I am having the hardest time finding a 3 gand weatherproof decora cover. (For switches) I found 3 gand weatherproof boxes and 3 gand blanks but not switch covers.. Anyone know where I can find these?

Thanks....

This is for 3-gang toggle switch. You might try searching the site a little more than I did - I just did a quick scan.

Indcom has the correct pert. The use of Decora switches isn't a weatherproof installation.

You're looking for a 3-gang GFCI cover (essentially designed for short-term use of portable power tools in good weather), which is why you're having trouble finding it.

Yep, JMichael, it is for a 3-gang toggle switch...just like I said in the very first sentence of my replay.

Did a little more research today with fellow co-workers and a handful of suppliers and as far as anyone knows...they do not make a 3-gang GFIC device Raco/Bell WP cover (or your so named 3-gang Decora Switch cover).

Sorry I came up short for an answer. Maybe somebody else here on the forum can help you.

I found a manafacture in California. Orbit Industries. http://www.orbitelectric.com They make what I need. Now unfortunatly I have to find one of there distributors who will ship it to me. I just find it bizzare a 3 gang w/p cover is not more readily available. I mean I can find 3 gang weather proof boxes everywhere. Why not 3 gang covers????

Congradulations! Looks like we all learned something new today. I haven't been able to open the website yet due to Adobe issues, but, I'll sure look at it when I can.

As far as availability of covers and boxes to match equally, this may be an issue of what's more commonly used in the Suppliers areas and what they keep readily in stock. something like this is not a common item around here which is why none of my suppliers knew it even existed. Guess what I'm going to do Monday.

Thanks for the feedback and info and the website. I've bookmarked it onto my files.

By the way, can you give the catalog # and info to your supplier and they order it for you? I'd imagine it will cost a chunk of change.
