We manufacture and stock custom insulation components at two Insulect sites - Melbourne and Brisbane. We make sure we can meet your technical needs and provide timely delivery.

 

 

Are you AS/NZS 61439 Ready?

Do your insulation materials meet the new Australian Standard?

AS/NZS 61439 is the new standard for low-voltage (LV) switchgear and control gear assemblies. There is a 5 year transitional period between AS/NZS 3439 and AS/NZS 61439, which started after the new standard was introduced in May 2016. During this time, compliant boards can be built to either standard. 

We produced a short overview and checklist. Download it below.
