LEGRAND UNDERLINES ITS ENCLOSURE COMMITMENT
Legrand, a world leader in products and systems for electrical installations and information networks, has underlined its commitment to the UK enclosures market.
“As a global Group we manufacture more than 30-million units in ten dedicated plants around the world every year and, in the last four years, have spent close to £8million on European product development,” said Andy Wiles, Legrand’s UK market segment manager for commercial and industrial products.
“Here in the UK we not only have a nationwide network of stockists and distributors who enable swift and efficient product distribution, but in 2006 we launched new ranges of enclosures that combined customer feedback with our own development ideas to ensure our offering remained amongst the very best available.”
Replacing all of its glass reinforced polyester (GRP) wall and floor mounting enclosures, Legrand’s enhanced range of Marina enclosures has been extensively modernised to make it even more user-friendly and easier to equip, install and maintain.
For example, the new Marina range now features:
• Mounting plates that can be fitted directly to the rear of the enclosure without the need for additional fixings.
• Internal and external fixings outside the usable area of the enclosure that aid installation while maximising useable space.
• A vibration resistant hinge on the door for areas subject to extremes of vibration.
• A ribbed moulding on the door to deflect water outwards when opened, therefore eliminating the problems of drips entering the enclosure or splashing onto the equipment.
These innovative developments are complemented by the company’s existing mild steel and stainless steel Atlantic wall mounting enclosures, which include a range of plinths that allow them to be easily converted to floor standing models.
In addition, the colour of both ranges has changed from beige RAL 7032 to grey RAL 7035 – bringing the products in line with modern requirements. And, by removing metal in the GRP Marina design, Legrand has made end of life disposal easier.
“The Legrand Group is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of enclosures,” added Andy Wiles. “This is a position we are rightly proud of and one that we aim to maintain and build upon, especially in key markets such as the UK.”
