Pass & Seymour/Legrand® Unveils New Line of Steel and Wood Stud Boxes
SYRACUSE, NY (Oct. 24, 2005) - Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, today announced a new line of 22.5-cubic-inch Steel and Wood Stud Boxes for use with 1/2" or 5/8" wallboard.
The Boxes accept eleven #14, ten #12 and nine #10 wires, and the large 22.5-cubic-inch volume makes installation easy. A bracket countersink allows for #8 wafer head or dry wall screws with minimal wallboard bow. The Boxes are classified for 2-hour wall and ceiling fire resistance. The Height Site alignment guide and box levelers center the box and the device at a right angle with the stud.
"The face-mounting brackets allow easy installation from the front and eliminate the need to hammer or screw inside the stud cavity," said Tom Roy, product manager for Pass & Seymour/Legrand. "Both Boxes easily accommodate dimmers and GFCIs, and they're ideal wherever extra volume is desirable."
The Boxes feature a "T" cross section to resist wallboard damage, and two stabilizer legs and a side stabilizer maintain device rigidity during plug insertion and removal. The Wood Stud Box offers hands-free positioning with EZ Grip(TM) - a feature only offered by P&S.
Box dimensions are 3.75"x 2.25"x 4.25" and 3.75"x 2.25"x 4".
