Flush Mount Deck Floor Receptacle: The Must-Have Deck Outlet

KB Electric LLC installed a flush mount deck floor receptacle yesterday, and we loved every second of the install and concept, so we decided to blog about it! This isn’t our first rodeo with installing flush mount floor receptacles. We’ve done a lot of residential and commercial indoor installs before, like at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. But a flush mount floor deck outlet? Now that was something new that one of our customers had supplied, and a fun project for the team!



What is a flush mount deck floor receptacle? 

In conjunction with a raised deck, a flush mount deck floor outlet is an ideal solution for bringing power to anything and everything. Literally as it sounds, a flush mount deck floor receptacle is an outlet mounted flush to your deck floor. It is made up of a deck floor box, weatherproof outlet box and cover, and a weather/tamper resistant GFCI. 


How is a flush mount deck floor receptacle installed?

Deck floor outlets of this type should be installed by a professional. But to answer this question simply, a flush mount deck floor receptacle is hardwired into your main electrical panel on its own dedicated line. A licensed electrician knows how to do this correctly and safely.
