    New size DED series rugged IP65 door enclosures from Hylec-APL increase design flexibility

    Simple to install; no ‘extra’ fittings required; unique construction ensures long life

    February 2016 – Wellingborough, UK: Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components, enclosures and rack systems, has added two new sizes to its IP65-rated DED range of rugged door enclosures, with the option of solid or transparent doors. The new units measure 400 x 175 x 500mm (w, d, and h) and 600 x260 x 800mm (w, d, h) and their construction ensures that they deliver maintenance-free and cost-effective housings for applications that are designed to have a long working life. Liquid gasket seals ensure IP65 protection is maintained, even when the doors are repeatedly opened and closed for regular access.

    DED series door enclosures are now available in a range of sizes measuring from 200 x 300 x 130mm high to 600 x 800 x 260mm. Unlike inferior products, all DE enclosures are supplied as standard with a galvanised steel back plate, external mounting brackets and a lock and key as standard. This means that there are no hidden ‘extra’ costs and that installation should proceed smoothly and fuss-free. External wall brackets further simplify installation, yet they do not compromise the overall IP rating.

    Comments Mark Severn, Director of Sales for Hylec-APL: “By introducing these new sizes we are increasing design flexibility, yet ensuring that the customer gets exactly the right sized product for his design. Applications are many and varied, including industrial control and automation, holiday home consumer units, HVAC, lighting etc”

    DED 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, Philex and more.
