Pass & Seymour/Legrand, a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, announces its Tamper-Resistant Receptacle/Switch Combination devices. Meeting 2008 National Electrical Code® (NEC) safety standards, the combination devices expand what is already a broad offering of Tamper-Resistant Receptacles for residential and commercial applications.

The 2008 NEC established a new standard for child electrical safety, requiring all electrical outlets, or receptacles, in newly constructed residential units to be Tamper-Resistant Receptacles.

Tamper-Resistant Receptacle works like any electrical outlet, except it has a built-in shutter system that prevents children from inserting metal objects into the slots. The shutters obstruct objects from touching electrically live components, but plugs can be inserted and removed as usual.

The Tamper-Resistant Receptacle-Switch Combination brings a single receptacle and a single-pole switch together, for safety and convenience. The devices come in 15A and 20A options.

"P&S already offers more than 100 Tamper-Resistant device, style and color combinations," said Tom Roy, residential product manager at P&S. "The addition of these receptacle and toggle switch combinations represents another significant step toward offering the broadest range of Tamper-Resistant products on the market."

Nearly 30 states and municipalities have adopted the new Tamper-Resistant Code requirements, and most can be expected to adopt them by the end of 2009.
