IP56 Enclosures

Bison ProFab manufactures high quality IP56 electrical enclosures. International Protection (IP) standards are 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).

IP56 Protection

  • Protection for the enclosed equipment from dust and other materials such as dirt, oils and non-corrosives. Small quantities of dust can enter the enclosure, but the quantity of dust cannot impact the operation of the equipment.
  • Protection from voltage and moving parts for people who come in contact with the enclosure
  • Protection from splashing water, hose-driven water, rain, sleet, snow and corrosion.

IP56 enclosures are rated for indoor and outdoor use.
