Surface Mount Box 1-Gang
DataPro's surface-mount boxes allow the installation of single gang wallplates and panel-mount cables on impenetrable surfaces, and provide additional clearance for mounting your connectors.

These standard-sized US single gang surface-mount boxes are ideal for situations where you cannot penetrate a mounting surface directly. Our surface mount boxes are constructed of sturdy industrial-grade plastic and feature self-adhesive backing to secure them where a plate or caddy fasteners can't be attached.

They accommodate any standard single-gang electrical wallplates and hold them securely via two standard mounting screws. The threading on the mounting holes in our 80-6501 boxes matches the thread of the screws that we provide with all of our stock and custom plates, as well as most common plates from other manufacturers.

You can also use these boxes to allow for more clearance when running panel-mount cables and couplers. When a flush mount proves difficult or impossible, these surface mount boxes allow an additional 1.77 inches (45mm) of clearance, so you can fit larger connectors behind your plates.

These boxes are also ideal for use with adhesive-mount surface raceways. When used together, these products allow you to have your entire cable run mounted on the outside of a wall while maintaining an unobtrusive look. No drilling or mounting hardware required! The raceway serves as an effective way to protect your cables and hide them from view. Our boxes come with pre-measured 'knock-outs' on the top, bottom, and sides to accommodate many standard sizes of raceway. Simply choose the correct pre-measured size for your raceway, remove the material with pliers, and attach the raceway. This setup is useful when the wall you are mounting your run to is impenetrable and the use of adhesive mounting is the only option. Surface raceways are readily available from your local hardware, electrical, or home-improvement store.

The included knock-outs for standard raceways are :

-0.75" (19mm) width x 0.44" (11.1mm) height
-1.00" (25.4mm) width x 0.56" (14.3mm) height
-1.50" (38.1mm) width x 0.75" (19mm) height
-1.81" (46mm) width x 1.00" (25.4mm) height

If you don't want to use the supplied adhesive backing or screw them to existing mounting holes, these surface-mount boxes will also mount securely to any surface with appropriate wood, plastic or metal mounting screws (not included). They provide a solid foundation to mount a plate, and look great in any home or business application!

DataPro is pleased to offer the widest selection available of stock and custom-built wall plates for use with our 80-6501 Surface-Mount Boxes. Please note that these boxes are built to accommodate standard US single gang plates only.
