Questions & Answers

Can this be mounted directly to a concrete ceiling?

Can this be mounted directly to a concrete ceiling?
Asked by: Dan
Yes, But I would not suggest using the included screws. GO to your local Home Depot store and pick up some Tap Con screws. They are sold in various packs sizes and lengths. I would use the screws that have a large flat washer head. Typically the hex drive Tap Cons. They are in the hardware isle under concrete screws and attachments.

Asked by: GregU
No, I don't believe so but you could check at your local Home Depot store. The dimensions for a standard or GFI plug screws holes is 3 1/4 inch.

I'm trying to install a new ceiling fan. My ceiling electric box is plastic and does not appear strong enough for a fan.

This model appears to work well for "during construction" work. Is there a model that would work well after construction so I won't have to tear up my ceiling and refinish/repaint it?
Asked by: Miguel
some plastic ceiling box's have the mounting screw go through the box to the rafter under it. Most likely it is not rated to hold a fan. If your able cut out the old box you can put a old work ceiling fan box in it's place.

Do you guys sell the metal cover by itself?

I need a lot of covers but I can't find any. Is there a way I can special order all of them.
Asked by: Jesus
Jesus Home Depot does sell numerous different 4 inch round box ceiling covers. Some have a knockout in the center of them these are called rough covers. They stock them in 3.5 and 4 inch sizes. If your local Home Depot does not carry them look at Home Depot.com Home Depot sells them in 4 inch size a blank plastic Finish covers, paintable or white finish style plastic covers four inch waterproof covers and four inch rough covers or blank covers. Please disregard the previous HD associate response or answer that they do not carry the covers.

This is a heavy-duty ceiling fan electrical box designed to be attached to a wood stud and provide the necessary weight handling capacity for mounting a ceiling fan. It is built of heavy gauge metal and provides several options for screw and electric connections placement. Box comes with cover and mounting/ground screws and a Romex wire connector. Two metal ears on the box edges provide a good mounting surface for the fan plate. An economical study box to provide a very strong mount for your fan.

Ceiling Fan Box with Metal Cover. After opening the box and inspecting the item I can tell it is very heavy duty and will be able to support a ceiling fan with no problem. It came with all the hardware to install it. The instructions are wrote very well and they're easy to follow. I already have a couple ceiling fans installed in my house but when I install another one I will definitely use this ceiling fan box.

Heads would strip like crazy. Only got 3 of the 4 wood screws in and I don't think I could ever get them out again, how striped the screw heads are now. The 4th screw became unusable. Perhaps look for higher quality wood screws when you pick this up.
