These NEMA 3R receptacle covers ensure compliance with 2005 NEC Article 406.8 (B) (1) which requires that 15 and 20 ampere, 125 and 250 volt receptacles installed in a wet location have an enclosure that is weatherproof whether or not the attachment plug cap is inserted. They also meet the 1999 NEC Article 410-57(b) and are designed to meet the 1999 NEC Article 210-60(b), which requires that receptacles installed behind beds in hotels and motels be protected with a suitable guard.
All covers are shipped with gasket, mounting screws, base and cover assembly and patented inserts. The Flexi-Guard series provides inserts for a variety of applications; 16 for the WP3100/WP1100 single gang series and 70 for the WP1200 two gang series. The single gang Flexi-Guard models are all designed to mount horizontally or vertically. The patented insert design ensures flexibility in the field by simply inserting the proper insert into the base and cover assembly. The two gang Flexi-Guard models utilize six “split” inserts which create virtually any dual device combination, as well as providing additional flexibility because the inserts can be rotated 90, 180 or 270 degrees. This provides coverage for horizontally or vertically mounted devices as well as “left hand” or “right hand” applications without removing and switching the two installed devices.
The “jumbo covers” WP1150C, WP1250C, WP1050 and WP1050G provide protection for a single large cord set (up to 3/4" dia.) for portable spa heaters and other heavy duty applications. A lockable hasp is provided on selected models. The hasp accepts up to .315" (8 mm) diameter shank.
