Receptacle covers meet NEC and NEMA 3R requirements

Calbrite stainless steel in-use weatherproof box protects in corrosive and harsh environments.

Hammond, Ind., December 16, 2010—Calbrite has developed a stainless steel single-gang weatherproof in-use box with a lockable cover that is very useful for corrosive and harsh environments such as wash-down applications and wastewater treatment plants. The cast, type-316 stainless steel receptacle cover is fully compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and NEMA 3R requirement.

"We've taken our expertise in corrosion prevention and applied it to a product that is in high demand by our customers," said Matt Westerfield, director of sales and operations for Calbrite products.

The stainless steel in-use box protects electrical wiring in harsh and demanding applications. The locked box feature also makes it ideal for outdoor wiring and high-traffic areas that require durability as well as safety precautions.

The stainless steel weatherproof box is available in a shallow lid model (S60000FVSC), and a deep lid model (S60000FVDC). Both versions are specially designed for use with single-gang and duplex switch and GFCI requirements.

The covers must be mounted vertically and in accordance with all local NEC/AHJ requirements. Calbrite's in-use weatherproof box is made in America and is ARRA-compliant.

The stainless steel in-use box mounts to all Calbrite single-gang junction boxes.
