    Rugged IP65 door enclosures need no hidden extras

    New sizes added to DE range


    September 2015 – Wellingborough, UK: Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components, enclosures and rack systems, has extended its DE range of IP65 door enclosures which have gained a reputation in the market as providing rugged, maintenance-free and cost-effective protection for long-life applications.

    All DE door enclosures are supplied with a galvanised steel back plate, external mounting brackets and a lock and key as standard, so unlike competing products there are no hidden costs. Made from flame-retardant ABS, the enclosures feature wall thicknesses of up to 3.5mm to offer impact resistance of IK08 (protection against impacts with an energy up to 5J). Because ABS is non-corrosive, the enclosures deliver protection from continued exposure to external conditions, even in marine applications. Liquid gasket seals - a standard feature throughout the range – ensure IP65 protection is maintained, even when the doors are repeatedly opened and closed for regular access.

    The range now comprises 10 sizes from the smallest enclosure which measures 200 x 300 x 130mm high to the largest at 600 x 800 x 260mm. Blank or transparent (polycarbonate) doors are available for all sizes.

    Comments Mark Severn, Director of Sales for Hylec-APL: “Installation is quick and easy thanks to external wall brackets that don’t compromise the overall IP rating and an internal galvanised steel back plate. These enclosures are widely used in many applications including industrial control and automation, holiday home consumer units, HVAC, lighting etc.

    The enclosures are available directly from Hylec-APL. They are also held in stock by many of the UK’s leading distributors and wholesalers including Evatron, CPC, Rapid, QVS, Edmundson and more.
