WASHDOWNPRO Sanitary Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars

When a high level of sanitation is a priority for your installation and thorough cleaning behind your enclosure is a requirement, Electrix® Stainless Steel Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars 🗗 are the ideal solution.

Electrix® patented stand-off mounting pillars are available in three different lengths (0.75 in, 1.95 in and 2.95 in) to suit the requirements of your installation. Fitted with a silicone washer and o-ring, these easy-to-clean pillars minimize potential bug traps which are common with less sanitary external brackets and other mounting options that are available.

The threaded end of the pillar engages with threads at the rear of the enclosure, making them quick and easy to install. These pillars, combined with Electrix® unique Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 Internal Wall Fixing Points (included as part of all WASHDOWNPRO enclosures), ensure that the integral Type 4X / IP69K / IP66 rating of your enclosure is not compromised in any way.

To Install:

  1. Remove the Internal Wall Fixing Point Caps, using a 3/16" (5 mm) Allen Key (sold separately - Electrix® part: AK-5 🗗).
  2. Select the most suitably sized Stainless Steel Removable Stand-Off Mounting Pillars 🗗 to match the desired space needed between the enclosure and mounting surface.
  3. Engage the threaded portion of the pillars with the threaded apertures at the rear of the enclosure, and tighten by hand.
  4. Attach the enclosure to the mounting surface using appropriately sized screws, making sure the head of each screw is countersunk and contained within the Internal Wall Fixing Point Base.

  5. 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.

External Wall Fixing Point Cover Kits

In some circumstances, the installation of a WASHDOWN PRO 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 cleanliness even with these apertures exposed, to achieve the ultimate in sanitation and aesthetics, we recommend using our External Wall Fixing Point Cover Kits 🗗 .
