The Fibox Arca range of glass reinforced polycarbonate, wall /pole mounted cabinets is now on the market and is already being specified by a number of Control Panel manufacturers and OEM companies who have identified the benefits of installing injection moulded products in areas where traditional sheet steel and GRP enclosures will corrode in time
Early projects have included switchgear cabinets for use in the water and waste industry, telemetry housings for CCTV installations and for housing very sensitive electronic equipment for controlling batch feeding in the agricultural industry. Arca glass reinforced polycarbonate enclosures offer specifiers a wide range of choices to meet their varying needs and circumstances; a sign of such a diverse application was no better illustrated as when the Arca was specified as the ideal product to house fire extinguishers on the decks of boats.
To support the fast supply of Arca into the market, a number of distributors have been appointed to carry local stock and to respond to the growing number of enquiries being received from our marketing activity.
Fibox Arca was developed in response to requests from the control panel industry, and many specialist OEM companies for a range of robust, high IPK rated cabinets which have all the features of sheet steel and GRP equivalents, but with the benefits of high quality injection moulded technology.
The Fibox Arca range offers sizes from 300x200x150 up to 800x600x300, in landscape and portrait versions, with or without windows and removable gland plates. Plans to extend the range in line with feedback from the market are well underway.
As every installer of wall or pole mounted cabinets will know, availability of accessories is crucially important in the specification process. Fibox understands this and as a result the new Arca range boasts a wide selection of easy to fit products to ensure that a control system can be completed quickly and without the troublesome need to manufacture bespoke components.
The days are long gone when plastic enclosures were seen as a less robust, poor relation to the established sheet steel ranges which dominated the market. Although sheet steel enclosures still have a very important part to play when installed in the right environment, Fibox has now, with the introduction of Arca, given the market a viable alternative where critically important equipment needs to be installed in hostile and demanding environments and corrosion cannot be risked.
