nVent upgrades the locking system for compact aluminum enclosures

As part of our commitment to making it easier for customers to do business, nVent is upgrading the locking system for nVent HOFFMAN compact aluminum enclosures to offer customers easier operation and improved security.

Already in use on nVent HOFFMAN mild and stainless steel floor standing enclosures, the new locking system offers many enhancements and user benefits.

With the new locking systems, an audible security "click" indicates to operators when the enclosure is fully locked or unlocked. In addition, to improve the enclosure aesthetic, the new system comes with a sleek cover that can be customized with a company name or logo, and an improved flush design in which the system's rods are positioned parallel to the door. The system's improved locking rods and catchers also offers a smoother experience when opening or closing the door.

Overall, the redesigned locking system provides operators with an improved, streamlined experience for enhanced ease of use.

Products affected:

  • EKOM - Compact double wall version.
  • EKOM-SW - Compact single wall version.

Aluminum enclosures are commonly used for railways and highways applications.

Customer Benefits:

  • Customizable locking handle.
  • Compatible with floor standing standard inserts.
  • Enhanced security "click" indicator.

Implementation date: Available now.
