Rain Hoods

Rain Hoods

IP Enclosures provide a range of standard rain hoods for steel and stainless steel electrical enclosures.

Why does an electrical enclosure need a rain hood?

Rainhoods are required to prevent settling and building up of liquids, corrosive solids, minerals, dust, dirt and debris on top of an electrical enclosure. If corrosive liquids and solids settle and build up on top of an electrical enclosure, the integrity of the electrical enclosure coating and material may be compromised which may lead to corrosion and ingress of liquids and solids into the enclosure. Without maintenance, this may compromise internal electrical components and could increase risk of electric shock.

Rainhoods are an excellent choice for retrofitting onto electrical enclosures with a flat roof or for new applications when a sloped roof electrical enclosure is not feasible.

IP Enclosures Rainhoods are easily fitted onto IP Enclosures electrical enclosures. All IP Enclosures electrical enclosures are manufactured with nutserts to accommodate optional rain hoods without drilling. This ensures that the IP rating is maintained. IP Enclosure Rainhoods are provided with necessary fasteners to ensure fitting onto new or existing electrical enclosures is quick and easy.

Materials and Fabrication of Electrical Enclosure Rain Hoods

Cutting, pressing and full continuous seam welding using precision automated manufacturing equipment ensures accuracy and consistent high quality.

Steel rain hoods are fabricated using 1.2mm galvanised steel sheet. UL approved epoxy polyester powder-coated with a textured RAL7035 finish to 80-120 micron average thickness. Coloured rain hoods are available if required.

Stainless Steel rain hoods are fabricated using 1.5mm Grade 316/316L Stainless Steel.
