Stahlin’s modification program supports customers with uncommon or complex applications.

Stahlin’s modification program supports customers with uncommon or complex applications.

Stahlin Enclosures prides itself in its willingness and ability to meet the enclosure modification needs of its customers. The combination of technologically advanced equipment and a sound procedure for handling the most detailed modifications allows Stahlin Enclosures to those process modifications on time and to the highest quality standards in the industry.

Modifications can be mixed and matched in an endless number of combinations. They can take the form of:

·      Custom mold-in colors
·      Silk screening
·      Custom window sizes
·      Custom cutouts/holes
·      Custom size enclosures
·      UV protection
·      EMI/RFI shielding
·      Other special requests

Custom Mold-In Colors

All colors are in-molded during our in-house material production process, guaranteeing the color will not scratch or peel. In yellow, red, green, blue or other matching colors for your enclosure to stand out in a plant or outdoor location or to match your brand's colors.

Maintaining your look and brand is critical in today’s competitive marketplace. Stahlin has the ability to screen print designs on the enclosure during the production process--saving time and cost for the buyer’s internal staff.

Machining operations, such as: turning, drilling, routing, trimming, sanding, and milling, can be easily performed on composite enclosures. A little planning and understanding of the proper methods of machining composites upfront can have a great effect on the final outcome.

Custom windows and touch screens:
As safety remains a concern, windows allow viewing of controls without the need to access the box inside. Touch panels can be added to Stahlin enclosures for use in many industrial applications by using third party touch screen vendors.

UV Protection

Every Stahlin enclosure has SolarGuard®, a patented, non-halogenated fiberglass system that beats the effects of outdoor exposure. This UV-resistant formula is molded into every enclosure and adds no additional cost.

SolarGuard® outperforms other available SMC formulations by as much as 60% in its ability to retain gloss and color after exposure to concentrated UV light. SolarGuard® is able to reduce the effects of UV degradation—such as surface roughening and fiber blooming.

SolarGuard® meets an NFPA No.101 Class A flame spread index. Fire retardancy, achieved through the use of alumina trihydrate fillers, meets UL94-5V standards---an important aspect of enclosure protection, especially in remote installations.

EMI/RFI Shielding

The interior surfaces of fiberglass enclosures can be coated with a highly conductive nickel coating that provides excellent EMI/RFI shielding. The coating has been tested by an independent test laboratory and provides an average attenuation of 60 dB over the frequency range from 0.01 to 10000 MHz.
