Leviton’s Wetguard products are the most versatile and well-engineered watertight wiring devices on the market. The Wetguard line consists of a comprehensive array of plugs, connectors, inlets, outlets, covers and an industry exclusive FD Box system that allows mounting of single-gang devices in multi-gang configurations.

Watch this five-minute video to learn about the advantages of Wetguard.

Watertight Electrical Connections
Wetguard devices are designed for industrial applications where electrical connections are exposed to wet locations such as outdoor weather or indoor washdown. They have IEC
and NEMA watertight and dust-tight enclosure ratings and offer many significant advantages over competitive brands. A patented multi-point sealing system forms an impenetrable barrier against dirt and moisture providing the ultimate protection that you should expect from a watertight device.

Wetguard devices feature corrosion-resistant electroless nickel-coated brass blades, contacts, terminal screws and wiring clamps, and stainless steel assembly screws, making them ideal for use in wet and corrosive environments.

Withstands Abuse in Harsh Environments
Wetguard devices are resistant to water, acids, alkalies, and many automotive and industrial lubricants and solvents. The plug and connector husk is molded to a bondable nylon body, providing a device that withstands physical abuse as well. In addition, the patented compression nut strain relief system ensures the integrity of the electrical connection and watertight seal.
