GRP Enclosures for harsh environments

07 January 2008

FIBOX has introduced a superior range of Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) enclosures and cabinets to its UK customers whose applications demand the improved chemical, thermal and mechanical properties deemed necessary, for use in today’s multi-purpose processing industries.

Maintaining an emphasis on product integrity and rated IP66, the new CAB P, CAB PX & Solid P range of enclosures have been specifically introduced to meet the ever-increasing demands of engineers in industries where GRP is widely specified for housing electrical, electronic, pneumatic controls and instrumentation.

However, due to the advantageous mechanical and electrical properties of this new range of GRP enclosures, original equipment designers and panel builders are also choosing the FIBOX CAB P, CAB PX & Solid P enclosure ranges for their durability, strong performance and proven longevity and precision service in demanding applications across a wide variety of industry segments.

Steve Gallon, Fibox UK managing director, explained, “One of the great advantages that Panel and System Builders have found by specifying these GRP enclosures instead of steel is that no extra finishing is required when drilling holes, as GRP is totally corrosion-proof. Another advantage GRP has over steel, especially when being installed on-site, is that machining, drilling and cutting doesn’t give off conductive or magnetic 'swarf' that can seriously damage sensitive electronic or electrical equipment”.

Accessories for all product groups include: Mounting plates, DIN rails, DIN rail frames, rain hoods, plain front plates, front plates with DIN openings, wall mounting lugs, main cable entry applications, sockets for floor standing applications and both opaque and transparent covers.

The new CAB range also comes with two locking options: double-bit locking or swing-handle multi-point locking for extra security.
