Leviton Powermount Pre-Fabricated Commercial Wiring Assemblies Speed Installation of Box-Mounted Devices

Press release date: May 21, 2009

System makes fast work of electrical device installations in new construction projects

Little Neck, NY, May 21, 2009 - Leviton's industry-leading PowerMount(TM) line of pre-fabricated electrical wiring assemblies significantly reduces wiring time and the associated costs of installing a wide range of box-mounted electrical devices in commercial construction projects. Consisting of pre-assembled electrical boxes, horizontal wall mount brackets and vertical floor mount brackets, the PowerMount commercial wiring system installs during rough-in to make fast work of switch, receptacle, GFCI and other box-mounted wiring device installations.

When used in conjunction with Leviton's Lev-LokŪ modular receptacles, a line of wiring modules with wire leads that snap into rugged duplex receptacles using solid brass locking connection pins, contractors can dramatically streamline receptacle installation to substantially accelerate project completion times. This makes their installations more efficient and profitable.

"Our research indicates that prefabricated wiring systems are the most effective way to complete projects faster," said Eileen McGlone, Director of Marketing for Leviton's Commercial and Industrial business. "Using prefabricated, preassembled components offers installers substantial cost-savings, especially on large projects where repetitive layouts are common. Completing projects faster reduces a contractor's total project costs."

Eight popular stocking configurations are available for easy ordering, and users can readily configure custom assemblies using a simple catalog numbering system which is available in the printed product brochure, downloadable from the Leviton website at www.leviton.com. A 5-minute video describing the PowerMount system is also available on the commercial section of the website.
