15 amp Tamper Proof  GFCI 

The Class A Rated Ivory 15-Amp tamper resistant GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) duplex outlet provides electrical shock protection and prevents the risk of electrical fire caused by ground fault current. This GFCI has a built in end-of-life feature which automatically alerts the user that the receptacle is no longer effective and needs to be replaced. The tamper resistant receptacle has a spring loaded shutter that will close off the opening to prevent insertion of small foreign objects which helps improve child safety. This 15-Amp tamper resistant GFCI can be easily installed in a typical wall switch box for both residential and commercial applications. As of 2008, National Electrical Code (NEC) requires that GFCI receptacles must be installed in all wet & damp environments such as a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, basement & break room. NEC also requires that all new and renovated facilities must use tamper resistant receptacles in all construction projects.Wall Plate is Included. .
