Elen electrical enclosures innovative stainless steel enclosures with unique gasket

ELEN Enclosures, an industrial enclosure specialist with 35 years of experience, offers comprehensive ranges of 304L and 316L stainless steel enclosures from two globally reputed European manufacturers at very competitive prices. 

Stainless steel enclosures are primarily intended for and suited to corrosive environments where hygiene is important, such as food and beverage, packaging and pharmaceutical industries, as well as other corrosive industrial environments.

The newly upgraded ECOR range from Italian manufacturer ETA includes 33 sizes of single-door wall-mounting enclosures ranging from 300x200x150 mm to 1400x800x300 mm and 3 sizes of double-door enclosures of up to 1200x1200x300 mm. 

Made from 1,5 mm thick laser welded bodies with new, improved gutter profiled opening, increased internal depth and doors with formed corners, the enclosures are certified to IP66 sealing for single-door and IP55 for double-door.

They are supplied complete with aluzinc galvanised mounting plate. Accessories such as canopies, internal doors, and distribution board chassis are available in both stainless or mild-steel powder-coated options.

The enclosures have a brushed-satin-finish and are supplied with an easily-removable protective film to protect against scratches during delivery or machining.

The range introduces a major innovation in enclosure technology by way of an in-situ two-component foamed silicone compound door gasket.

The silicone gasket is resistant to a greater number of aggressive chemicals and has a higher temperature resistance (-50 oC to +200oC) to polyurethane gasket (-40 oC to +100oC), which is currently the industry norm. 

This widens the range of environments in which the enclosures can be used, i.e. from refrigeration plants to steelworks and foundries, as well as in the harsh industrial conditions found in chemical plants, refineries, water treatment, paper, pulp and textile industries. Stainless steel grades 304L and 316L offer better corrosion resistance than 304 and 316, respectively, and are particularly applicable to the weld points of an enclosure.

While Elen Enclosures has obtained local EX certification for the standard range, the ECOR supply program also offers a version complying with ATEX directive and conforming to Ex II 2GD, Ex e II T6 and Ex td A21 T85ºC for use in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 hazardous area applications.

The ATEX-approved range is supplied with a continuous formed-in polyurethane door gasket. Elen Enclosures’ workshop is highly experienced in the production of junction boxes certified for use in zoned hazardous areas.

Other stainless steel products from ETA include EMOX monobloc floor-standing cabinets, ENUX modular suite cabinets, EGRAN terminal boxes, SHX pushbutton boxes, ECOR Sloped-Roof enclosures and ZBX Control Desks, all of which are available from Elen Enclosures. Online catalogue at and
