What is a BackBoxx™?

When climate levels vary on opposing sides of walls and/or ceilings, moisture can permeate and compromise your electronic in-wall devices and wire junctures. BackBoxx™ surrounds provide a vapor barrier to protect your electronic devices from damages caused by moisture passing through your walls.

Why do I need a BackBoxx™?

Most state building codes require a wall or ceiling penetration to be sealed once the wall becomes exposed to an untreated climate, where an existing vapor barrier has been compromised. BackBoxx™ provides a fast, easy, and approved way to meet and exceed these building code requirements.

BackBoxx™ is designed to meet, and exceed, the 2012 IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) and upcoming adjustments in the code.

Additionally, BackBoxx™ surrounds mark your low voltage territory to notify other trade professionals that technology will be installed. BackBoxx products provide a uniformed, professional look, and will help others to notice and aid in protection of this technology.

Is the BackBoxx™ fire rated?

Although the BackBoxx™ has not been issued an official fire rating, it does exhibit some pyrophobic properties. When exposed to open flame, the BackBoxx™ self-extinguishes. Since BackBoxx™ products are designed to be installed behind the fire barrier (such as drywall) in residential applications, there is no requirement for BackBoxx™ products to carry a fire rating.

Commercial buildings do have fire rating requirements. We do not recommend BackBoxx™ products be installed in commercial building applications.

NOTE: We do not recommend BackBoxx™ products be installed in commercial building applications.
