NEMA Type 12 Multi Door Freestanding Enclosure



EPI NEMA Type 12 Multi-Door Free-Standing Enclosures are designed to house electrical controls, terminals, and instruments. They provide protection from dust, oil, and water in indoor use.


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, with a T-handle, holds the doors closed. Heavy gauge continuous stainless steel hinges support each door. Body stiffeners and door stiffeners are provided in larger enclosures for extra rigidity. Mounting brackets are provided for an optional mounting panel.


Panels must be ordered separately. Drip shield kits protect the door and the door hardware from dripping water and settling dust.


The standard finish is Sherwin Williams ANSI-70, light-dove gray inside and out. Other finishes are available for specific applications.
