The principle use for increased safety enclosures is to house electrical equipment that will not generate an arc or spark during normal operation. They are designed to provide an alternative to flameproof enclosures, and are generally made from sheet steel, fiberglass or die cast aluminum. Increased safety is achieved through the enhancement of insulation values and creep-age and clearance distances above those required for normal service.
