Pentair Technical Products announces the Hoffman® brand rugged Type 4X hinged-cover polycarbonate enclosures with stainless steel latches. Featuring durable, light gray polycarbonate, integrated molded hinges for secure cover attachment and stainless steel hinge pins for chemical and corrosion resistance, these non-metallic enclosures provide reliable protection for sensitive electrical and electronic components.
Designed to withstand harsh environments, Hoffman’s polycarbonate enclosures are corrosion resistant and feature quick-release stainless steel latches. A drip shield, located at the top and bottom of the enclosure body, effectively protects the gasket area from dust and water ingress when installed in either left or right hand hinge applications. For enhanced protection, enclosures are equipped with a molded-in padlocking feature, which provides wire tie and lockout capabilities while allowing operators to easily open the well-sealed cover.
“Offering a rugged design and enhanced environmental performance, polycarbonate enclosures provide our customers a cost-efficient alternative solution for corrosion resistant applications,” said Garrett Potvin, Product Manager, Pentair Technical Products. “Their inherent durability minimizes maintenance and replacement costs, resulting in a lower overall total cost of ownership while maximizing electronic protection capabilities.”

- Durable, lightweight polycarbonate construction is chemical and corrosion resistant
- Integrated molded hinges
Foam-in-place gasket provides protection against dust and water
- Easy modification with standard hand tools
- Eco-friendly polycarbonate can be recycled and reused
