Electrical Wall Plates
Light switch covers, outlet covers and wall plates are all used to cover the portion of a wall where there is an opening for electric or networking outlets. Plates are sized based on gang, which refers to the width of a plate, rather than the number of devices or type of openings on a plate. Standard single gang plate is 2-3/4" wide, double gang is 4-1/2" wide and triple gang is 6-3/8" wide. Choose from a large assortment of gangs, materials and colors and other receptacles and light switches such as straight blade receptacles, wall switches and lighting dimmers.
