Hi George!


This is an application-specific question and would depend on which generic UL, X-proof or lesser class would apply.  There is no UL–Fume Hood outlet Class for all fume hood interiors since such a wide variety of internal conditions exist inside hoods.  It is far easier to use standard outlets OUTSIDE the hood environment, since these are typically Class I Div. 1 (Expensive) or GFI type and operate in the room rather than the fume hood environment. Most modern hoods have standard plug wire routing paths out of the containment area to such exterior outlets.


I hope this helps,

DCHAS group members,

Does anyone know of any power strips that are rated for use within chemical fume hoods? Typically the "standard" power strips are not recommended for such use.

Thank you in advance for any feedback you can provide.
