NewBasis enclosures include the box and cover, and are shipped assembled. They typically include 3/8″ stainless steel bolts and brass nuts cast into a ‘floating nut’ box with integral drain holes.  Enclosures also come with a standard drop-in nameplate.

Additional assembly options include racks, mouseholes, EMS markers, pulling eyes, knockouts, and conduit holes.

Can you describe the composites you use?2016-12-04T04:06:17-08:00

NewBasis manufactures products out of Polymer Concrete, which uses a high strength, highly corrosion resistant polymeric resin as a binder instead of cement. Polymer Concrete exhibits mechanical properties that are 2-3 times stronger than conventional concrete, enabling us to design and form lightweight, high performance parts.

NewBasis also manufactures products out of high strength fiberglass. Fiberglass has an even higher strength to weight ratio than Polymer Concrete.
