Schaumburg, IL, October 4, 2022 – Rittal North America, a global manufacturer of industrial and IT enclosures, introduces new Hygienic Design Pushbutton Enclosures and Accessories designed specifically for the high hygiene zone in food and beverage facilities.

Five sizes are available in the hygienic design (HD) pushbutton enclosure line including one-, two-, three-, four-, and six-hole enclosure options that fit standard 22.5 mm pushbuttons and switches. To meet strict food safety regulations and help maintain the highest level of protection, the HD pushbutton enclosures feature:

  • 3° slope on all sides to prevent accumulation of liquids
  • 304 brushed grain, stainless steel
  • Zinc-plated sheet steel mounting bracket
  • IP 66 and IP 69 rated

To round off Rittal’s hygienic line of accessoires, a viewing window, pressure release plug, new alternative cam lock option, and key lockable t-handle have been added.

Rittal‘s hygienic design accessories already include cable glands, wall spacers, leveling feet, hinges, hose-proof hoods, and more to support food and beverage operations.

All hygienic design enclosures and accessories use an FDA compliant, blue silicone gasket which helps in preventing the ingress of contaminents and bacteria while making it easier to identify any potential contaiments left on the enclosure after cleaning. Additionally, the silcone gasket can be easily replaced if damaged.
