How far off the floor should outlets be in a garage?
Likewise, people ask, where should outlets be placed in a garage?
Garage outlets should be placed in convenient locations with at least one every 6′ on each wall. Take into consideration any plans for a future workbench ahead of time. It is much easier to add outlets during construction than after the walls are all closed up. It is easy to say one every 6′ on each wall in the garage.
Also Know, how close can an outlet be to a corner? The National Electrical Code specifies that you must have an electrical outlet (receptacle) within 6 feet of the corner of any wall and no more than 12 feet separating receptacles on the same wall (6/12 outlet rule). That of course is the minimum requirement for living space .
Beside above, how high should exterior outlets be?
Required Outdoor Receptacle Locations Protection may be provided by a GFCI receptacle or a GFCI breaker. One receptacle is required at the front and rear of the house and at a maximum height of 6 feet 6 inches above grade (ground level).
How many outlets can be on a 20 amp circuit in a garage?
One rule of thumb is to assign a maximum draw of 1.5 amps to each receptacle, which allows for 10 receptacles on a 20-amp circuit.
