RACO introduces a line of adjustable mud rings. These new products provide jobsite flexibility and time savings for rough-in electrical work. RACO, part of Hubbell Commercial Construction, provides innovative electrical products to commercial, institutional and residential markets.
RACO’s new mud rings, or plaster rings, provide a quick and easy way to ensure a flush finish for stud-mounted outlet boxes. Perfect for boxes mounted behind drywall or ceramic tile that are thicker or where the depth varies. The inner ring can be adjusted from ½” to 1-3/8″ after the drywall has been installed to match the depth.
Four UL Listed models are offered: One and two gang models for use on 4″ square boxes along with one and two gang models for use on 4-11/16″ square boxes. All models accept standard devices such as switches, duplex receptacles and GFCI devices. These models can also be used as standalone support for low voltage devices. They also work with standard open center brackets.
Two adjustment screws on opposite sides are visible and accessible even after installing the device. The design allows the 2-gang cover to be installed without removing box screws. All screws, including device screws, are inside the ring. This prevents damage from routers used to cut drywall.
The company’s new mud rings are perfect for maintaining code-compliant installations in hospitality, healthcare and multifamily residential applications. They can replace a variety of standard raised covers, saving SKU’s and installation time.
