WG4 notification appliances are rated for outdoor use and are suitable for indoor or outdoor applications on walls or ceilings. For surface-mounting in outdoor or wet applications, appliances must be mounted to a 449 electrical box. In dry conditions, they are compatible with standard 4-inch square by 1 1/2-inch deep electrical boxes. When using the optional WG4WTS or WG4RTS trim skirt, a 449 or 4-inch square by 2-1/8" deep box must be used.
The Genesis WG4 horn and horn-strobe may be wall- or ceiling- mounted, and may be placed in one of four positions: strobe above, strobe below, and strobe to either side. The shallow depth of Genesis devices leaves room behind the appliance for extra wiring.
