PROLINE and GL66 ranges to be phased out


To make it easier and more convenient for customers to identify and select the protection solutions they need, we are streamlining our portfolio to modular floor standing enclosures, wall mounted enclosures and terminal boxes. We will be phasing out the PROLINE and GL66 enclosure ranges as of December 31, 2021.

The highly recommended substitutes for each of these ranges in our global product portfolio are as follows:

  • The MCS-MCD modular combinable floor standing enclosures to substitute the PROLINE range.
  • The MAS-MAD and ASR-ADR wall mounted enclosures to substitute the GL66 ranges.
  • The STB-SSTB terminal boxes to the GL66 terminal boxes.

During the interim transition period, we will work closely with customers to provide support. Below you will find more details.
