Door options vary outdoor installations 

In wet and tough conditions, IP65 / IK08 BED door enclosures can be fitted with solid or transparent doors to suit a range of outdoor installations. They enclosures can be used in industrial and commercial applications, said BCL Enclosures.

The enclosures are designed to protect electrical and electronic installations. They are manufactured from ABS-HB material in grey RAL 7035. Doors can be solid in ABS or transparent in polycarbonate, which allows for visual inspection of contents or to read meters, for example.

The BED door enclosures are IP65-rated, protecting contents from solid particles such as dust or dirt and against low pressure water jets from any direction. IP65 protection is typically used for outdoor lighting installations that will be exposed to all weather conditions but is also suitable for many industrial and commercial applications such as marinas and leisure spas, advised BCL Enclosures.

In addition to providing IP65 protection, the robust enclosures are also rated IK08 for mechanical impact. IK08 provides protection against common accidental blows and dropped objects; the enclosures can withstand a 1.7kg object dropped from a height of 300mm, said BCL Enclosures. In addition, IK08 is a common rating used to denote a degree of resistance to vandalism.

BED Enclosures are supplied with galvanised steel back plates and mounting brackets, plus either one key lock (BED001 and BED011) or two key locks (all other sizes).

There are 16 models available in the BED Enclosure range. The smallest is the BED001, which measures 130 x 200 x 300mm and the largest model is the BED020, measuring 250 x 50 x 700mm.
