Self-sealing fasteners optimise NEMA enclosures 21 June 2018

NEMA enclosures are electrical enclosures used in industrial applications. NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) defines the standards for such enclosures to protect against personnel access to hazardous parts and environmental hazards such as water, dust, oil or coolant or conditions subject to corrosive agents.

ZaGO’s fasteners are perfectly suited to meet the requirements of NEMA enclosures as well as the standards of the IEC. With respect to personnel access, ZaGO sells a wide variety of its sealing fasteners with security/tamper proof features, making them extremely difficult to access without authorised tools. The company’s tamper proof recesses include sockets, 6-Lobe, 6-Lobes with pin, spanner and one way slotted fasteners.

Indeed, the company is capable of turning any tamper proof fastener into a sealing fastener meeting both the security and environmental requirements of electrical enclosures.

In addition, it’s self-sealing fasteners set the standard for preventing invasive environmental hazards from intruding into electrical enclosures. The company’s sealing screws are used on a wide variety of electrical enclosures including outdoor commercial lighting protecting LED lamps, ballards and fixtures. These fasteners protect high value equipment out in the field as well as in manufacturing facilities, communications equipment, air filtration and compression systems, as well as security apparatus from outdoor cameras to night vision goggles.

ZaGO Manufacturing Co Inc’s products have become a critical part of the electrical components supply chain protecting enclosures on products produced in the US, the UK, Europe and Asia. It’s parts meet environmental requirements set by international standards including ROHS, REACH conflict mineral requirements and the standards set in California Proposition 65. ZaGO’s self-sealing fasteners are inherently green, manufactured with minimal environmental impact and intended to protect the environment in which they are placed as well as the internal workings of the machinery they protect to minimise waste.
