Rittal Launch New Plastic AX Enclosures

After more than 30 years, Rittal is revolutionising the field of plastic enclosures and complementing its AX series of sheet steel and stainless steel enclosures. With the plastic enclosure AX, Rittal has now combined the benefits of a sophisticated system technology with those of an extremely robust material to produce a unique enclosure series.

The new plastic enclosure AX stands for maximum simplification, speed and configuration freedom, while at the same time meeting the highest demands in terms of safety and robustness. Whether in the workshop or outdoors exposed to the elements – the plastic enclosure AX weathers all extremes.


  • 14 different enclosure variants, with or without viewing panel
  • Symmetrical layout means the enclosure is easily rotated through 180°
  • Double seal with an integral rain protection strip on the top and bottom edge of the door to protect the seal from dust and rainwater
  • Fibreglass-reinforced plastic with a high level of UV resistance


  • Wall mounting brackets are easily secured from the outside while also retaining the UL approval
  • The pole clamp may be screw-fastened directly into the external threaded inserts
  • Ideally suited for outdoor applications

Mounting Plate

Door Installation
