HellermannTyton’s IP rating upgrade of the Himel CRN wall mounted steel enclosure is proving that this leading cable management specialist is ahead of the field by continually improving its products.

The latest modifications to the range include improved integrity, improvements to the door and seal, a new locking system, as well as new profile reinforcements and additional accessories. The alterations to the steel enclosure have increased the IP rating from IP55 to IP66, therefore offering users a much improved structure that ensures the contents are fully protected against dust and wave like water jets from all directions.

Darren Hodson, HellermannTyton Enclosure Product Manager explained: "To keep up with the ever changing demands of the industry we have developed improvements to our CRN enclosure range and believe that they are now as rigid and durable as possible. The new enclosures already have UL certification and are currently being approved by a number of other bodies."

The new enclosure range has a strengthened body, and benefits from a new polyurethane seal, which drastically improves its rigidity, this along with a new profile and latch modifications, further reinforces the product.

The improvements to the door profile and locking system are designed to ensure enhanced strength, with the newly located locking system moved 10mm closer to the edge of the door and reduced in length by 10mm, allowing for easier lock disassembly and extended resistance to bending. The modifications to the door reinforcement profile include welding outside of the gasket seal zone; this alters the profile therefore preventing any water from penetrating the seal, effectively acting as a double barrier. The changes also result in the door being more robust and allowing a greater workable surface area. These alterations provide added protection from vandalism and damage, ensuring the enclosure is more rigid and secure against forceful impact.

During the transition period a star is being used on the packaging to identify the new IP66 enclosures, differentiating the existing packaging of the old IP55 rated enclosures.

The CRN enclosure is also available with a transparent tempered glass door. On all models the door is reversible, opening 120 degrees in either direction. There is also a full range of accessories available.

The new IP66 CRN wall mounted enclosure will be available early 2005 from all HellermannTyton Enclosure stockists. For further information contact HellermannTyton on 01922 458151 or visit www.hellermanntyton.co.uk.
