It doesn’t take many subtle tweaks to create a housing that’s unique to your product (even though the enclosure started life as a standard model).

But there is also a third way – a semi-bespoke enclosure. This is very unusual indeed. We don’t get many requests for these (yet) but we suspect that you’ll be intrigued once you’ve discovered the benefits. Here is a rare example of one such ‘hybrid’ enclosure…
