No water collects on 'dry' enclosure design

Watershed Enclosures from Hoffman are a line of stainless-steel, freestanding, and wall-mount units that prevent accumulation of contaminants by eliminating areas where water can pool. The enclosures are certified by NSF International, which performs standards development and product certification for public health and safety.

Watershed Enclosures from Hoffman are a line of stainless-steel, freestanding, and wall-mount units that prevent accumulation of contaminants by eliminating areas where water can pool. The enclosures are certified by NSF International, which performs standards development and product certification for public health and safety.

Designed for sanitary and wet/acidic environments, Watershed's features include a unique 20° sloped top and a sloped bottom to promote runoff; lift-off doors; industry-preferred contoured latching; bullet hinges that minimize entrapment; and tight-sealing, continuous, foam-in-place gasket. A slanted flange trough collar prevents water from pooling along the top edge of the enclosure opening. The UL 4X-rated Watershed line presently includes 36 new models. www.hoffmanonline.com
