A Project Engineer's Handbook - Five Custom Enclosure Design Considerations

safetcover_design_cover.pngSafe-T-Cover announced today publication of a new engineering and design resource for project managers, supply houses and design engineers seeking fully customizable enclosure or shelter solutions for industrial equipment.  

“Too often stock type solutions force engineers into compromising on enclosure design” comments Craig Carmon, president.  “But we’re engineers and we understand each project is an engineering challenge in addition to a series of commercial considerations - we want to help engineers understand the range of options they have, and how to design the ideal custom equipment enclosure.”

The guide provides an overview of five key design considerations including:

  • size and strength
  • climate control
  • aesthetics and protection
  • access and maintenance
  • application flexibility

Each section offers insights into what’s possible and why it’s important.  The insights extend the typical industry focus on “freeze protection” to a variety of other considerations and open up the range of applications substantially.  Traditionally used for backflow assemblies, valve boxes and pump houses, fully customizable equipment enclosures can be adapted for a variety of other applications including equipment protection, noise abatement, vandalism and theft deterrence and climate control.

Traditionally enclosures have been a “check the box” component of water systems.  Drawings will often show a “box” or refer generically to a cover.  Consequently engineers have often assumed that their only viable options were stock enclosures. That’s no longer the case, and modular design means that cost and lead-time are all negligible considerations when designing the right enclosure for an application.

“The biggest long-term benefit is ease of maintenance” notes Safe-T-Cover National Sales Manager and industry veteran Al Adams.  “Designed right, around the application, a custom enclosure ensures that teams have ease of access for preventative maintenance and full access, including through the roof, for break-fix repair.”

If equipment is worth protecting - it’s worth protecting properly.  With a customized application specific solution.  Engineers now have the planning guidelines necessary to ask the right questions and demand the right features to optimize each enclosure for its application.

The new engineering resource guide is available for free download.  Supply houses, OEMs and distributors interested in providing the guide to their clients and prospects should contact Craig Carmon to discuss co branding the content.
