Product approvals

In the certified Rittal quality laboratory, testing is conducted to all well-known international standards. To meet the requirements of these standards, an enclosure must pass up to 20 different tests.


Rittal products meet the highest internationally recognised quality standards

All components are subjected to the most stringent testing in accordance with international standards and regulations The consistently high product quality is ensured by a comprehensive quality management system. Regular production inspections by...

CE conformity

CE labelling of Rittal empty enclosures

With regard to CE labelling, empty enclosures fall under mandatory labelling in line with the EC Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU based on type testing to DIN EN 62208.

Rittal surface protection

Rittal is using new technologies in surface finishing. Thanks to nano-coating, Rittal products already boast the best possible surface protection and corrosion resistance.

Rittal is continuously developing and testing new techniques to optimise the durability, function and safety of its products. By using nano-coating, the world market leader in enclosure and case technology is now setting new standards in surface technology.
