In every industrial facility operations, safety is very critical. This is why NEMA provides the standards that various electrical enclosures for use in industrial facilities must follow. The main goal of these categorizations is eliminating risks of fires and ensuring staff work in safe and healthy environments. Type 1 enclosures are the commonest in most industrial facilities. They are general-purpose enclosures recommended for indoor operations.The enclosures
are manufactured using strong materials and specially designed to ensure no combustible dust particles can get inside and ignite a fire. However, they are not dust-proof. The enclosures must also feature a good locking mechanism to prevent unauthorized workers from gaining access.According to NEMA, Type 1 enclosures should be used for your industrial or commercial indoor operations in normal atmospheric conditions. Depending on how your industrial facility is and nature of combustible particles, you can select Type 1 enclosures of varying sizes and designs.
