Reasons For Covers
Receptacle covers are important for a few reasons. Without covers, power outlets and other wiring projects are exposed. Not only do exposed wires look messy, but they also create potential hazards.
1. Code. Did you know many cities require switchplate covers? Apartment buildings, condos, restaurants, schools, churches, office buildings, and other public buildings must have their light switches and wire connections properly covered. Proper receptacle covers must be fitted to every wiring outlet or the building's owner could be fined.
2. Safety. Building codes are in place to make sure building occupants are kept safe. Light switches and power outlets require many electrical wires to signal that the electricity is sent to the light or appliance plugged into the power receptacle. There must be a barrier present between the wiring and the outside to prevent electric shock. Receptacle covers protect you from electrical shock. They also house the wiring and protect it from damage. Spliced and damaged wires can spark and cause an electrical fire. We manufacture our products with materials that do not carry an electric current for added safety.
3. Design. Although the main reason for covering your light switches and power outlets is to protect yourself and the wiring from harm, having receptacle covers that feature a design element also can amplify the aesthetics of a room.
