What size is a Standard Size GRP Enclosure

Categories:

What size is a Standard Size GRP Enclosure” is a question we get asked many times, and to be honest it’s a difficult one to answer as it depends on its intended use.

Adept GRP try to cover all eventualities by offering a significant range of standard sizes, these Range from our VR1 Cabinet which is suitable for a small distribution board and a double socket through to our VR20,  a much larger Enclosure designed to operate as a Switchgear Housing. The Roadside Range in between these two examples are intended to offer variations in the hope that there’s always a GRP Cabinet or GRP Housing to suit everyone. We do come across instances where floor space is limited and the tight restrictions mean that a GRP Kiosk of a particular size is specified, we can overcome this by designing and manufacturing an Enclosure to fit into the available space. We have even had instances where the space was so restricted there was no scope for the Enclosure doors to be opened, we overcame this by fitting a small roller shutter door which, whilst providing the necessary security, also provided full access to the equipment inside, allowing for essential maintenance as and when necessary.

To summarise, GRP Electrical Enclosures and Large GRP Housings can be manufactured by Adept GRP to suit your particular application, Doors, Vents etc can be positioned to suit and we are able to manufacture in most external colours from the BS or RAL Range. Please visit our online store to view our Standard Range of Electrical Cabinets, Large GRP Enclosures and Bespoke GRP Kiosks.

Benefits of GRP

Categories: Tags:

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) has numerous benefits that are hugely beneficial in the manufacture of GRP Enclosures.

The primary benefits would be its Lifespan, GRP Enclosures remain operational for well over 25 years, they don’t need any painting or staining, a little light lubricating Oil on the hinges and lock will ensure trouble free service for years to come.

 

Another such advantage would be the flexibility in Design

GRP Panels can be produced in specified sizes. We often encounter instances whereas a GRP Enclosure is required at roof top level, the Service Lift is very often too small so we resolve the issue by Manufacturing the Wall/Roof Panels to suit the service lift. We then offer a Service whereas an Adept GRP Site Crew will attend Site and erect the Enclosure in the requested location.

 

Adept GRP Enclosures (also referred to as GRP Kiosks) are Non Conductive and are finished internally with a Fire Retardant Resin.

They are manufactured with the end use in mind, the position of the Doors and any other features dictated by the Customer prior to the commencement of manufacture. Further details are available at  https://adeptgrp.co.uk/grp-enclosures/bespoke-grp-enclosures/
