Pass & Seymour/Legrand® Introduces Decorator Combination GFCI'S

Syracuse, NY, March 25, 2004 - Pass & Seymour/Legrand, a leading provider of electrical and network wiring devices, today introduced its new Decorator Combination GFCI's, a GFCI that combines SafeLock(TM) Protection with the decorative addition of either a single switch, double switch or LED nightlight.

"We created the new Decorator Combination GFCI to allow homeowners to add some decorative flare to their kitchens, bathrooms and maybe even the kid's bedrooms," said Bill Timmons, product manager at Pass & Seymour/Legrand. "Many homeowners today are looking for style in their homes. These Decorator Combination GFCI's are not only a great safety enhancement in the home, they provide a range of solutions for remodeling bathrooms and kitchens and other rooms."

In response to requests by many contractors declaring the need for up-and-down switching, Pass & Seymour/Legrand designed all Decorator Combination GFCI's with this market-unique feature. The switches are rated for use with a fan or a light, perfect for bath or kitchen vent fans. Pass and Seymour is the first to offer a Two Switch model, providing customers with more remodeling options. The energy-efficient LED nightlight offered with the Decorator Combination GFCI, is a long-lasting light with more than a 20-year life expectancy with no bulbs to change. Furthermore, all decorator combination GFCI's, and are designed to match all other Pass & Seymour devices.

With enhanced resistance to surge, corrosion and electrical power line noise, the Decorator Combination GFCI's offer superior durability and are exceptionally easy to install with side or screw-pressure-plate backwiring for line and load terminals. A trip indicator light on the face of the GFCI makes it easy to spot a tripped condition, and the impact-resistant thermoplastic paddle, face and backbody stand up to constant use. Additionally, two backwire holes per termination add wiring flexibility and more room in the box.
