Synergy electronic enclosures from OKW feature both plastic and aluminium for added strength and versatility. Typical applications include medical and therapeutic systems, measurement and control technology, home automation, peripherals, building services electronics and more.

Synergy is a range of 36 individual enclosures with a very high-quality surface finish. The design is suitable for modern high-value handheld, desktop and wall-mounted electronics equipment.

Synergy features OKW’s fast-connect system based around four internal assembly pillars that hold each enclosure together.

The glass-reinforced polyamide pillars snap into the recessed top panel, locate the assembly extrusion and are fixed to the bottom part with four stainless steel Trox T10 anti-tamper screws. Several pillars can be snapped together to create custom heights in 5mm increments (on request).
