Industry proven that are built to last.

Based upon two frame sizes, the Weather Protected Series (WPS) has been designed as a suite of products, allowing interchangeability. This means the junction/utility boxes can be mounted and, with only a cover change, can be turned into a switch or socket outlet, or a combination of both. WPS offers the ultimate protection against water and dust ingress in harsh environments. WPS is an ideal option for switches and power outlets in outdoor applications.
