What you need to know about generator enclosures

What is a generator enclosure?

Our custom fabricated generator enclosures, which are primarily manufactured using aluminum, are modular buildings offered in a variety of sound attenuation, weather protection, and walk-in configurations. Designed and engineered to provide proper airflow, the generator enclosure offers security, protection, and ventilation for generators against inclement weather, theft, and vandalism.

What are the different types of generator enclosures?

There are several configurations of generator enclosures: weather-protective enclosures, sound-attenuated enclosures, and walk-in enclosures.

Weather-Protective Enclosures

These types of generator enclosures are best for generators that will receive frequent exposure to heavy rain, sun, wind, and snow. A well-built generator enclosure should offer superior protection from the elements without leaks or cracks.

Sound-Attenuated Enclosures

Loud noise for extended periods of time is an unseen danger to health and safety. Our sound-attenuated generator enclosures offer safe solutions by minimizing the noise emitted from your backup generator, helping you meet sound-ordinances.

Walk-In Enclosures

In addition to offering weather protection, sound attenuation, and fireproofing, our walk-in enclosures provide enough space for workers to enter the generator enclosure and perform the necessary maintenance and service on the generator to keep you operationally ready.

What are other generator enclosure design considerations?

Appearance, construction materials, and security are a few additional factors that should be taken into consideration for generator enclosures.

The appearance of a generator enclosure might not seem like an important factor, but they can be visible to the public depending on a project’s location. By selecting the appropriate colors and design features applicable to your project’s specifications, we can custom design and build an enclosure using high-quality, industrial grade materials and equipment that will blend in well with your surrounding environment, while ensuring a clean and professional appearance long-term.

We offer stainless steel as an alternative option for generator enclosures, but we primarily use aluminum as a long-term, cost-competitive alternative that offers exceptional protection with a lighter material. Stainless steel has a higher likelihood of rusting, which jeopardizes not only your generator but the safety of your employees working around electrical equipment, resulting in injuries and added costs in parts and labor.

There are a variety of code and design factors to take into consideration when selecting a generator enclosure.
