Fiberglass-Reinforced Polyester Enclosures Suitable for Extreme Environments

July 30, 2020
Products are available in a variety of sizes

Allied Moulded Products Inc., which manufactures nonmetallic electrical boxes and enclosures, has expanded its AM and AM-R series of fiberglass-reinforced polyester enclosures.

The AM “flat cover” series and AM-R “raised cover” series of compression-molded products are made from Ultraguard thermoset sheet-molded compound material and have been available for many years as an alternative to stainless steel enclosure products in a multitude of extreme temperature and corrosive environment applications. Allied Moulded has expanded this series with two new sizes: 12 in. by 12 in. by 4 in. and 12 in. by 12 in. by 6 in. (base part numbers AM1224 and AM1226, respectively). These sizes are offered with the same features as the existing AM(-R) series product families.

The AM and AM-R series come standard with 316 stainless steel mounting foot brackets and external cover latching hardware, along with a formed-in-place polyurethane gasket system that provides repeatable NEMA 4X/IP66 cover-sealing characteristics. Each unit comes standard with internal brass inserts for mounting back panels in applications where equipment must be fastened down inside the enclosure for protection from corrosive environments. AM-R “raised cover” models are set up to accept field-installable hinged front panels for applications requiring access to control push-buttons and monitors inside the enclosure, yet keep humans safely separated from the power installed down in the enclosure.
