NEMA 3R Rating

Most often used to protect wiring and junction boxes in outdoor applications, NEMA 3R enclosures are built to protect their contents from snow, sleet, rain and external ice when used outdoors, and guard against dripping water in indoor applications. Some NEMA 3R cabinets are equipped with padlocks, but they generally don't have gasketing on sealing surfaces.
