IP57 Enclosures

Bison ProFab manufactures high quality electrical enclosures that meet IP57 standards. 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).

IP57 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 water entering the enclosure in harmful quantities when it is submersed for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 3 feet.

IP57 enclosures are rated for indoor and outdoor use and are used in marine applications.
