Drilling Explosion-Proof Cabinets. Explosion-proof enclosures feature cast walls up to 1½” thick, and they do not come with standard predrilled holes. If you want conduit entries drilled to your specifications you have two choices: Order them from the factory and wait six weeks, or drop them off at ACES where they’ll be ready in 24-48 hours. ACES is a UL 508A and UL 698A listed control panel builder, and the only shop in the area offering this service.
