Electrical boxes are a vital component of any wiring system, providing a secure and safe junction point for wires to connect. They come in many different shapes and sizes, depending on the purpose they need to serve.
Types of Electrical Boxes
Common types of electrical boxes include 1 1/4 junction boxes, 1 inch deep electrical boxes, 2 gang electrical boxes, cable conduit boxes, ceiling electrical boxes, ceiling outlet boxes, conduit junction boxes, cut in box electricals and decorative electrical junction boxes.

Most commonly made out of metal or plastic compounds such as PVC or ABS plastic material. Depending on the application there may be additional materials used such as steel or aluminum alloy plates for added durability and strength. Some types of electric box enclosures may also contain knockouts that allow cables to be easily inserted into the device.
