How to Protect Outdoor Electrical Receptacles

How to Protect Outdoor Electrical Receptacles

Take a walk outside and you’ll see people glued to their phones, computers and tablets. Airports have mobile charging stations and trains have electrical outlets in every row to help us recharge devices. Technology is at the center of everything we do.

Outdoor sites—including parks, backyards, carnivals, fairs and outside of commercial buildings— also rely on electricity to power on-site technology. These electrical receptacles need to be protected from the elements—moisture, dust, debris or insects—while still providing easy access to the devices themselves.  Leviton offers a variety of commercial grade solutions that are designed for rugged outdoor conditions. Our covers accommodate standard toggle switches, duplex receptacles, decora GFCI and single receptacle devices.

Whether your project requires a device cover, while-in-use outlet box hood, weatherproof boxes or weatherproof blank covers, we have it all. Click here for more details.

Leviton offers weatherproof device covers and boxes that comply with Section 406.9 of the 2014 National Electrical Code, which outlines the waterproof enclosures in wet and damp locations.
