Worldwide Patented Products by Electrix®

At Electrix®, research and development is ongoing to ensure we maintain our position as the world's leading manufacturer of Stainless Steel Electrical Enclosures and Cable Management Systems.

First introduced in 2003, our unique Internal Wall Fixing Points are a standard feature of many of our enclosures. Saving you time and money on site, it is easy to see why the Internal Wall Fixing Points have been adopted worldwide as the most sanitary and robust mounting solution available for Stainless Steel Enclosures.

As part of our continuous improvement at Electrix®, our new WASHDOWNPRO series of enclosures have all been designed to feature our new and improved Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 Internal Threaded Wall Fixing Points. As was the case with our original model, these Wall Fixing Points allow the enclosures to be installed without compromising the Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 rating as no mounting holes need drilling on site. This prevents the ingress of water and dust into the enclosure body, enhances the wash down suitability of the enclosures as well as saving you both time and money.

To further enhance your wash down installation and to provide you with the ultimate sanitary solution, the improved Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 Internal Threaded Wall Fixing Points also work in harmony with our Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars 🗗.

To Install:

  1. Remove the Internal Wall Fixing Point Caps, using a 3/16" (5mm) Allen Key (sold separately - Electrix® part: AK-5 🗗).
  2. Attach the enclosure to the desired mounting surface using appropriate fixings for the application, making sure the head of each screw is countersunk and contained within the Internal Wall Fixing Point Base.

  3. Refit the Internal Wall Fixing Point Caps, ensuring the o-ring is correctly installed, and tighten to 53.1 lb-in (6 Nm) using an Allen Key.
  4. Unused wall fixing points can be covered externally by using our External Wall Fixing Point Cover Kits 🗗.

Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars

If your installation requires thorough cleaning behind the enclosure, our Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars are the ideal solution to achieve this. The pillars are threaded to allow them to fit perfectly into pre-formed holes at the rear of the enclosure.

External Wall Fixing Point Cover Kits

In some circumstances, the installation of a WASHDOWNPRO enclosure may result in unused wall fixing points remaining visible to users.

Although Electrix® enclosures maintain their Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 rating and uncompromised level of sanitation even with these apertures exposed, to achieve the ultimate in cleanliness and aesthetics, we recommend using our External Wall Fixing Point Cover Kits 🗗.
