ASSE Performance Requirements

Overview/ASSE-Performance Requirements

ASSE Standard 1060 In 1996, The American Society of Sanitary Engineering (ASSE) developed the ASSE 1060 industry standard for outdoor enclosures to cover fluid conveying components. Born from the organization's philosophy of "prevention rather than cure," the ASSE 1060 seeks to protect public health and safety by providing performance requirements to safeguard equipment from freezing, tampering, and vandalism. As a result, the ASSE 1060 standard has been adopted by utilities and Water Authority departments across the nation. To this day, the ASSE 1060 remains the water industry's gold standard. Hot Box® ASSE 1060 Certified All Hot Box standard enclosures meet or exceed the test provisions of the ASSE 1060 standard and proudly bear the ASSE 1060 seal. To achieve the certification, Hot Box enclosures must pass numerous independent material and product performance tests.
