TayMac introduces new weatherproof electrical outlet kits designed for residential decks. The kits include unique low-profile outlet covers to provide an effective solution for adding power to decks for outdoor lifestyles. TayMac, part of Hubbell Commercial Construction, provides innovative electrical products to industrial, commercial and residential markets.
The TayMac DOCK320 Kit includes a GFCI receptacle, a metal electrical box, and the company’s unique Deck Outlet Cover. This complete kit provides a safe and code-compliant way to add an electrical outlet to any raised deck floor. Power can be placed where consumers will avoid long intrusive extension cords, which pose tripping hazards.
The DOCK320 Deck Outlet Kit is cULus Listed, and both NEC and NEMA 3R compliant. The included Hubbell Pro series 15Amp GFCI receptacle is weather-resistant and tamper-resistant. The gasketed weatherproof 1-gang metal electrical box provides three ½” threaded outlets for sealed connections to power.
The Deck Outlet Cover itself is constructed of heavy-duty PVC. It features a low profile with a textured finish and beveled edge to meet ADA guidelines, reducing the chances of a trip or fall. A wide-opening, easy-access lid covers a roomy 2-3/4″ recessed space to accommodate larger cords and plugs.
For protection while in-use, the cover has a rain chamber and “drip loop” design with wide drip holes. Any water that travels along the cord will drip away without reaching the electrical device. Cord hooks hold cords in place below the lid, to ensure that it closes tight. A pre-attached weatherproof gasket keeps water from entering around the edge of the self-closing lid.
TayMac’s new Deck Outlet Kit is part of the Outdoor Comforts™ line, designed to enhance outdoor living spaces with the same convenience and comfort as indoors. Applications include residential decks constructed of wood or engineered composites that may be exposed to water spray, rain or snow. Suitable for use with lights, fans, and electric appliances.
The TayMac DOCK320 Deck Outlet Kit is available now. Colors include Gray, White or Bronze. Find more information at: www.hubbell.com.
