Lockable, solid door steel enclosures

Jon Lawson

To think of enclosures as simple boxes is to underestimate their importance – the focus is so often on the function of the electrical or electronic installation inside – but without the right enclosure, that installation is at risk.

DEDS Series lockable, solid door steel enclosures are specially designed to provide high-quality, secure, cost-effective protection for exterior electronic and electrical installations.

Lockable and maintenance free, the DEDS Enclosure Series is IP66 rated against water and dust ingress, meets IK10 specifications against impact and complies with IEC 60529 standards.

Suitable applications for this rugged series include a myriad of electrical and electronic applications such as HVAC, lighting, and installations such as holiday home consumer units where protection against the elements and tampering are important considerations.

For superior robustness and longevity, DEDS enclosure housings are guaranteed against corrosion for three years and are fabricated from galvanised steel, powder-coated in grey RAL7035.

DEDS Series enclosure back plates are manufactured from 2mm galvanised steel and carry a similar 3-year anti-corrosion guarantee.

All threaded studs are rust-proof stainless steel. As the DEDS Series is primarily designed with exterior installation in mind, the gland-plate modules for cable entry (which can be top or base mounted) are supplied with IP66-rated sealing gaskets for total protection against dust and water jets or waves.

A further benefit of the DEDS Series enclosures is an earth-wired stud between the door and the housing, which saves valuable installation time.

DEDS Series steel enclosures are supplied complete with lock and key and wall mounting brackets. This comprehensive range includes ten different sizes, ranging from 300mm x 200mm x 130mm to 1250mm x 600mm x 300mm.

A wide range of accessories is also available, including cable glands, Kwik-Fix cable glands, venting elements, contactors/thermal overloads and fans.
