Nemaco is very proud to offer you our NEMA 4X enclosures for industrial applications for protecting and housing electrical components in the indoor and outdoor environment. We manufacture NEMA 250 type 4X electrical enclosures follows National Electrical Manufacturer Association(NEMA) standards to ensure quality to our customers. These enclosure series provide corrosion resistance, therefore, stainless steel is more commonly used in enclosures and cabinets in industrial application. Sometimes fiberglass (FRP) or plastic materials might be used in small enclosures or junction boxes for nema 4x. As a general rule, most industrial customers prefer stainless steel since the materials are corrosion resistant and rugged. We also manufacture enclosure stainless steel in many designs. These nema 250 type 4x, sometimes are considered as weatherproof boxes.

TYPE 4X ENCLOSURES PER NEMA 250

Definition: NEMA 4X rating enclosures protect your application from solid objects such as falling dirt, circulating dust, airborne dust, and windblown dust. Similarly, they give protection against ingress of water such as dripping, light splashing, splashing and hose down (directed) water. Per NEMA 250, type 4x boxes provide corrosion resistance.

TESTING REQUIREMENTS

To pass NEMA 4x criteria of UL 50, 50E & NEMA 250 Ratings, enclosures and cabinets need to give protection against hose directed water from fire hose at 65 gal. or 246L / minutes must result no water inside and corrosion testing from Salt Spray at 200 hrs.

Nemaco ensures customer, each of our nema 4x products has been tested in simutalting environment and meet the requirement for protection decribed above.

Alternate Material and Coatings

Nemaco manufactures NEMA 4X Enclosures primarily with quality grades of stainless steel, that provides protection from corrosion. Because the characteristic of stainless steel is not corrosive. However, stainless steel is a heavy material, therefore, we offer other materials that approximately comparative to be NEMA 4x rating (protect from corrosion), powder coating carbon steel and aluminum for corrosion protection as an option for your applications.

Each of the ferrous and non-ferrous raw materials has specific and unique qualities that make an enclosure optimum based on the application, therefore the different materials show several characters and capabilities that make enclosures unique and specifically suited for certain environments and applications.

NEMA 4X Enclosure Stainless Steel

Our stainless steel enclosures for industrial applications are used for control panels, distribution cabinets, and other SCADA applications in both 304 and 316 ss. Nemaco offers type 4X electrical enclosures manufactured per NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturer Association) standards to ensure top quality to our customers.

POWDER COATED ALUMINUM

As mentioned in the previous information, stainless steel is the first choice by engineers and maintenance crews for industrial

cabinets and other industrial applications. Nemaco offers both stainless steel and powder coated aluminum as solutions. Some customers prefer powder coated aluminum instead of stainless steel. Aluminum has much lower weight and therefore is much easier to transport and carry by work crews. 

  • Powder Coated Aluminum (5052, 6061) – Low Weight, Mild Corrosion Resistant 
  • Stainless Steel (Material Grades 304/316) – Strong, Durable, Corrosion Resistant

MATERIALS COMPARISION

  • Stainless Steel (Material Grades 304/316) – Strong, Durable, Corrosion Resistant  
  • Powder Coated Aluminum (5052, 6061) – Low Weight, Mild Corrosion Resistant 
  • FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) – Low Weight, Mostly small junction boxes 

We manufacture electrical enclosures from top-grade carbon steel, Aluminum and we can customize enclosures according to a customer’s specifications. We have a lot of features you can add to the enclosure such as footings, air condition, sun shield, windows and many more. Please check for more information in a table in the last section of this page.
