Outdoor electrical enclosures are vital for the running of all of our electrical infrastructural systems. Many people don't realize the importance of them as keeping their electric circuitry safe. Most houses receive electricity as a given without thinking about how it really gets to their home. On most streets you'll usually find one of these enclosures which contain electrical hardware for all of the houses on the alloted street. There are also usually fiber obtic wires which allow the houses to access high speed broadband.
These types of outdoor enclosures clearly need to be both very strong and durable. They must be strong to stop anyone attempting to break in to either steal the hardware or simply to cause damage. They also need to be very durable to be able to able to withstand weather conditions. These include rare and extreme weather conditions such as constant freeze and thawing, as well as high temperatures. But more importantly they have to be able to hold out against regular weather patterns and not just extremes. This means they have to be able to hold out against rain and wind constantly battering against the electrical cabinet.
Since they have to be able to protect the vulnerable hardware within against any number of attackers outdoor electrical enclosures are usually made out of very strong, well welded together metals – usually steel. This means they can last for many years without needing replacement – and more importantly the last thing you want are malfunctioning protective cases causing whole streets to go without the internet, and more importantly power.
