Switchgear enclosures are typically purposed to shield high voltage power systems from overload. For safety reasons, they are normally housed outside a facility and safeguard switchgear equipment from extreme weather and potential vandalism.
Specially designed Switchgear buildings can be provided with a controlled operating environment with built-in climate control, fire suppression systems, sound attenuation, and alarms for advanced protection.
In areas with harsh environments, these enclosures have reinforcement options to provide protection against heavy winds and snow loads depending on your geographical requirements. Switchgear Buildings are designed for each specific geographical area for wind loads, snow loads, and seismic requirements.
Prefabricated Switchgear Buildings are delivered on-site fully assembled and tested. After off loading and setting in place, these enclosures can be up and running same day. Electrical wiring and plumbing are pre-installed prior to delivery to minimize post-installation contracting.
