NHP Electrical Engineering Products and Eldon have announced that the colour of their industrial range of enclosures will be changing from RAL 7032 to light grey RAL 7035.
Although Eldon has continued to maintain RAL 7032 as its standard for industrial enclosures, it is becoming apparent that the market would prefer some unification and therefore Eldon will be changing its standard for its industrial range to light grey RAL 7035 (R5 for short) from March 2008.
In anticipation of this change, NHP Electrical Engineering Products has built stock levels of the Eldon range of enclosures to make sure the transition is as seamless as possible.
Those products affected by this change are Multi-Mount wall mount enclosures, Multi-Flex floor standing enclosures, consoles and terminal boxes.
To identify the new colour, NHP Electrical Engineering Products will add R5 to the end of the existing part number (including accessories).
The part number of those products already supplied in RAL 7035 (i.e. computer cabinets) will not change. The outer packaging of all Multi-Mount wall mounting enclosures will carry a separate sticker with the R5 logo, which will also appear on the part number label of all Multi-Flex floor standing products.
NHP Electrical Engineering Products will continue to use the same high quality painting process as before. All Eldon mild steel enclosures are uniquely painted inside and out, using a structured powder coating of up to 80 microns, to ensure maximum protection against corrosion.
