Calbrite, a manufacturer of stainless steel conduit, fittings and accessories, has developed a stainless steel single-gang weatherproof in-use box with a lockable cover which aims to protect against corrosive and harsh environments, such as wash-down applications and wastewater treatment plants. 

The casted, type-316 stainless steel receptacle cover complies with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and NEMA 3R requirement.

“We’ve taken our expertise in corrosion prevention and applied it to a product that is in high demand by our customers,” said Matt Westerfield, director of sales and operations, Calbrite. “This stainless steel in-use box protects electrical wiring in harsh and demanding applications such as wash-down in food and beverage processing facilities, but the locked box feature also makes it ideal for outdoor wiring and high-traffic areas that require durability as well as safety precautions.”

Available in a shallow lid model (S60000FVSC) and a deep lid model (S60000FVDC), both versions are designed specifically for use with single-gang and duplex switch and GFCI requirements. The covers must be mounted vertically and in accordance with all localNEC/AHJ requirements.
