What is the fingersafe rating for Powerpact B frame breakers?

Issue:
Is the B frame breaker finger-safe?
Do Powerpact B-frame breakers have a finger safe rating?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Powerpact B Frame

Resolution:
The standard Powerpact B frame circuit breaker does not provide fingersafe protection.
However when an optional long terminal shield is added to 2p, 3p, or 4p breakers, it then has a rating if IP40.
The "4" indicates protection against solid objects greater than 1mm, and "0" indicates there is no protection against liquids.
Following are the part numbers of the long terminal shields.
