3 Unexpected Benefits of Extra-Duty Die-Cast Weatherproof Covers

Covering electrical receptacles in outdoor environments isn’t just a smart way to reduce maintenance issues and ensure performance – it’s required for code compliance. However, beyond meeting local building standards, Intermatic In-Use Extra-Duty Die-Cast Weatherproof Covers deliver a range of unexpected benefits to installers and building owners alike.

Built Intermatic Strong

Designed and tested in our UL Certified lab, Intermatic Extra-Duty Die-Cast covers are built to withstand heavy precipitation and impact forces of up to 12 lbf. The die-cast aluminum covers are certified for Type 3R applications and include UV stabilized polycarbonate inserts. This helps protect the cover from outdoor elements and safeguards outlets from accidental impacts.

Simple, Secure Installation

Moreover, a built-in lockable hasp and a hinge that’s rated for 40 lbf (stress test) defend each cover from outside tampering.

Sleek Industrial Design

Perfect for industrial, commercial, agricultural and residential applications, Intermatic Extra-Duty Die-Cast Covers offer a modern design and neutral gray color that blends into the surrounding environment. The rugged, modern look reinforces the lineup’s longevity and heavy-duty performance.
