Intermatic Inc.: Weatherproof Cover
The WP5000 is a new seven-product series of 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant, in-use plastic weatherproof cover. It is available in 10 assorted colors and features improved durability and sizes, stated the manufacturer. Made of heavy-duty polycarbonate plastic for greater durability, the WP5000 Series meets 2014 NEC requirements for covers at 15- and 20-A, 125- and 250-V receptacles installed at wet locations and extra-duty applications. The color palette has been expanded to include eight different colors for both residential and commercial applications. This gives contractors and customers a variety of options for distinctive, decorative touches or allows them to blend the weatherproof cover into building’s exterior. Additionally, Intermatic created two yellow and orange SKUs to take advantage of the greater safety awareness that bright colors can provide in many settings, such as playgrounds, schools, municipal settings, and outdoor venues.
