Re-Engineered BB8-16 Offers Enhanced Design and Reduced Labor Costs

HIGHLAND, Ill. Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today announced that its B-Line division has re-engineered its BB8-16 box mounting bracket to further improve speed of installation based on feedback from end users. Ideal for pre-fab applications, the BB8-16 offers increased rigidity, compatibility with B-Line Division’s Rapid RingTM Self-Adjusting Pre- Fab Ring and a variety of features to help ensure consistent installation.

“Our newest product is designed to support the needs of contractors looking for a bracket with the versatility to handle a wide range of installation requirements,” said James Anderson, product line manager, Eaton’s BLine division. “By designing a product with increased rigidity that is also compatible with our revolutionary Rapid Ring system, contractors can reduce installation time and help improve their bottom line.”

Suited for conventional new construction, the new BB8-16 bracket is designed to take the guesswork out of installation by utilizing a pre-measured floor stand to ensure products are consistently mounted at a height of 18 inches. This unique feature allows for a reduction in installation time and added jobsite cost savings.

New BB8-16 box mounting brackets are compatible with 4 inch and 4 11/16 inch boxes, as well as one- and two-gang standard adjustable mudrings. Products can be assembled with an integral cable containment component to meet National Electric Code (NEC) 300.4D requirements and are Underwriter Laboratory (UL) listed in both the U.S. and Canada.
