Bell introduces a new weatherproof round electrical box. The unique new box is specifically designed to safely support ceiling fans and light fixtures for outdoor lifestyles. Bell, part of Hubbell Commercial Construction, provides innovative electrical products to industrial, commercial and residential markets.
The Bell PRCF57550 Outdoor Ceiling Fan Box provides a safe and secure mounting and weatherproof wiring junction for outdoor fans, chandeliers or pendant lights. Part of Bell's Outdoor Comforts™ line, this electrical box is designed to enhance outdoor living spaces with the same convenience and comfort as indoors.
The PRCF57550 is constructed of heavy duty PVC with an integrated galvanized steel support bracket. The 4in round box mounts parallel, perpendicular or 45° from a joist. The optional rain collar provides a weatherproof seal for fan canopies. It is UL, NEC and NEMA 3R compliant. Fans or luminaires must also be outdoor rated.
The integrated bracket allows the outdoor ceiling box to support fans up to 70lbs or heavy luminaires up to 150lbs. Five ¾" threaded entries provide convenient access for conduit or fittings. Three ½" reducer bushings and four closure plugs are included, along with mounting lag bolts and fan/fixture screws.
Bell's new ceiling fan and light fixture box provide homeowners a cost-effective solution to upgrade any outdoor area with weatherproof fans or luminaires for today's outdoor living. Applications include pergolas, patio covers, gazebos, arbors, verandas or entryways.
Availability of the Bell PRCF57550 Outdoor Ceiling Fan Box begins late September 2019. Available colors include Gray, White or Bronze. Find more information at www.hubbell.com.
