Leviton has debuted its new weather-resistant outlet receptacle, Decora. This is the latest addition to the company’s signature line of weather-resistant products.

Available in a 15A-125V model, the receptacle also features a tamper-resistant design to prevent children from inserting objects into the outlets. A built-in shutter mechanism delivers this additional safeguard, by blocking access to the contacts unless a two-prong plug is inserted.

The Decora receptacle is constructed with UV-stabilized thermoplastic that can endure the outdoor environment. The unit can handle rain, cold temperatures, snow, ice and other outdoor elements. It also complies with the NEC Section 406.8 code and UL standards to help ensure safety and protection outdoors.

Receptacles can be installed in several outdoor spaces, including rooftops, outdoor patios and pool areas. The new receptacle is available in white and is protected by a two-year limited warranty.
