Maritime outdoor solutions

Perfect protection on land and at sea

Secure protection for harsh environments

Outdoor enclosures in the maritime industry

The maritime industry must be prepared to face rough seas. On-board and quayside installations must take stormy waters in their stride. Salt, gales, strong vibrations and shocks, as well as temperature variations are further challenges for outdoor enclosures.

Rittal supports you with a range of different enclosures and matching climate control solutions to keep your electrical equipment safe and dry, however stormy conditions become. The incorporation of standard components means that you receive your chosen Rittal solution within 24 hours and can thus realise fast and reliable protection for all your applications, including

  • Shore-side power supplies
  • Energy distribution for port installations and locks
  • Fuel supplies
  • Crane controllers

Both at sea and on land, resistance to salt-laden atmospheres, humidity and UV radiation is imperative – optimum corrosion and surface protection are here paramount.


Reliability plays an especially important role in the maritime industry, as safety-relevant infrastructure is involved and failures could incur extremely high costs. With a combination of high service durability and exceptionally short delivery times, Rittal meets such demands.

Outdoor Extreme

In the maritime industry, outdoor solutions are often situated in publicly accessible areas and must stand up to extreme weather conditions, the risk of unauthorised access and potentially aggressive atmospheres. The answer to these challenges is a high-end enclosure with an appropriate break-in resistance classification and optimum corrosion protection.
