Leviton Expands Outdoor Offerings with Decora® Weather-Resistant Switch
The new switch provides a stylish and convenient way to directly control outdoor lighting and motor loads from the exterior of a home
MELVILLE, N.Y., March 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today announced the introduction of its new Decora Weather-Resistant Switch, the latest addition to the company's portfolio of outdoor solutions and signature line of Decora devices. This innovative device is designed as an all-in-one light switch option for outdoor applications that is aesthetically pleasing and eliminates the need of a protective cover.
"Our Decora Weather-Resistant Switch adds convenience to outdoor living by providing a safe and easily accessible way to switch lights and motor loads on and off from the exterior of a home," said William Randall, director of product management at Leviton. "It is an important expansion to the existing line of Leviton outdoor solutions, which includes weather-resistant receptacles, GFCIs and USB Charger Devices."
The new weather-resistant switch features UV stabilized thermoplastic construction and extra corrosion protection to withstand the rigors of exposure to the elements. In a patent
pending design element, actuation is achieved with magnets to allow the subplate/switch to be impervious to water intrusion.
The device reflects the look of indoor Decora devices and features a rocker switch for smooth operation. Side and back wire options make installation of the device easy. The Decora Weather-Resistant Switch is NEMA 3R rated to meet exterior electrical code requirements.
Designed for use in wet or damp locations, the Decora Weather-Resistant Switch is ideal for residential and commercial outdoor kitchens and bars, lighting, patios, pool and spa areas, sheds, gazebos, cabanas, ceiling fans and fountains.
The Leviton Decora Weather-Resistant Switch is available in 15A Single Pole and 3-Way models with white and gray color options. It is backed by a limited 2-year warranty.
