Leviton Extra Duty While-in-Use covers offer outdoor protection



July 7, 2014 – Leviton has introduced Extra Duty While-in-Use covers designed to protect wiring devices from inclement elements while boasting easy access to receptacles.

Available in both horizontal and vertical configurations, the non-metallic covers promise to guard against moisture, debris and insects in various outdoor electrical applications without breaking or cracking. The covers are in compliance with the 2014 National Electrical Code Section 406.9(B)(1) for “Extra Duty” application hoods and are cULus listed. The standard opening accommodates Decora GFCI devices and additional adapter plates are included for duplex and single receptacle openings. The device also includes two inserts to cover the circular cord openings and prevent insects and debris from entering the cover while not in use.
