If this was installed to the ceiling stud directly over the drywall, would the plate be visible when fan is installed?

Asked by Buddy879263 January 22, 2019
3
Answers

Maybe or maybe not. Depends on the way the ceiling fan junction box cap & size attaches to the bracket. If your going to attach to the underside of the ceiling stud I would cut out the 4" diameter needed for the fan mounting box so it sits flush to the ceiling. (Hence the reason the fan support box is 1/2" deep) Good luck with your project.

How deep is the box? I need to come down 5/8ths to 7/8ths.

Answer

The box depth for item 0103600 is 1/2". We also have a item 0103000 which box depth is 5/8".

Can this box be used for a fan installed on a screened porch (outdoor)?

Asked by Peter August 19, 2017
3
Answers

Yes. Providing there is a substantial support member to screw it to. Many screened porches the roofing area is just a thin sheet of metal with only a Styrofoam backing. This is not adequate. Make sure to secure it to a good support. Good luck.

Can be used in wall?

Asked by Dhk July 23, 2016

Answers

I don't see any reason why not - but be aware that as a shallow box there's little room for the wires coming in. Fortunately, for me, there was room withing the fan housing but even then it was very tight.

Drill Bit Size

Asked by MrEd July 15, 2015

Answers

I would start with the 1/8" size. You want it to be a guide to help the screw into the wood. If it's tight, try soaping the threads first.

Replaced ordinary non-conforming item installed by a previous homeowner with this unit. Needed shallow unit approved for fan. This met requirements. I like the included cover - made patching, painting easier by protecting the wires from material and paint before hanging fan. Screws and wire clamp were included as well.
