Description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates generally to enclosure assemblies and, more particularly, to a flexibly arrangeable modular enclosure system.

Enclosures come in a wide variety of styles and orientations and have applications that vary from storage cabinets to corrosion resistant electrical boxes. These enclosures often come in variety of sizes as well as a variety of materials depending, in part, on the intended use of the enclosure. Indoor, non-corrosive environment enclosures are often fabricated from generally lightweight plastic materials whereas electrical cabinets in corrosive or industrial applications are often constructed from a stainless steel material. Regardless of the intended use of the enclosure, these enclosures often come only in a variety of standard sizes. Requiring an enclosure having dimensions other than the provided standard sizes either requires significant modification of a standard enclosure or ordering an enclosure that is then manufactured with the desired specifications. As such, requiring a custom made enclosure having a size other than a commonly provided enclosure requires either, significant time and labor to modify a common enclosure, or a substantial increase in cost associated with a special order enclosure.

The intended use of an enclosure is an additional consideration of enclosure construction. Enclosures generally referred to as electrical boxes generally provide knock-outs for openings through the enclosure housing to allow wire access therein. Forming the knock-outs increases the production time required to form a single enclosure. The knock-outs are also often provided in a variety of standard configurations. Deviation from the standard knock-out orientation often requires significant in-field modification of the enclosure. As such, in-field modification of the orientation of the knock-outs increases the installation time of the enclosure. Additionally, depending on the material the enclosure is constructed, any modification of the enclosure may require special tooling and/or expertise to modify the enclosure.

Other enclosures, constructed from generally light weight plastic materials, lack a structural stability required for many applications. That is, these enclosures often require being supported on a floor and once loaded or filled, must be unloaded or emptied in order to be moved. These enclosures often require a generally flat and/or smooth footing surface in order to maintain the operability of doors that may be connected thereto. Positioning the enclosure on a footing surface that is even marginally non-planar and/or having a rough surface results in the interconnected components of the enclosure being misaligned which results in improper, if not inoperable, association of the individual components of the enclosure such as moveable shelves and enclosure doors.

It would therefore be desirable to have an enclosure system having a plurality of components that are quickly and efficiently assembled, and easily customized to a variety of user selected dimensions and applications.

A joint between edge rail flanges 40 of adjacent edge rails 12 forms one of what are commonly referred to as a half lap joint or a miter joint between adjacent edge rail flanges 40. In those enclosure assemblies 10 where increased frame rigidity is desired, it may be preferable to use corner connector 62 with the half lap joint or miter joint between adjacent edge rails 12 as compared to the butt joint formed when using corner connector 14. Regardless of which corner connector is applied, the rigidity of enclosure assembly 10 is further increased with the connection of side panels 18 thereto.

Similar to the engagement of corner connector and edge rail 12 of frame assembly 16, as shown in FIG. 6, door edge channels 22 and door corner connectors 24 of door assembly 20 are slidingly connected. Door corner connectors 24 include a body portion 70 with a pair of protrusions 72 extending therefrom. Protrusion 72 is constructed to slidingly engage a recess 74 formed in door edge channel 22. A tab 76 is formed between protrusions 72 of door corner connector 24 and is constructed to generally align with a door edge channel flange 78 extending from door edge channel 22. A groove 80 extends along a length of door edge channel flange 78 and is constructed to have door panel 25, as shown in FIG. 1, positioned thereacross.

FIG. 7 shows a cross-section of enclosure assembly 10 along line 7-7 shown in FIG. 1. As shown in FIG. 7, protrusion 52, 66 snuggly engages edge rail 12 between shoulders 48 and each side panel 18 traverses groove 44 of edge rail flange 40 and abuts shoulder 42 of edge rail 12. Groove 44 is constructed to allow for the deposition of a bonding agent, such as glue, therein for fastening each side panel 18 to each edge rail 12.

Each inside edge rail 84 includes a pair of inside edge rail flanges 86 positionable along edge rail flanges 40 of outside edge rail. Each inside edge rail flange 86 of inside edge rail 84 includes a pair of grooves 88, 90. Groove 88 of inside edge rail flange 86 faces edge rail flange 40 of outside edge rail 12 and is configured to receive a bonding agent therein thereby securing each inside edge rail 86 to a corresponding outside edge rail 12. Groove 90 of inside edge rail flange 86 is also constructed to receive a bonding agent therein such that an interior panel 92 of enclosure assembly 10 is securable thereacross.

A channel or chase 94 is maintained between inside edge rail 84 and a corresponding outside edge rail 12 and constructed to allow the passage of wiring therethrough. A cavity 96 is maintained between interior panels 92 and an adjacent side panel 18 of enclosure assembly 10. Optionally, an insulative material may be positioned or injected into cavity 96 thereby forming an insulated enclosure assembly. Jam sections 26 of door assembly 20 include a channel 96 formed along a length thereof.
