Uses for Wall Boxes
Electrical: Wall boxes are frequently used to secure access to delicate or potentially dangerous electrical systems such as fuse boxes of power inlets. When it is important to keep electrical systems free from environmental factors such as moisture, for safety and functionally, high IP rated wall boxes are used normally with suitable locks.
General Purpose Wall Boxes:For secure outdoor or indoor storage, wall boxes are lockable, providing storage for important or potentially hazardous items. With stainless steel, steel, polyester, plastic, ABS, thermoplastic, aluminium or other metal versions available, the sturdy construction of these wall boxes ensures a high level of security with and without a lock.
Marine Environments Wall Boxes:IP67 wall mounted enclosures are available, with material ensuring protection in hose down environments and even some marine applications with seals for the base and lid or door and are lockable.
Transparent Doors for Wall Boxes:Wall mounted enclosures often come in ranges with transparent doors. Although this may lower the impact resilience of the box, it allows you to view the contents within the storage box.
