Nonmetallic boxes

The Carlon Draft-Tight nonmetallic box features a flanged gasket and cable entry seals that prevent the free flow of air through the box and eliminate the need for caulking and sealants, according to the company. Designed to meet the 2012 International Energy Compliance Code (IECC), the boxes are constructed of high-strength polycarbonate that will not shatter in cold temperatures or warp in hot temperatures.
