Emerson Appleton GRTS Series junction boxes
By Anthony Capkun
March 3, 2022 – With the addition of the Appleton GRTS Series to its line of junction boxes, Emerson aims to provide electrical contractors with a “versatile, easy-to-install solution” for stanchion-mounted lighting applications, as well as any general raceway needs, for cable or conduit.
The mounting foot design enables easier installation when mounting to brackets, trays, walls, columns, etc., says Emerson, while the box provides enough space inside for accessing, splicing and maintaining wires. Meantime, a new cable-attached cover eliminates a drop hazard. Factory-installed options include 10 AWG-capable terminal blocks, and a drain for areas requiring control over condensation and moisture build-up.
The GRTS junction boxes can be installed inside and out, in classified hazardous Div 1 and Div 2 locations, withstanding rain, wind-blown dust, snow, and sleet.
