Dear David,

Your question about the ideal enclosure for outdoor use is an important one, especially when considering the protection of electrical components against different weather conditions. Aspects to consider include protection against sunlight, rain and other weather conditions, outdoor temperatures as well as impacts.

Our polycarbonate (PC) range of enclosures would serve as the best choice for outside use. Crafted from sturdy, lightweight PC material, these enclosures are constructed to endure harsh outdoor environments and protection against UV light. Thanks to their high IP66 protection class, they provide excellent resistance against dust, heavy rainfall, or powerful water jets, thus securing your electrical components from the elements.

The PC range can withstand extreme temperatures, ranging from -35°C to 80°C, and have high resistance to flammability, further contributing to durability and longevity. With an impact strength of IK08, these enclosures can withstand shocks and impacts commonly encountered outdoors.

Being sealable and stackable, they come equipped with durable polyamide, glass-fibre reinforced cover screws. This feature protects the internal components while optimising space utilisation.
