Legrand has extended its range of weatherproof Atlantic-E metal cabinets to now include electric orange units– manufactured especially for the local market.
“Atlantic-E cabinets, with a high quality orange finish associated with power and a warning of danger, meet local requirements for health and safety, including NOSA’s recommendations for ensuring optimum safety in the workplace,” says Luk Ivens, general manager for Legrand Southern Africa. “These rigid cabinets ensure the maximum safety and the ordered arrangement and optimum protection of electrical components, like terminal blocks, switches and sockets, fuse carriers, safety transformers and circuit breakers.”
Legrand’s cabinets, which have an IP 66 index protection rating to guard against dust and water ingress and a material strength of IK10, are designed for installation in diverse industrial and commercial applications where there is no excessive corrosion stress. These environments include warehouses, shopping centres, hospitals, outdoor car parks and camp sites.
These cabinets, with a polyurethane weatherproof seal, are supplied by Legrand ready for use, equipped with galvanised plain mounting plates, a cable entry plate, earth connection braid and mounting lugs to securely fix the cabinet onto a wall or roof, in a horizontal or vertical position.
The removable plain plate provides maximum usable space and facilities easy attachment of equipment. This plate can be replaced by perforated plates or a ready to use chassis.
These cabinets can be equipped with cable glands or a Cabstop plate to optimise cable entry and reduce installation time. These cable entries, which consist of a cable clamp to provide the mechanical grip and elastomer areas, have an IP 55 index protection rating for enhanced weatherproofing. Fire retardant materials enhance safety of the installation. The Cabstop plate has a minimum tensile resistance of 15 kg and can withstand temperatures of between - 20°C and +65°C.
Legrand’s Lina 25 perforated plates are designed to simplify fixing equipment in the cabinet for perfect integration of modular devices.
