The Apparatus Cabinet, also known as a Location Case is rated at IP55 and is available in two sizes: full width (1064mm - as shown here) and half width (628mm). The larger (full width) cabinet has a pair of full height lockable doors front and rear whereas the smaller (half width) version has a single full height lockable door front and rear. Locking is achieved by fitting a customer supplied padlock to the heavy duty lever has p/swing handle located centrally on the door.
The cabinet interior is ventilated by convection from the open base through slots positioned above the front and rear doors.
The base is normally closed on site by the use expanding foam in the cable ducts plus the addition of horticultural water absorbing beads which assist in the extraction and drainage of condensation from inside the cabinet. These beads are considerably lighter to carry than pea shingle, if it is necessary to man-handle over any distance, e.g. along railway tracks.
The bases of the cabinets are pre-configured to match Network Rail pre-cast concrete blocks Nos.: BRS-SC 31 & 32.
The Cannon Mark-2 Telephone Stump Box is of a traditional single-skinned proven design that continues to be a product of choice in a buoyant renewals market.

It can be supplied fitted with a Krone A100 or A200 copper termination box, together with a galvanised steel support framework and associated cable management brackets, or it can be customised to accept other equipment.

The Cannon Fibre Optic Signal Cabinet is a single-skinned cabinet that was originally designed for back mounting on a railway overhead signal gantry. The rear mount brackets make it ideal also for wall mounting and the IP55 rating makes the enclosure ideal for terminating fibre optic or copper cables as well as providing a suitable environment for cable jointing.
A quick-release rugged stainless-steel door stay retains each door securely in the open position, whereas 2-point door locking rods are secured in the locked position by a heavy duty swing handle designed to accept a Network Rail padlock.
