  1. Protection from elements including wind, rain, cold temperatures and warm temperatures
  2. Protection from theft or vandalism
  3. Improved aesthetics, as a covered enclosure looks better than an exposed piece of equipment

Maybe you need to cover a pump, a compressor, a pressure reducing valve, or flow meters. There are a handful of things to consider and this checklist is designed to walk you through all the necessary steps for designing and buying a custom enclosure. It's quick and easy and the whole list is only a few pages long. Check off what you need and take notes as you follow the steps.

You'll find details and instructions for what to do for each of these sections.

  1. Determine the protection you need
  2. Measure your equipment and properly size the enclosure
  3. Consider needs related to ongoing maintenance and equipment repair
  4. Think about the extras
  5. Collaborate on the design with manufacturer
  6. Issue the purchase order

This checklist provides an actionable process to follow for the best enclosure design. You may find there are more options than you initially thought, or realize your initial choices are missing something. The custom enclosure design checklist will save you time and help you get exactly what is needed.
