What is Weather Resistant?


Weather Resistant is an enclosure method that provides a high degree of protection from rain, snow, windblown dust, splashing and hose-directed water and is undamaged by external formation of ice.

“This type of enclosure provides a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.” 1
