The Sidemount Plus Fan Box allows you to safely install a ceiling fan or light fixture without access to attic space. The box's design provides secure attachment to an existing ceiling joist. It is ideal for installation during new construction or remodeling, and can be installed in finished ceilings through a hole large enough to fit the box. The Sidemount Plus features a dual-mount, heavy-duty, all-metal electrical box. To install it in a finished ceiling, simply mount the bracket to a joist through a 4-inch hole in the drywall, pull the wire into the box, and remount the box to the bracket. The box is UL listed to support fans and light fixtures up to 70 pounds. It includes 10-24 threads for heavier fans and fixtures and 8-32 threads for cover plates and lightweight lighting fixtures.
