Why get bogged down with enclosures needing RoHS compliance? Fibox has moved quickly to help you comply with the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) initiative. All Fibox USA enclosure families, in polycarbonate, ABS, aluminum, and fiberglass meet RoHS compliance. By specifying Fibox enclosures, you speed final compliance of your market ready products.
Why RoHS Enclosures?
By July 1, 2006 all finished electrical and electronic products, for sale in European markets, will need to be RoHS compliant. For these products to meet this requirement, their constituent components, including your electrical enclosure, must also be RoHS compliant.
Fibox realized early that while RoHS did not directly apply to electrical enclosures, the intent of the Directive was to force all component manufacturers to be (or become) responsible suppliers of RoHS compliant products. Fibox products marketed in North America were RoHS compliant prior to 2006. In Europe, Fibox will be fully compliant with the RoHS directive prior to July 2006.
The RoHS Directive of January 27, 2003 restricts the use of certain hazardous substances within new electrical and electronic equipment introduced onto the EU market from July 1, 2006 (except certain applications that are listed in the Annex of the Directive). The restricted substances are lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
