We are proud to announce that the enclosures used in our UL2200 prime power and standby generators have been certified by a classifying engineering firm to withstand winds of up to 180 miles per hour (MPH).
These enclosures are white powder finish coated, sound insulated and wind load certified. They are also equipped with hinged doors for easy maintenance and weather protective seals around all doors. Air intake and air discharge ducts are added and sized to meet the air flow requirement A flexible connector with exhaust insulating ceramic wrap is also included to maintain lower temperatures as well as an aluminized exhaust stack with rain cap.
These units comply with three key building specifications:
* 2014 Florida Building Code (FBC) 5th Edition with 2016 Supplements
* ASCE 7 – Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures
* 2010 AISC – Specification for Structural Steel Buildings
The 180 MPH rating also meets the extremely stringent standards for Florida’s Broward County Risk Category IV for buildings and structures, which is composed of buildings and structures housing essential facilities, such as emergency preparedness facilities, national defense stations, emergency backup stations and other crisis-response locations.
