, fitted with threaded inserts to house a PCB or other electrical equipment. The thick-walled design provides good thermal insulation and impact resistance.

The family is designed for use as instrument enclosures, electric, hydraulic or pneumatic control housings, electrical junction boxes, or terminal wiring enclosures. The family of enclosures is ideal for housing equipment that use Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or other non-wired communication technologies, as the antennas can be safely positioned inside the enclosure, without suffering signal attenuation.

Key features of these enclosures are:

• 18 sizes from 81 x 75 x 55 mm to 600 x 250 x 160 mm, including lids.

• Heavy-duty construction with a wall thickness of between 3,7 and 5 mm.

• IP66 sealing.

• Easy to wall mount using through box holes outside the sealing gasket.

• Corrosion resistant.

• Good thermal insulation.

• Optional hinge kits are available for the lids.
