Connection unit is high-temperature-resistant and pre-mounted in the FireBox. Plug-in seals make cable insertion particularly quick and easy. OBO FireBox also comes with an internal fuse that protects each electrical function area separately.

Along with supplied bolt ties, connection unit of the OBO FireBox is approved for mounting on concrete, masonry, calcareous limestone and brick.

Fire Resistant Housing

Housing of the junction box is made of halogen-free thermoplastic polymer. It is impact and breakage resistant with high protection rating of up to IP 66.

FireBox lid can be fastened quickly by a simple 90° turn of the corner screws.

Benefits of the new T Series Junction Box
