November 24, 2011 – Rittal’s new Hygienic Design (HD) enclosures are the ultimate solution where cleanliness and sanitation are paramount, says the company, adding that they are crafted of stainless steel, feature a smooth surface grain, internal hinges, washable gaskets, locks and no crevices to trap debris or contaminates. The new enclosures are available with screw covers for smaller, integrated applications or hinged doors for larger installations. According to Rittal, wall and door surfaces are angled to prevent objects from adhering to them so water runs off easily, and by using optional hardware, larger HD enclosures can be mounted on new HD leveling feet and fitted with a wire shelf to assist with cable routing.
