Advanced - Switchgear Enclosures

HV/LV - Switchgear Enclosures - Weather Proof Enclosures

Design & Manufacture of HV/LV Switchgear Enclosures

Our switchgear enclosures comprise a painted, steel clad and insulated kiosk with a steel base frame. The enclosures are weatherproof and vandal resistant.


A typical enclosure’s walls and roof are fabricated using 75mm deep preformed sections comprising of a Zintec steel skin and a 0.7mm thick galvanized steel inner skin. The intervening space is packed with high-density mineral wool to provide a thermal barrier to help avoid condensation.

An internal steel plate floor is fitted with switchgear mounting pads and up-stands for minor cabling (as per project specifications).

A fan plate, discharge air louvre and inlet air louvre are included as standard, with all inlets and outlets fitted with galvanized bird mesh.

Unistrut suspended cable containment trays can also be provided, to suit the installed equipment specification.

The dimensions of each enclosure are project specific, but a typical size for a three door system (see images) would be 12m x 3.2m x 8.0m (LWH). The interior and exterior are finished with a Two Pack acrylic paint system.


Range of small light and power options:

  • 240V / 58W fluorescent lamps, c/w switches by access doors
  • All internal electrical cabling in galvanized trunking & conduit
  • RCD protected consumer unit
  • Electric fan
  • Thermostatically controlled heaters
  • 240V range of sockets
  • 240V fused spurs

  • Intruder alarm
  • Marshalling box


Hinged, vandal proofed personnel doors provide access on the sides of the container with one of the doors providing access to a separate HV room at one end of the enclosure.

Locking external handles with internal push-to-release ‘panic’ handles, heavy duty rubber seals and door retainers.

Double hinged, locking equipment doors with removable centre post provide access to the sides of the container, to aid in the installation and removal of switchgear.
