Calbrite, the leading brand of stainless steel conduit, fittings, and accessories, has developed a stainless steel single-gang weatherproof in-use box with a lockable cover that is ideal for corrosive and harsh environments such as washdown applications and wastewater treatment plants.

The casted, type-316 stainless steel receptacle cover is fully compliant 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 for Calbrite products. “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.”

The stainless steel weatherproof box is available in a shallow lid model (S60000FVSC), and a deep lid model (S60000FVDC). Both versions are specially designed for use with single-gang and duplex switch and GFCI requirements. The covers must be mounted vertically and in accordance with all local NEC/AHJ requirements. Calbrite’s in-use weatherproof box is made in America and is ARRA-compliant.

The stainless steel in-use box mounts to all Calbrite single-gang junction boxes.
