• Airports and Transportation Hubs: In places with high public traffic, such as airports and train stations, these receptacles help to minimize the risk of electrical accidents.
• National Electrical Code (NEC):The NEC, specifically Article 406.12, mandates the use of tamper-resistant receptacles in all new and renovated dwellings. This includes residential homes, apartments, and certain childcare facilities.
• International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC):While IEC standards are more prevalent in Europe and other parts of the world, they also influence the design and safety features of electrical devices, including tamper-resistant outlets.
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI): ANSI may also have relevant standards or guidelines that pertain to the manufacturing and testing of electrical receptacles, including those that are tamper-resistant.
Product Type:Tamper Resistant.
These components work together to provide a safe, durable, and reliable electrical outlet that protects against the risks associated with electrical outlets, especially in environments where children are present.
