Leviton Grades vs Retail

Newbie

I know this has been asked but a definitive answer was not provided.

Leviton grades receptacles as:
Residential

Commercial

Industrial

Home Depot grades receptacles as:

Standard

Preferred

Professional.

 

I assume that the receptacles themselves are likely the same, but only packaged/labeled differently per the retailers request.

Since I doubt that Leviton manufactures a totally different device only for Home Depot, can I safely say that the following correlation exists?

LEVITON              Home Depot

Residential     =    Standard

Commercial    =    Preferred

Industrial         =    Professional

    Robert,

     

    Generally speaking, your chart is correct.  Not all of our equipment always falls within the same guidelines, as we often have devices that may be made for commercial/industrial applications.  Other times, we have multiple lines even within the same "grade" (Heavy Duty & Extra Heavy Duty, etc.).  We do offer some devices in retailer-specific packaging--Home Depot included. If you have any questions regarding specific products, feel free to give us a call at 800.824.3005.
