Electrical Planning Guide for Docking Drawer and Style Drawer Series Installations

Docking Drawer Charging Outlets have been listed by ETL and they comply with UL 962a when installed in accordance to outlet installation instructions. Additionally, our Style Drawer Powering Outlets have been listed by ETL and comply with UL 962a when installed in accordance to the outlets installation instructions. The following is a guide designed to provide steps for roughing-in an electrical supply for your Docking Drawer or Style Drawer Series outlet installation. Please review the specific installation instructions for each outlet.

A licensed electrician needs to supply all electrical rough-ins to local building codes for your Docking Drawer installation. Docking Drawer outlets cannot be plugged into dishwasher, disposal, instant hot water, or trash compactor outlets. Remember that all powering outlets require a 20 amp circuit. All wiring inside of a cabinet must be MC Cable.

All Powering Outlets come with a 20A, tamper proof, GFCI protected outlet.

In-Cabinet Electrical Supply Location

Locating an electrical supply to provide power to your Docking Drawer or Style Drawer in-drawer outlet is straightforward.


Where to Locate the In-Cabinet Electrical Supply

The in-cabinet electrical supply can be installed in a variety of locations to provide power to your Docking Drawer or Style Drawer in-drawer outlet.

Where Not to Locate the Power Source – One location that we caution is directly behind the drawer where the cabinet is being installed. If this location is utilized, you must ensure that the in-cabinet outlet and wiring do not interfere with the Docking Drawer cable management arms or drawer slides.

Charging Outlets

A standard 15amp in-cabinet outlet is needed and can be located at the bottom of the cabinet or just under the drawer that the Docking Drawer is installed into, etc.
