Adjustable Horizontal Outlet Box
Arlington’s new single-gang horizontal 21.0 cubic inch IN/OUT Box is designed for countertops, backsplashes and anywhere installers need a horizontal outlet. Developed for new construction, it’s preset for a ½-inch wall, but adjusts to fit a finished wall up to 1-1/2-inches. It works well in those situations where final wall thickness is not known, such as with tile, or double drywall. The design eliminates setback boxes and users can adjust the depth before or after wall is finished.
