How does a MODA box make a contractor’s job easier?
MODA is designed to make life easier for plumbing contractors in every way possible.
- Versatile Installation: The MODA box features incredibly sturdy wing flanges that snap together in any configuration, providing endless installation options. The plumbing contractor can mount the boxes side-by-side, over-and-under, upright, inverted, or separately for multi-wall installations. The flexibility is unmatched.
- Easy Orientation: The MODA box allows for simple and flexible orientation. You can use a single box for a washing machine installation with an inverted valve. No matter how you turn it, the interior dimensions are spacious enough for comfortable work, and it can effortlessly accommodate components like hammer arresters. It’s all about convenience.
- Quick and Easy Installation: Installing and repositioning the MODA box takes minimum effort, thanks to the nail guides and center support that add support to metal studs in commercial applications, ensuring a secure fit. The two-piece valve replacement can be completed in under 30 seconds without cutting into drywall — efficiency at its finest.
- Saves Time and Money: The MODA box minimizes inventory management since it requires only one faceplate for all box types. Contractors don’t need to worry about stocking different faceplates for different installations.
All these benefits help contractors reduce insurance claims, minimize drywall work, and avoid unnecessary repainting. The MODA box system streamlines the contractor’s workflow, making their job more efficient and hassle-free. To see how easy it is to install the MODA box, check out this video.
