For more than 20 years, Great Lakes has manufactured enclosures for industrial control panels used in a number of industries, including HVAC, oil and gas, water and alternative energy - just to name a few. A full-scale, on-site lab tests enclosures for compliance with multiple UL, NEMA and IP standards. Manufacturing and testing for all industrial products takes place in a single facility and has allowed Great Lakes to expand their production capabilities in order to meet growing customer demands, including:
- Requirements for an industrial enclosure to support recurring business
- Unique configuration or custom requirements, which are not met by off-the-shelf products
- Specific custom industrial enclosures other manufacturers will not make
Standard Industrial Enclosures: Industrial Type 3R, 4 and 4X Enclosures
Great Lakes has developed a standard portfolio of UL508A Listed, NEMA 250 Type 3R, 4 and 4X wall mounts and enclosures that serve as the basis for most customer requirements. Each of these series of wall mounts/enclosures have been independently tested and certified to a maximum size; products can be manufacturerd to any size that falls within a specified range and still maintain a UL listing and NEMA rating. Prior to shipping, industrial enclosures can be configured with a number of accessories, including EIA spaced rails, back panels and airflow options so that product is ready for population upon delivery. Standard industrial enclosures are not stocked product and typically require an 8-10 week production time.
Custom Industrial Product
Great Lakes portfolio of UL and NEMA listed products is extensive and normally able to suit customers' needs. On occasion, the customer may have unique specifications that require a custom product. Custom industrial product can be manufactured to industry standards, including UL and NEMA 250 requirements; however, custom product will not be certified unless requested by the customer. Customers who require UL and NEMA certification for custom product are responsible for any monetary fees associated with testing. Custom industrial product requires a lead time and may vary based on the requirements of specific accessories, unique materials, coatings or finishes.
Info about the above photo: Great Lakes was asked to engineer a series of dock boxes for a marina in Florida. The marina developer did not want the fiberglass structures normally found for shore power and other slip connections. It was required that these custom enclosures match the quality, color and finish of the existing enclosures, which housed the infrastructure connections of the marina.
