P&S Unveils One-of-a-Kind Horizontal Steel and Wood Stud Boxes
SYRACUSE, NY (March 2, 2006) - Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, today announced a unique line of 22.5-cubic-inch Horizontal Steel and Wood Stud Boxes. Meant for use with 1/2" or 5/8" wallboard, the Boxes are ideal in any place where space is at a premium.
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. One stabilizer leg and a side stabilizer ensure device rigidity, and the Boxes easily accommodate dimmers and GFCIs.
"The Horizontal Boxes eliminate the time, energy and frustration of constructing phantom studs, and they work well in special areas, such as below kitchen counters," said Tom Roy, product manager for Pass & Seymour/Legrand. "P&S is the only manufacturer that offers Horizontal Box varieties."
Box dimensions are 3.75"x 2.25"x 4" and 3.75"x 2.25"x 3.875".
