J-Box Enhancements

We are pleased to introduce two product enhancements related to some of our junction boxes.

AT Extender Box – Junction Box Extender for Airtight I.C. Boxes

Since 2007, we offer our Extender box (1232E) to double the internal volume of our 1232 series non-airtight junction boxes. We have recently modified the junction box used on our Airtight I.C. Boxes, to similarly allow multiples to be secured together, offering the same volume increase feature.

To use these Extenders, like always, two #8-32 self-tapping screws are installed into the cover mounting holes (but only partially and without any cover in place).

A second identical J-Box = our AT Extender Box, item # 1281-92-1 (or 1481-92-1 for our new line of Airtight IC Boxes with Junction Box 70), is then joined by rotating it so the (new) angled slots on the rear face engage under the heads of the partially installed screws. These screws may then be fully tightened, securing the AT Extender Box to the base J-Box.

Please click here for our regular size AT Extender Box 1281-92-1.

Please click here for our large AT Extender Box 1481-92-1.

Triparloc™ – Junction Box Locking feature

All of our junctions boxes that contain our snap-on cover retaining spring* will have the new Triparloc™. This is the addition of a small hole adjacent to free end(s) of the spring, into which a #8-32 self-tapping screw may be installed, providing for permanent or tamper proof assembly.

The head of the screw prevents the spring- release, locking any of our covers; flat, 3D & Extender Box. This can be also be useful when mounting a heavy driver to the cover to prevent accidental separation.

*Includes our #1062, 1232 & 1247 series junction boxes, 1232E Extender Box, 1410 & 1420 series Universal Driver/Junction Boxes, and any junction box that comes mounted to our 1241 series plaster frames.

To obtain more information please contact our Sales Team at Sales@TriparInc.com.

Plaster Ring Assembly

Plaster Rings & Assemblies

Tripar is pleased to offer 6” & 8” Plaster Rings and Assemblies for OEMs to design and incorporate aluminum reflectors and LED downlight modules, suitable for new construction or remodel, non-IC accessible or suspended ceilings.

The plaster rings contain a 1-3/8” tall flange and three dual contact retaining springs to hold the Trim/Reflector securely to the finished ceiling, easily withdrawn for LED module replacement or painting. Compatible with ceiling thicknesses from ½” to 1-1/8”.

The plaster rings also accept riveting of our;

  • 1253-1 Sliding Brackets, offering 3” of vertical adjustment when coupled with our 1254 Butterfly Brackets1, or our 1054 Caterpillar Brackets2.
  • 1232 series Junction Boxes, which include a variety of knockout holes (9/16”, 7/8” and 1-1/8”, all containing screwdriver slots), ground wire, and a snap-on cover retention spring. Measuring 4-3/4” wide x 3” high x 1- 3/4” deep, the internal volume is 25 in³, which may be increased approx. 50% by snapping on one of our 3D covers (1242-XXB), or doubled using our Extender Box 1232E; see http://www.triparinc.com/wp- content/uploads/2012/05/New-Product-Bulletin-Ext-Box-3-D-Cover.pdf .

1 – Butterfly Brackets 1254 permit multiple suspension means using our 1287 Bar Hangers, our 1487™ Commercial L- Bars, or alternate means of suspension (conduit, furring strip, C-channel, etc.).

2 – Caterpillar Brackets 1054 permit suspension via only our 1287 Bar Hangers.

Newsletter January 2017 Safety Award

New Capability

Tripar has just purchased a new 4-axis CNC Milling machine. As we bring this on-line, it will add to Tripar’s capabilities by allowing us to:

  • Reduce die manufacture time, allowing for parts to get into production sooner.
  • Advancing our ability to make more complex dies, allowing the parts to be made in one die, instead of multiple operations, potentially lowering the unit price.
  • Offer value added production machining of our metal stampings if/where required, allowing the customer to get parts fully manufactured at Tripar, shortening lead time.

Safety Award

In December 2016 Tripar were finalists in a Quebec ‘CNESST’ (the Quebec equivalent of OHSHA) safety award. Tripar developed a concept whereby a factory worker can hitch a heavy metal components storage container to one of our electric pallet trucks to safely relocate it to our required manufacturing cell.

It was proposed by an factory worker through ‘Tripar’s Suggestion Program’. Its success has greatly reduced the chance of injury and sped up the task for the worker.

L-Bar™ Success

Tripar’s #1487 L-Bars (Patents pending) were launched in September 2016 and have been a real success. With multiple customers adding them to their product line and over 500,000 ordered in four months, this product has the potential to become the ‘Standard’ in the commercial bar market.

Customer testimonials include:

  • Congratulations. The bar hangers are real winners!!!
  • We like the universal aspect of both sides of the hanger bar being the same unit
  • Awesome, these are strong and indeed feature packed
  • What a great idea, these will become standard on all our fixtures
