Mier Products’ Outdoor Enclosures are made of either durable galvanealed or cold-rolled steel and are painted with an outdoor, powder-coated finish, or out of polycarbonate, non-metallic material. They are designed and manufactured to provide a degree of protection against rain, sleet, snow, ice, dirt and dust. Scroll down to see models and features. For outdoor applications needing temperature control, visit our outdoor NEMA 4 and NEMA 3R Temperature Controlled Enclosures page.

Installation is important in extending the life of the enclosures. Those of our enclosures which carry a NEMA 4 rating have exterior mounting brackets, but have no other holes in order to maintain that NEMA outdoor enclosures rating. Any other holes an installer makes for power, etc. must be made with proper tools, deburred and water-tight fittings used. We also recommend coating the interior of the cut (the newly exposed metal) with Rust-Seal or another type of protection.
Optional E-coating is available for added rust protection of galvanealed or metal enclosures (call if interested). E-Coat has been around for many years, but really began to gain prominence with use in the automotive industry; one of the toughest environments there is. Our outdoor enclosures are exposed to all types of weather, including coastal areas where salt air takes a toll on anything metal. Upper U.S. and Canadian installations also have some challenging weather. Epoxy E-Coat offers protection against corrosion and has illustrated superior results in salt-spray and cycle-corrosion testing. A simple explanation of applying E-Coat calls for our enclosure to enter a bath and be fully submerged where a negative charge attracts positively-charged paint particles. The result is a high-performance thin and tough coating ideal for exterior durability with excellent corrosion resistance. Our standard application of outdoor powder coat paint is then applied over the E-Coat to complete a two-coat finish that offers long-term use.
Depending on the outdoor box you choose, features include: drip shields, water channels, gaskets, with or without knockouts, hinged doors, removable doors, screw covers, external or internal mounting holes, removable back panels, 1/4-turn latches, and tubular cam locks.
