Wiremold offers recessed and flush fire-classified floor boxes
By Alyssa Dalton
April 30, 2014 – Legrand says it has introduced seven Wiremold recessed and flush style floor boxes that have been evaluated, tested, and approved to meet and in most cases exceed UL Fire Classification requirements for a 2-hour floor rating.
Available in both single and multiple-gang versions in steel and nonmetallic fabrications, the floor boxes promise power, communication, and audio/video services into open spaces. These new boxes also accept existing cover plates and service fittings to present a more consistent and aesthetic finish throughout the building, says Wiremold, adding that the stems of steel floor boxes contain intumescent fire-stop material that, when exposed to high temperatures, expands to seal the penetration from flames and heat.
