Polycarbonate Enclosures & Non-Metallic Enclosures
Polycarbonate Enclosures in comparison to other non-metallic enclosures are more impact resistant, durable (UV resistant), and easier to modify. The injection molding process of polycarbonate enables pricing to be 20-25% less. Polycarbonate enclosures are used in harsh environments such as waste water treatment, irrigation/water control, solar/wind, chemical plants, and outdoor wireless installations. Solutions Direct distributes two manufacturers of polycarbonate enclosures: Allied Moulded and Fibox. These enclosures are UL and CSA compliant and meet IP 65, 66, 67 as well as NEMA Type 4, 4X, 6, and 6P ratings.
