Integra Plays a Fighting Role in the Alternative Energy Industry and Wins
Whether your work takes you to the windy plains or the rainy Pacific, the environment calls for necessary safeguards against the elements when it comes to your electrical components. Integra’s polycarbonate enclosures are a smart alternative solution. Typically, enclosures are made from fiberglass, carbon steel or stainless steel, but polycarbonate has proven to be the top contender in the battle of the boxes.
Housing electrical components in the solar and alternative energy industry can be tricky, but Integra’s enclosures act as a strong defense against all manner of inclement weather (-40 deg F to 265 deg F). A common threat to your equipment is sunlight and increased temperature. When electrical parts are exposed to sunlight, you increase the risk of malfunction and need for repair of your devices. Polycarbonate enclosures keep things cool inside and reduce the chance of delayed operations. Unlike carbon steel that will rust, stainless steel that will stain but stain less or fiberglass that will have a chalking or blooming affect, polycarbonate will maintain its natural state outside long after the other types have failed. The enclosure’s natural UV resistance makes it the superior choice to mount anywhere you need it!
Our polycarbonate enclosures also meet a minimum standard of 4x/IP66 protection ratings against dust and moisture. An enclosure installed in a windy, rainy environment will likely encounter these elements, and having our durable protection outdoors extends the life of your electronics. As a result of our unmatched durability, Integra enclosures regularly outlast the lifespan of the devices housed inside.
Our weatherproof enclosures not only provide protection against the elements, but also possess exceptional impact resistance. Whether we are housing electrical equipment or remote monitoring controls, we can weather the storm in the alternative energy industry.
