Electrical cabinets and sheet metal enclosures

When searching for a manufacturer of electrical cabinets and enclosures you’ll want to find an experienced company that is able to deliver a high-quality product at the best possible price. At Hitherbest, we have considerable experience in the fabrication of electrical cabinets destined for a range of applications, including industrial installations, and can advise our customers how to optimise their designs for production, to keep their margins competitive. We also carry ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, which indicates our commitment to quality and customer service. All in all, with over 30 years in business and an experienced team to assist at every stage of the project, we are your ideal manufacturing partner.

Designed to perform

Often electrical cabinets must conform to strict technical standards, so we understand that any cabinet design must be accurate from the outset. At Hitherbest we have a dedicated in-house design and programming team, who are experts in CAD, and will work with you to ensure that your design is both fit for purpose and optimised for production. Our team will help you to ensure that your product is fully regulation compliant, whilst reducing manufacturing time and costs.

No matter how complex your project requirements, you can trust our team to ensure that the end result is a high-quality cabinet that exceeds your expectations.

Advanced punching facilities

Our advanced sheet metal punching facilities allow us to create a range of punched elements for electrical cabinets and enclosures including ventilation grilles, display mounts, component slots, fuse and racking mounts, cable inlets and outlets.

We operate two Trumpf Trumatic punch press machines, each with a bed size of 2.5m x 1.25m, allowing us to punch sheet steel up to 4m in length and 6mm thick.

We also have a vast range of punch tools available on site, allowing us to create even the most complex features including louvers, knockout forms and stand-offs.

Accurate folding & forming

With three Amada Press Brakes at our disposal, we are able to fold 4m sheets of metal with a maximum press weight of 170 tonnes. Using these precision machines, we can form an electrical cabinet or enclosure to your exact specifications, within the strictest of tolerances. Furthermore, our quality control processes are designed to ensure the structural integrity of each cabinet that we manufacture, so that you can have confidence that they are as robust as possible.

Most electrical cabinets are powder coated. This provides a durable, protective finish that is able to withstand the toughest of conditions and survive heavy use. Hitherbest boasts a recently refurbished powder-coating line and box oven that are among the most precise and efficient available, ensuring that each cabinet we manufacture has a superior finish. Our GEMA Optiflex spray painting guns feature Super Corona technology, which improves the penetration of powder into corners, making them particularly suited to the manufacture of electrical cabinets.

We carry a range of standard RAL colours in stock, as detailed on our Colour Reference Guide, and are able to order others as required.

Final Assembly

With a dedicated assembly area, Hitherbest is also able to put the finishing touches to your electrical cabinet. Our experts have experience in sourcing non-metal parts and can combine these with metalwork in-house, allowing us to take care of the final assembly of your cabinet for you.
