Orbit Industries’ new Extra Duty While-In-Use (WIU) Weatherproof Covers are among the most advanced in the industry. The WIU Covers are available in 1-Gang and 2-Gang models, with a variety of different device configurations. The construction and design of the WIU Covers make it one of the most protective covers Orbit has produced to-date. This makes the WIU Covers suitable for use in wet locations. The advanced design of the WIU Covers meets new NEC requirements for While-In-Use Covers as well. Orbit’s new Extra Duty While-In-Use Weatherproof Covers are easy to install and versatile.

          The Extra Duty Covers are available in several models, each with a number of device configurations and expandable covers. The 1-Gang Covers are available in either horizontal     (WIUM-1DH) or vertical (WIUM-1DV) models. The horizontal model is expandable to 2-3/4” and 3-1/2” and the vertical model is expandable to 2-3/4” and 4”.  Each model also offers 7 different device configurations. The 2-Gang Covers (WIUM-2U) are universal and are compatible with either horizontal or vertical devices. The 2-Gang Covers are expandable to 3-1/4” and 4-1/2” and have up to 32 different device configurations. The Extra Duty WIU Covers are remarkably adaptable due to this expandability and number of configurations.
