Weatherproof Sockets (IP54 Rated) and Switches (IP66 Rated) and 20AMP and 40AMP Isolators are ready for use by the Australian Electrical Contractor.

Australia has tough climatic conditions and the Hippo is ready to tough it out in the sun or rain in any environment where switchgear, sockets and switches need enduring protection from the elements. Nearly every job requires a weatherproof install either in residential, commercial or industrial applications.

Our Weatherproof Sockets are IP54 Rated as standard or ZONE 2 Ready - They do not require a cover for ZONE 2 Areas unlike some of our competitors ie Clipsal's WSC227/2* and others not to mention the familiar style of the unit commonly liked across existing Australian installations and preferred by Contractors. Our dollies are also built in a hard form (like the old days) and do not have a rubber surround which from our research is what contractors prefer as they do not deteriorate.

Australian Standard - IP54 for Zone 2 for pools, wet areas and ponds - AS/NZS3000

Contact us for a sample - or ask your local electrical wholesaler.

No need to change out your van – you can make a seamless transition from WSC* to Hippo or whatever weatherproof you use today.
