ISCO’s UL Enclosures Can Withstand Hurricane Conditions

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), “Hurricane Katrina was the single most catastrophic natural disaster in U.S. History. The storm devastated a 90,000 square mile area, which is roughly the size of Great Britain. The storm also resulted in the largest displacement of Americans in our nation’s history, forcing more than 270,000 into shelters after landfall.” Numerous businesses were left without power and had no backup system in place. 

The International Supply Company’s (ISCO) UL Enclosures provide an engineered and robustly constructed shelter for this much-needed backup power to withstand severe environments, such as those created by hurricanes.

Natural disasters are unpredictable and can strike anywhere, sometimes with little to no warning. Being prepared for these events with a protected standby power system is the only true solution for maintaining continuous power, and for keeping your facilities safe and functioning during and after these unforeseeable disasters. Hurricane Katrina is an example of the widespread damage to regional infrastructures and energy supplies that natural disasters can impart. Facilities equipped with ISCO UL Enclosures, impervious to wind, floods, and fuel supply disruptions, can weather these events and help avoid costly shutdowns.

ISCO’s UL Enclosures are engineered and constructed from formed carbon or galvanized steel for superior structural integrity. With a wind rating up to 150mph and weather protection, the UL Enclosures are effective in most weather conditions. This structural strength, coupled with a sound attenuated design to reduce the impact of noise on the environment, creates a structure that is both functional and eco-friendly.

ISCO’s UL Enclosures are also IBC labeled and compliant with the state codes and regulations where the enclosure is to be located. ISCO’s line of dependable UL Enclosures accommodate a wide range of power supplies from 54KW to 4500KW to meet your specific needs.  Unpredictable storms and floods are a major cause of standby power system failures, but inadequate power system maintenance can also be a factor. ISCO’s UL Enclosures mitigate the risks associated with dead starting batteries, old diesel fuel, and improperly maintained electrical equipment. Sheltering power equipment is vital to keeping your business running during emergencies, and ISCO’s UL Enclosures provide the necessary protection to keep your business running.
