Q. "Are these gas line boxes suitable for outdoor use?"
A. No. Per the manufacturer, these are designed for indoor applications only.
Q. "What is CSST?"
A. CSST is an abbreviation for Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing, which is available under a number of brand names and used as an alternative to black iron for gas piping in some municipalities. As always, check with your municipality to confirm the applicable what codes for your job site. We do not carry CSST pipe at this time.
Q. "What's the difference between standard and fire rated outlet boxes?"
A. Standard outlet boxes are simply a box installed between the wall studs to keep valves out of the way yet accessible. These are not rated for use in areas that require fire retardant materials. Fire retardant gas outlet boxes are designed to be used in conjunction with fire retardant building materials to maintain the performance of the fire retardant construction. The outlet boxes on this page are not only constructed of a fire-retardant resin, but they also feature intumescent pads, which is a kind of fire stop putty designed to retard heat transfer in the event a fire reaches the pad, which can help keep a fire from spreading further.
