There’s great news for our company, always attentive to the safety and performance of our products. From today, in fact, our Virdis FF series of filters for electric panels have been certified Type 3R, thanks to their excellent protection from the rain and from the intrusion of solid bodies .
What is Type 3R?
Type 3R, is a certification drawn up and released by the American Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), which identifies the products used in difficult conditions, especially those exposed to the elements and that therefore require degrees of elevated IP protection.
The Type 3R certified products extremely resistant to adverse weather conditions (eg, rain and hail) as in the case of Fandis Virdis filters and filters with fans, for which excellent protection is guaranteed against humidity and intrusion of foreign matter. The protection is also guaranteed by the additional metal grids placed internally to the filter itself.
The Nema 3R classification is divided into categories, especially in regard to accidental contacts of persons with parts of the equipment or protection from external influences on the control box, and our series responded perfectly to all this requirements.
Safety and deterioration protection
In our case, however, we have also thought about how to preserve our products from deterioration caused by atmospheric agents on the outside surfaces: the plastics used for the realization of the filters are in fact equipped with a strong charge of glass fiber in addition to the PC / ABS blend. This addition makes the products much more resistant, even when exposed to the action of aging, dictated by exposure to sunlight or rain.
The benefits of the FF filter (with or without fans) of Virdis Series:
- water protection
- intrusion of foreign bodies Protection
- additional metal grids inside the filter
- Protection against accidental contact
- plastics resistant to atmospheric deterioration
- certification Type 3R
