The XR Series Outlet Box, a wall-box kit, combines all the components an installer needs to build a safe, secure termination point for gas appliance connections, the company says. Designed for use with 1/2-in. flexible gas piping, the box can be recessed into the mounting surface 2-1/2 in., which permits an appliance to be placed closer to the wall. The kit contains a steel mounting bracket, for securing the box to a behind-the-wall stud or other mounting surface; a 90-degree ball valve that is CSA-approved for operating pressures up to 5 lb/sq in.; patented, 1/2-in. XR Series Straight Fitting for connecting the tube to the ball valve; a jam nut for fastening the tube to the box; a pressure test plug for testing the line after installation and for keeping the valve free of debris during construction; a trim plate that is set flush against the wall and over the box; and the 5-3/16- by 5-3/16- by 2-1/2-in. white, plastic box.
