Outdoor multibay, multiaccess enclosure

NEMA Type 3R

The multibay version of the AP INDEPENDENCE features front and rear doors on each bay for easy access to equipment inside.

And those dual access points come in handy, considering how much storage space you’ll find inside–up to 84 RU of equipment rack space in the largest dual-bay version! In addition, the racks are versatile and can be set to 19” or 23” to accommodate your equipment just right. This makes the INDEPENDENCE suitable for virtually any capacity needs.

More than just large, the AP INDEPENDENCE is a full integrated enclosure solution–it comes prewired with power receptacles and a ground terminal. You can also choose a number of accessories, from climate control systems to additional rack rails to an isolated battery compartment and more, to meet your own unique application needs.

The AP INDEPENDENCE is built to be extra tough and durable to protect your valuable equipment inside. The exterior is constructed of corrosion-resistant, aircraft-grade aluminum with proven powdercoating.
