Over Air Barrier Electrical Light Mounting Block – solves moisture issues
To begin with, the best way to completely eliminate the possibility of moisture intrusion is to eliminate the hole! For this purpose we introduce to you the Over Air Barrier Electrical Light Mounting Block. Exterior electrical boxes are traditionally fastened to a stud in an opening through the sheathing, thus the electrical box itself is a large opening in the air/moisture barrier. Generally, professionals have used costly spray foam, flashing tape, and other products in an effort to eliminate the hole. Nonetheless, those solutions are labor-intensive and prone to improper installation.
Eliminate the potential for future problems
On the contrary, this Over Air Barrier Electrical Light Mounting Block puts the electrical box on the outside of the air/moisture barrier. Meanwhile, the only penetration through the sheathing and air/moisture barrier is a 3/4” hole for the wire to pass through. The hole can be easily and completely sealed with caulking. Save time, money and eliminate the potential for future problems. You can mount the Over Air Barrier anywhere! This product mounts onto the sheathing and not to a stud. In addition, you will have more options in the placement of the OAB Electrical Light Mounting Block compared to an in-the-wall box. Finally, this product is made from high-quality materials.
