Leading Australian electrical safety and energy solutions innovator, Clipsal by Schneider Electric (Clipsal), has launched a new wall box to meet the growing needs of today’s electricians.
The 157MDF Deep Fire-Rated Wall Box has been designed to provide optimal protection and support for new emerging technology that has outgrown traditional models. Now, with a depth of 70mm, the wall box can safely house these modular devices such as Iconic and Clipsal WiserTM Smart Home.
“At Clipsal, we are actively committed to making the lives of electricians easier and safer, which is why we are continuously innovating our products,” said Chris Kerr, Vice President Home & Distribution at Clipsal by Schneider Electric. “We innovate across the spectrum of our product range and our new wall box is our latest development.”
For faster and more efficient installation, the wall box features a new earthing terminal that is compliant to AS/NZS 3.7.11. It also offers 120-minute integrity and 90-minute insulation fire ratings, providing Australian electricians with peace of mind at install.
The product also boasts acoustic rated up to STC50, 11mm intumescent material, and a solid surround for easy application of mastic.
The tabs on the 157MDF Deep Fire-Rated Wall Box have also been repositioned, ensuring a better fit and smoother installation for the electrician, while its recessed mounts make it possible to support a large variety of plate ranges.
“The launch of this latest Wall Box to Clipsal’s portfolio is another example of how Schneider is supporting electricians to prepare for an industry of the future,” said Chris.
The product is now available to electricians Australia-wide and can be purchased from your nearest electrical wholesaler.
