Anyone know of a single outlet GFI device, Doing a resteraunt kitchen (2002 code) with a bunch of dedicated appliances, and being forced to utilize twin breakers.... Otherwise they'll all be duplex devices....

I have never seen such an animal. Can you switch around some circuits in the panel? Take some non gfci circuits and put them on the twin breakers leaving you full spaces for gfci breakers.

I remember one time we had the same type of problem. We installed the combo GFI switch. Then just hooked the switch side to the GFI side. Then you have a GFI protected outlet with a disconect switch.

You could use a dead front GFCI device and a single receptacle in a 1900 box.

Yall kno, SOS... Rich enough to open new resturaunt, poor enough to not want new panel.... Trying to mash the joint on to a 20/40 100A sub fed-thru 100A Main with dist. Haven't done total circuit count yet, and doubting boss's quick calc ability, but darn sure I will be twinning most...

Anyway...
Single recepts will only be required for eqipment fastened in place. But I don't want to have a duplex for the things like a 14.5A toaster, (not fastened) and accomadate people who look at outlets as unlimited power sources. "Hey, look, theres an extra outlet behind the toaster!" Or the 2 11A blenders next to eachother, "We'll just move these over here, and get 2 more..."

Tom and gfretwell, dems not a half bad ideas...

Might look into dead front and single in 2G plate.

Leviton makes a single GFI with a sp switch combo device. $20-$25 range, I think. Other than that....
Dead front, single recept as above.
