Panel Fabrication

We offer 24/7 emergency support for this service!

AET’s panel shop employees are highly trained and skilled in electrical controls and fabrication of panels. For 25 years, we have specialized in custom control panels for the industrial and municipal markets. Our value-added capabilities tied to working side-by-side with our customers streamlines efficiency, minimizes mistakes, and improves the accuracy of a finished control panel. Our team of experts understands that a great control panel is easy to operate, aesthetically appealing, and unfailing when needed and most expected.

Our panel fabrication begins with a Design-Build collaborative customer approach – building from an initial concept through final completion. Our employees use ePLAN software and its efficient engineering techniques in our panel designs. We calculate heat loads and environmental settings in the sizing of every panel. We pride ourselves on understanding our customers’ critical business needs while solving tough electrical control challenges to streamline production processes while meeting UL and industry standards.

We are a certified UL508a and UL698a panel shop. What does this mean to our customers? A UL508a and UL698a certification ensures that AET designs and fabricates control panels that meet the standard for industrial panels and use in hazardous locations for all industrial, municipal, or custom applications. Our UL certification complies with nationally recognized safety standards. Only a certified panel shop can apply the UL mark with confidence to the products they build:

A few of the requirements to be a UL508a and UL698a compliant panel shop:

  • Components: Critical components in panel design must be UL certified and from trusted sources.
  • Circuits: Design-Build process must include the required circuit protection to avoid electrical shock to anyone working in the panel.
  • Labeling: Components and conductors are required to be labeled to the UL508a and UL698a standards for straightforward identification.
  • Spacing: The UL508a and UL698a panel design must include the proper required electrical spacing for safety and hazardous reasons.
  • Regional Electrical Codes: Panels must be in full compliance with regional electrical codes while meeting design requirements.

AET personnel are trained to the UL standard and must recertify annually. With the UL Certification, AET’s panel shop can build industrial, municipal, and custom enclosed panels and other associated equipment that may include control circuits, relays, breakers, switches, lights, and push buttons. The UL mark states to our customers with confidence that AET’s industrial panel has a robust design that meets the installation and safety requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC).

Our UL698a certification states to our customers with confidence that we can design and fabricate hazardous location control panels. This certification covers industrial, municipal and custom panels for installation and use in Class 1 and Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations. As part of every design and installation, AET personnel provide control drawings to assure functionality, safety, durability, and proper connections.
