All of our units are available in a powder coat finish of forest green, white, or ANSI 61 grey. These colors are known for reducing glare, are the least heat absorbent, and are weatherproof.

Electrical NEMA 3R enclosures play a significant role in ensuring that a system conducts its operations smoothly and efficiently. You cannot settle for anything short of the best to keep your system up and running. These enclosures also ensure the safety of your workers. Most systems deal with high-voltage junction boxes, which can pose a danger if they do not have coverings. You can invest in lockable stainless steel electrical enclosures to prevent anyone from tampering with your electrical equipment.

In as much as price matters when buying enclosures, the quality of the units should be considered. Quality units are durable, reliable, and sustainable in the long run. You might invest highly at the start, but the boxes will last long to cover the cost and then some.

It is also essential to consider the environmental effects of the units you buy. Stainless steel units contain fewer toxins and impurities. They will last long, which reduces pollution. You can recycle or dispose of the metal in an eco-friendly manner when it is old or inefficient. Resellers should be aware that consumers are looking for environmentally conscious brands who seek to reduce Earth’s pollution.
