Can this product be ganged and partitioned for low voltage per NEC 800-52(a)(3)? If so what product does it need?
Asked by: Donerite
This box cannot be further partitioned however it can be ganged to one of the same to make a multi-gang box. In order to do so, simply remove the set screw on the side walls you wish to remove and use that same screw to connect the two boxes together. If a partition is required, RACO model #599 is then required. This partition is designed to work with all 2-1/2 deep gangable switch boxes. We do not offer a partition to work with our 3-1/2 in. deep boxes at this time.
