Ok heres the situation. I'm ready to finish a house in a few weeks. The bathtub they had installed is jetted with a single 240V pump. At R/I I had done some google searching on my smart phone to see if there was at 240V dead front GFI available. I'm sure that I had found one without much trouble but wasnt smart enough to write down any of the info on it. No after all my searching I cant seem to find anything available to fit this situation. Typically I just run the tub feed into a single gang box then a switch leg out to the tub. Finish it off with a dead front GFI and its a nice clean finish. Now my only options I can come up with is:
1) 2 pole GFI breaker with a 2 pole switch in the bath room
2) 240 Volt deadfront GFI

Anyone know of anything available?

BTW the 2 pole GFI is quite costly thats why I'm looking for a more affordable solution.

Thanks. That looks like it just might work. I dont know how I overlooked that one. Only downfall is that its leviton brand and therefore has the black and red buttons on it which doesnt match the Pass and Seymour all white gfi's. I might just have to install all leviton gfi's in this job. Thanks again.
