NEMA Type 12 Double Door Freestanding Enclosure



EPI NEMA Type 12 Double Door Freestanding Enclosures are designed to house electrical controls, terminals, and instruments. They provide protection from dust, oil, and water in indoor use. Enclosures are extra deep for applications where added interior space is needed.


Made from 14, 12, or 10-gauge steel. All seams are continuously welded and there are no holes or knockouts. The neoprene door gaskets are attached with an oil-resistant adhesive. These enclosures have uniquely gasketed, overlapping doors, which eliminate the need for a center post. A 3-point latching mechanism operated by an oil-tight handle holds the doors securely closed. Heavy gauge continuous stainless steel hinges support each door. Each enclosure has body stiffeners. Panel supports can be provided to support the panel and aid in panel installation. Locking handles are optional.


Panels must be ordered separately. Regular panels, side panels, and panel supports are available. Floor stand kits are available for factory installation on enclosures. Drip shield kits protect door and door hardware from dripping water and settling dust.


The standard finish is Sherwin Williams ANSI-70, light dove gray inside and out. Panels are the same.
