Thorlabs' enclosures provide a protected space for instruments that are sensitive to temperature, light, and acoustic vibrations. Our enclosures are made from our 25 mm rails and feature panels made of black hardboard or plexiglass, which are held in place by the rail channels. Each is designed with an internal height of 12" (30 cm), and is available in lengths and widths ranging from 9" to 21" (22.5 cm to 52.5 cm). They ship partially assembled and can be fully assembled in less than 10 minutes using a 1/8" (4 mm) balldriver or hex key (not included). Like any assembly based on 25 mm rails, our enclosures are completely customizable using the parts shown in the Construction Rail Accessories table above.

Included Parts List*
Rails XE25 25 mm Rails
Corners RM1G Construction Cubes
Panels TB4 Black Hardboard
Screws Low-Profile Channel Screws

* Breadboard sold separately.

Breadboard Mountable
The corners of our stock enclosures are positioned such that the 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes in the rail ends align with the counterbores in our MB Aluminum Breadboards (sold separately). Please consult the Suggested Breadboards tables below to ensure the proper match.

Sliding Door Option
The black hardboard or plexiglass enclosures optionally include an assembly on one side that provides access to the interior. It consists of two overlapping sliding doors and a bottom-located slide track, as shown in the image above. The tops of the sliding panels fit into the rail channel of the upper rail. Plastic handles that bolt into the sliding panels are included.

 accessories for assemblies made of 25 mm rails include corner cubes and brackets, T-Nuts, low-profile channel screws, breadboard mounting accessories, and rail joiners. In addition, we offer optical enclosures, enclosure accessories, and "do-it-yourself" tools like taps, tap guides, and drill guides for home-built XE25-based constructions.

 

Standard Enclosures

   * Black Hardboard or Plexiglass Walls
   * Three Size Options

Our standard enclosures feature either black hardboard panels that block stray light or plexiglass panels for applications that are not light sensitive. All our stock enclosures are designed with an internal height of 12" (30 cm). The roof ships preassembled; a 1/8" (4 mm) balldriver or hex key (not included) is required to complete the construction.

The corners of our stock enclosures are positioned such that the 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes in the rail ends align with the counterbores in our MB Aluminum Breadboards (sold separately).


Enclosures with Door Assemblies

    * Black Hardboard or Plexiglass Walls
    * Sliding Side Panels with Rigid Plastic Handles

Our enclosures with door assemblies feature black hardboard or plexiglass panels and a sliding door assembly on one side. This assembly consists of two overlapping doors with plastic handles that slide along the channel of the rail above and the track bolted into the breadboard below. The roof ships preassembled; a 1/8" (4 mm) balldriver or hex key (not included) is required to complete the construction.

The corners of our stock enclosures are positioned such that the 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes in the rail ends align with the counterbores in our MB Aluminum Breadboards (sold separately).
