Hit a Home Run with Faster Installs!

In electrical construction, a “homerun” is defined as a run of raceway between the panelboard and the first distribution point. 

In the past, installers would cobble together NEMA Type 1 boxes and assorted fittings to accommodate wiring requirements. 

The Crouse-Hinds series HomeRunner is designed as an off-the-shelf solution to provide a spacious, flexible and time-savings solution for terminating home runs and other electrical wiring. 

Its large cubic capacity, 8” x 8” and 12” x 12” size options, provides plenty of room to run multiple circuits of a single home-run cable. And it allows for multiple mounting options and accepts numerous cable sizes and configurations. 

Its patented external clamping system eliminates the need for contractors to punch holes in the enclosure and install fittings. 

Designed for metal or wood stud commercial home-run applications, the HomeRunner is suitable for use in high-rise hotels and in condominiums, where two large suites or condos can be fed from one HomeRunner box using a single large MC, MCI-A, or conduit home run. 

For example, a typical hotel application can use one HomeRunner 8” x 8” x 3” junction/pull box to feed all the circuits in each guest room.    

Then, each HomeRunner box can be linked to the service panel by a multi-wire run of EMT, or up to 10AWG/12 conductor MC or MC-I cable. 

Next, the individual MC cables feed all the in-room circuits for lights, receptacles, HVAC unit, GFCIs, etc., instead of running each back to home. 

Oversize 9.38” x9.38” cover plates can be used to hide any imperfections in the drywall hole and plaster around the box. 

Plus, the HomeRunner box can be installed in a finished wall or ceiling and come flush with the drywall surface.  

Certified to UL50 and UL514B, and CSA C22.2 No. 18.3-04 & No. 40-M1989, the HomeRunner box is an ideal solution for new or retrofit commercial applications.
