In many areas of engineering, new products appear regularly, but it is not often that there is something worth shouting about in the world of enclosures. However, Somerset firm Willsher & Quick believes that its new free-standing enclosure will be the envy of rival manufacturers for some time to come.
The Access range dispenses with the traditional design of four corner uprights: instead the whole framework is supported by two centrally positioned vertical extrusions. Access and security are combined in a design which enables the user to declad the whole structure starting from lockable doors on the front and back. Once a door has been unlocked, twin side panels can then be removed using quick release catches.
The design offers obvious benefits to both installers and end-users. The open-frame structure permits all round accessibility, making cabling and baying of cabinets relatively easy. All door frames and shelves are vented to assist internal convection, and a range of accessories can be introduced to meet specific customer requirements.
