Ensuring a fast turnaround on enclosures

To the untrained eye, electrical enclosures can come across as very uniform, standardised products. However, enclosure companies such as Spelsberg must be adaptable when it comes to meeting specific customer requirements within a short timeframe.
Chris Lloyd, Managing Director at Spelsberg UK, explains the challenges of supplying enclosures to customers quickly, and how Spelsberg as a business overcomes them.
Ensuring regulatory compliance for the intended application is a process we manage through continued dialogue with the customer. Having to return an enclosure because it is not suitable for the application can lead to missed deadlines for our customers, so getting it right first time is a must.

Upon consultation the client explained that the enclosure would house potentially hazardous parts, therefore we instead recommended a TK polycarbonate (PC) enclosure that was NEMA 6 compliant and UL certified. The suggested enclosure was sent to the client for testing and it was approved for use within three days of the initial enquiry.
