Rittal is replacing its previous KS series with the new fibreglass enclosures AX and so completely redefining fibreglass enclosure technology. The development is based on Rittal’s technology for sheet steel and stainless-steel enclosures, which can be used to greatly simplify and speed up manufacturing processes in panel building and switchgear manufacturing. Now, for the first time, fibreglass enclosures also feature this system technology. This is a win-win situation for plant constructors:
