Arlington Industries’ FBRS4200R heavy-duty, plated steel box with adjustable bracket now has higher weight ratings for fans and fixtures installed in retrofit (existing) construction. The box is rated for a 150-lb fixture or a 70-lb fan when installed on joists spaced 16″ on-center; and 70 lbs for either a fixture or fan on joists spaced 24″ on-center, says Arlington. The 20.0 cubic inch box installs between rafters with 16″ to 24″ on-center spacing, and bracket ends bite into the wood rafter or joist to hold the fan or fixture in place. The product is UL/CSA Listed.
