Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are sheet metal enclosures?


    Sheet metal steel enclosures are metal cases or covers used to protect electrical equipment from the environment and prevent electric shock to equipment users. They are commonly used in the electrical industry for circuit breakers, contactors, control panels, and switches. There are several benefits associated with sheet metal enclosures, including their ability to conduct electricity, reduce emissions, and withstand harsh industrial environments.

  • What metal are electrical panels made of?


    An electrical panel is a metal box with a door containing circuit breaker switches. These panels are commonly made from stainless steel, aluminum, or galvanized mild steel. Despite metal being conductive, electrical panels are grounded, so if a live wire touches them, electricity is redirected away from anything potentially dangerous.

  • What are switch boxes made of?


    There are different types of switch boxes, including those that support toggle switches, duplex devices, decorative devices, and electrical outlets. Most boxes are made of plastic or metal. The metal boxes are generally made of steel.

  • What is the difference between 5052 aluminum and 6061 aluminum sheet metal enclosures?


    The lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties of aluminum make it an ideal material for sheet metal parts and enclosures. 5052 aluminum’s ability to bend into tight shapes without cracking is renowned. Due to its ease of machining and welding, 5052 is ideal for metal sheet enclosures. Although 6061 is more susceptible to cracking than 5052, because of how soft the metal is, It is ideal for CNC machined parts, panels and enclosures.
