Dear Jane,

The IQ symbol you find on the specs of some of our electrical enclosures means ‘Industrial Quality’. It is a symbol we associate to products that have been designed to offer resilience, safety, ruggedness and longevity. Our range of IQ-marked enclosures are therefore ideal for use in harsh operating environments as well as to address highly specific or stringent requirements.

For example, they can withstand extremely low and high temperatures, they are flame-, impact, UV- and weather-resistant. Also, they can be used in applications where harsh chemicals are used and offer ingress protection (IP) ratings up to IP68, to prevent water and dust from damaging the electrical equipment within.

Typical IQ-rated enclosures from Spelsberg include the GEOS series of industrial and outdoor solutions, the WKE fire protection junction boxes and the AK distribution boards with innovative Air-Technology.

For additional information on the IQ symbol and its meaning, visit: https://www.spelsberg.co.uk/service/technical-information/technical-information/industrial-quality/

If you have additional questions on our range of IQ-marked enclosures or specific requests for your intended application, please feel free to send me a private message to discuss them.

Kind Regards,

Chris
