IP55 Enclosures

Bison ProFab is a leading manufacturer of high quality electrical enclosures that meet IP55 standards. The IEC's standardized International (or Ingress) Protection Code system is used to designate the protective capacity of an electrical enclosure. The two-digit code shows the protection against particles (the first digit) and water (the second digit).

    **This enclosure is not air tight and therefore only allows dust size particles in non-harmful quantities to penetrate.
  • Protection from voltage and moving parts for people who come in contact with the enclosure
  • Protection from water, including water sprayed from a nozzle onto the enclosure
