Carlon Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extender
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Carlon® Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extender from Thomas & Betts provides a flush finish for electrical boxes that are installed too deeply in the wall, a situation which arises often during remodeling. It also provides a one-piece solution that can be used on a single- gang box, or combined with other Carlon® Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extenders for multi-gang applications.
“Encountering electrical boxes that are installed too deeply in the wall is a common problem for remodelers, complicating a flush finished installation,” said Chad Smith, vice president, product management, at Thomas & Betts. “The Carlon® Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extender is designed to correct this problem, as well as address multi-gang extensions, which is a problem that previously called for expensive and hard-to-find multi-gang extenders. Now, installers in the field will always have the right size extender at hand.”
The Carlon® Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extender features an adjustable mounting depth with a maximum extension of one inch for flexibility in installation, and works with most single- and multi-gang boxes and devices. By providing a single solution for single- and multi-gang extensions, it eliminates the need to stock multiple SKUs.
Other features include an innovation that simplifies installation by eliminating the need for trimming. It is UL listed and compliant with NEC Article 370-20. The Carlon® Non-Metallic Single- or Multi-Gang Box Extender includes two 6-32 by 1 ½-inch screws for each extender.
