nVent Introduces New Universal Free-Stand Enclosure Portfolio

LONDON–JANUARY 11, 2021– nVent Electric plc (NYSE:NVT) (“nVent”), a global leader in electrical connection and protection solutions, today introduced its nVent HOFFMAN branded Universal Free-Stand enclosure portfolio. Specially designed to reduce overall project lead time while providing safety and reliability during end-use applications, the new portfolio enables panel shop builders and systems integrators to do more business faster.

Designed for flexibility, the nVent HOFFMAN Universal Free-Stand portfolio enables panel builders and integrators to start with simplified base enclosures and customize with accessories and modifications as needed. The portfolio is robust, bayable, and has multiple type ratings with accessories focused on safety and component mounting density to enable faster design, modification, and assembly, while improving control panel safety.

The one-and two-door bayable enclosures allow easier, safer modifications and vastly simpler handling in moving and installing multidoor enclosures of almost any configuration.

Universal Free-Stand enclosures accelerate design and modification with easy-to-choose accessories for large unibody enclosures. The new portfolio:

  • Reduces installation time by up to 30 percent with easily installed barrier panels, side panels, and a false floor as well as panel gliders to aid panel installation.
  • Features six base enclosures with universal type ratings. In-stock inventory can be configured to meet customer needs and help significantly reduce design time.

Mild steel standard base enclosures are available in-stock in North America and can be shipped within three days. Stainless steel base enclosures will soon be available in stock, and currently can be made to order.

"Panel builders and integrators are always seeking new ways to save time and costs without compromising reliability or performance," said Emily DeLozier, nVent HOFFMAN Product Marketing Manager. "With the Universal Free-Stand portfolio, they can use a superior quality product to quickly and more easily address their customers’ equipment protection needs for a wide range of applications and environments.”
