Leviton Introduces New 2-Gang Poke-Through Floor Box System

Leviton Manufacturing Company
New expanded floor box line offers ease of installation and superior performance in commercial applications

Melville, N.Y. November 10, 2020 – Leviton today announced the launch of its new poke-through floor box, the latest addition to the company’s floor box portfolio. The new system is designed to ease installation, provide maximum compatibility and offer superior performance in any commercial application.

Featuring industry-exclusive adjustable anchoring clips, Leviton’s poke-through floor box system eliminates a common installation issue that occurs when adjustments need to be made. With Leviton’s new device, installers simply loosen the anchoring clips to remove the device, allowing for major time savings when compared to existing solutions.

“A typical poke-through install requires several modifications, whether it is for re-alignments, inspections, or other adjustments,” said Tony Pulsonetti, director of product management, Leviton Commercial & Industrial. “Existing devices have sharp and rigid spikes that permanently lock the unit inside a cored, concrete hole. Because of that, a tremendous amount of effort is required to remove and adjust the device.”

The new poke-through floor box system has several other design features that help ease installation, including a two-piece construction that allows the device to self-level up to four degrees, eliminating a potential tripping hazard and unpleasant aesthetics. Pre-wired covers are also available for an even faster installation.

Once installed, durable aluminum covers provide superior performance and are available in five different configurations in four powder-coated finishes. The covers exceed UL scrubwater testing, UL crush testing (300lb) by over 300% and are ADA-compliant. The new system also has an industry-exclusive door-in-door cover design on both the standard and pre-wired versions, which hides the flip lids and allows the cover to remain flush, even when the outlets are in use.

Leviton’s new poke-through floor box system offers maximum compatibility. The 2-gang, 5-inch poke-through accommodates any standard or Leviton Decora™ single or duplex receptacle, as well as any Lev-Lok and QuickPort® insert. Unlike competitors, this system features multiple low voltage divider slots to accommodate different device widths.

Leviton’s new poke-through floor box system is backed by an industry-leading 5-year limited warranty and features a 2-hour fire rating.
