Speeding up base/plinth assembly

Rittal has launched its new Flex-Block base/plinth system to speed up the assembly of sheet steel enclosure base/plinths. The system features enhanced, fast, more efficient, tool-free assembly of individual components and logistical processes.

The system comprises four identical corner modules and covers made of plastic, plus symmetrical sheet steel side trim panels. The modular design and increased assembly space allow the four corner pieces to be quickly fitted underneath the enclosure. Once the enclosure is configured, the trim panels are simply clipped into position on the base/plinth with just a few actions.

Designed for loads of up to 15,000N, the 100mm high plastic corner modules additionally have hexagonal slots to accommodate adaptor sleeves for stacking 200mm high base/plinths. Levelling feet or twin castors are also accommodated. The system accessories permit tool-free baying of the base/plinth, and may be configured individually for each enclosure panel, for example with cable clamp rails.

The Flex-Block base/plinth system can combine for all sizes in the TS, SE 8 and CM enclosure series, the TP console systems, and the PC case systems. Rittal additionally offer widths in 300mm for the LCP Liquid Cooling Package climate controlled enclosure.
