General Purpose Enclosures

General purpose enclosures are non-specific storage devices that have been created and designed to house and protect a large range of equipment, in most cases this equipment is electronics. As the name suggests, these general purpose enclosures are fit for general purpose. The enclosures can sometimes be referred to as a "Multi-Purpose Enclosure", this is due to them being used for a different number of functions and multiple purposes.
