Top 5 Reasons To Buy Hoffman HyShed Enclosures

November 5, 2021

Hoffman HyShed enclosures are the industry’s highest-rated total sanitary washdown enclosure solution. The design focus is to protect critical electrical equipment while promoting longer lifecycles of controls and drives. There are plenty of reasons why HyShed enclosures benefit facilities, but five main features separate Hoffman’s product from competing products.

Available In Various Sizes

Ranging from 16 to 48 inches in height, HyShed comes in 23 different standard sizes to fit any facility. The largest enclosure is 48 x 36 x 16 inches and has seven latches. When compared to Hoffman’s closest competitor, HyShed enclosures are more adaptable. Rittal offers just 16 sizes for their Hygienic Design Enclosures.

Robust Hinging System

The internally mounted hinges better equip HySheds to withstand heavy weight loading while maintaining the integrity of the enclosures. Internally mounted hinges reduce bacteria-harboring catch points during washdowns. Each HyShed comes with crevice-free latches and screws, no pre-tapped holes on the back panel, and a replaceable blue FDA-grade silicone gasket.

3-A System Component Qualification Certified

Hoffman HyShed is the first enclosure to have a 3-A System Component Qualification Certificate. The 3-A requirements are focused on the cleanability and durability of products. This certification assures consumers that the products are ready for use in dairy and protein processing facilities. 

National Sanitation Foundation Certified

HyShed is National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified. Products with an NSF certification undergo numerous rounds of testing for material safety, design, construction, and product performance. NSF also guarantees that harmful chemicals won’t seep into the enclosure and contaminate the content inside. HyShed is also IP69K (DIN), IP69 (IEC), and Type 4X certified.

15-Degree Sloped Top

The HyShed Hinge Cover enclosures feature a 15-degree sloped top to prevent fluids or particulates from pooling and maximize back panel space. A sloped top provides an average of 20% more usable back panel space. For smaller screw cover options, Hoffman does offer a 10-degree sloped enclosure. Both types of enclosures give a ton of room for users while minimizing footprint.
