The sun may be shining now as this is being written, but as a rule the UK is a soggy old island! In 2020 an average of 1,308 millimeters (51.5 inches) of rainfall was recorded and according to Ordnance Survey, in mainland UK we’re surrounded by 17,819km (that’s 11,072.76 miles in old money ;-) )of coastline. Add on all the islands and that goes up to 31,368 km (19,491.17 miles). That’s potentially a lot of water (and salt) that can put components in outdoor electrical installations in danger of failure.
Without the right enclosure your outdoor electrical installations are at risk from damage from challenging conditions. With IP ratings of IP66 (UCP/UCPT range) and IP 65/54 (UDP/UDPT) you can avoid unnecessary downtime with nVent Hoffman’s range of durable polyester wall mount enclosures.
