Prevent Water Damage to Electrical Systems with Appleton's New Weatherproof Boxes, Covers and Lamp Holders
ROSEMONT, IL, – Appleton has launched an expanded line of UL listed marine-rated boxes, covers and lamp holders featuring rugged PVC or polycarbonate construction. They are ideal for highly corrosive or wet outdoor areas, such as parking lots, marinas, docks and industrial sites. Their heavy-duty design ensures complete sealing protection with continuous box-to-cover compression and a closed cell foam gasket that prevents dirt, dust or moisture from entering and damaging electrical devices or wiring.
Appleton's expanded line provides electricians, general contractors, maintenance crews, and other professional trades with greater performance and versatility while installing branch circuit wiring, switches, receptacles, GFCIs or lighting in wet locations. In addition to sealing out moisture, they are resistant to heavy impact, mold, extreme heat and low temperature distortion. Contractors will appreciate how the smooth, accurately tapped hubs prevent wire abrasion, and how installation is made easier with formed in-place mounting lugs and the factory-installed sealing gasket. Locking swivel knuckles on the lamp holders enables positive lamp positioning and accurate directional aiming.
The box line is available as gray or white 1-gang, 2-gang, or round boxes with a wide variety of matching covers. Lamp holders are supplied with locknuts, porcelain sockets and internal gaskets for reliability and weather protection. Most of the boxes, covers and lamp holders are individually shrink wrapped, labeled and bar coded for ease of handling and identification.
