Interesting question. I think the AHJ has some wiggle room for an interpretation there. 210.52(G) does require the receptacle in the garage but 406.12 says "In dwelling units" not a building associated with a dwelling. I still think most would say everything needs to be TR if you don't fit an exception. If NFPA stays true to form all of the exceptions will go away soon.
John brings up a good point. I did a hospital a while back and the only receptacles that they stocked were the hospital grade even though they did a lot of work in the offices. They told me that this actually reduced their costs because none of their electricians even had to make a return trip to the stockroom after realizing that they had picked up the wrong device. Of course they were also concerned that a commercial grade receptacle might otherwise find its way into a patient room...but that's a whole different concern.
Well whether they require it to have them or not, I think I got around it with the exception. It says if they are over 5ft. 6", they don't have to be. The owner wanted them high so he can plug in a shop light, so I put them 66 1/4"
Absolutely ok to use hospital grade receptacles wherever TR are not required. They are the highest grade of non explosion proof devices and I'd guess even explosion proof are about the enclosure. The redundant insulated ground is about verification of voltage rise and bonding testing without adding in all the other parallel paths. It is also about reducing voltage rise between any 2 conductive points in cases of faults to ensure no current is using the patient as a parallel path. Hospital grade receptacles don't isolate the mounting strap like Isolated ground outlets do.
I can't say I have seen a WR outlet? Does it mean Weather Resistant? Not a Canadian Requirement. I would guess that Hospital grade may be more corrosion resistant but are not subjected to the same test procedure as WR in the product standard so maybe the HG are in fact better made but no one has paid to test them to prove it? The testing system is about proving your product meets the standard and not just promising it will like they do in Europe. Maybe the guts of WR and HG are the same and only missing the green dot?
