Metal Cabinets, Enclosures and Brackets

The team at McWade have been manufacturing cabinets, enclosures and brackets to our customers’ specifications since 1997. We follow the KISS approach to design (“keep it simple, sucker”); Though intricate products can be a joy to look at they are often expensive and hard to maintain.

We re-use existing knowledge and proven manufacturing techniques to shorten the time taken to develop new projects. This also ensures solid, durable items for your application.

Electrical Reticulation

All our electrical distribution boards are manufactured in compliance with SANS 10142. Each product is serialised and can be traced through our systems. We can assist you in creating electrical power distribution solutions. Let us assist you in creating electrical power distribution solutions.
