Safely housing a power supply

  1. I'm building a 3-d printer, which will be driven by a smoothieboard. This needs a 24V power supply. I've bought the one shown below:

    What I don't know is how to house this safely. I think there's something called ferrules I should be using to connect wires to those screw contacts? But I can't just have a mains lead splitting into two wires and going straight into those terminals, surely? That would still leave a bit of bare wire exposed as a hazard.

    How did other people house these? Is there some kind of standard enclosure I can get?

    I also bought a 'kettle-lead plug' with a switch and fuse. Again, I presume I can get some kind of enclosure to fit these to, but from where?
