Cleveland, Ohio Bud Industries Inc. now offers additional sizes for its new NBB series of large non-metallic enclosures. The company says the lightweight enclosures cost less than metallic models, while retaining durability and strength for most applications.
The non-metallic enclosures meet a number of industry standards including UL508 Type 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, and 13; NEMA Type 1, 2, 4, 4x, 12 and 13; and IEC529-IP66. Sizes range from 5.1 in. (H) x 3.9 in. (W) x 2.75 in. (D) to 28.9 in (H) x 21.0 in (W) x 9.9 in (D). Indoor versions are constructed from ABS/PC blended plastic with an UL94-5VB flammability rating and outdoor versions are PC/PBT blended plastic with an UL94-5VA flammability rating and an UV stabilizer.
The gasketed front doors feature non-metallic hinges and latches for maximum durability and corrosion resistance, and are available in either solid gray or clear finish. Threaded brass inserts in selected internal and external mounting bosses increase holding strength and allow for repeated fastening.
Accessories include internal hinged panel mounting brackets, air and moisture vents, a stainless steel locking hasp, and galvanized steel inner panels. These enclosures can be used in a wide range of applications including control boxes for lighting and access controls, general machine and process controls in factory environments, control boxes in corrosive environments such as chemical plants and pulp/paper mills, and in facilities with wash down requirements such as food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing.
Available from stock, prices start at $8.20 depending on size and model, with volume discounts available.
