Engineered Products Company’s (EPCO) Landscape SplicePost for outdoor luminaires is different from any other "hollow pipe" style landscape lightpost on the market. It features an internal wiring compartment/junction box, rated for 19 cubic inches that easily accommodates two (2) 20 AMP circuits. The Landscape SplicePost allows the installer to make a proper ground connection to safeguard people and property from electric shock hazards.
- The Landscape SplicePost is UL Listed as a "Luminaire Fixture Fitting," suitable for use in wet locations.
- Meets the requirements of the 2023 National Electrical Code: Articles 314.15, 314.16(A)(2) and 314.17(B).
- The Landscape SplicePost features a Separator Disk™ and SpliceCap™ that creates an integral "junction box" suitable for splicing.
- The PVC SpliceCap is non-metallic and suitable for the majority of outdoor luminaires on the market.
- Replaces EMT, conduit connectors and weatherproof boxes.
- Ready to install. No assembly required.
- Corrosion and UV resistant.
- 100% shatter resistant.
Our Landscape SplicePost luminaire fitting’s cap is designed and engineered to attach a relatively short statured luminaire (12-inches or less height).
Example: A 6-pound luminaire mounted 4-feet high (when measured from the ground to the height of the luminaire) may be too much “torquing” force and may cause the SplicePost fitting’s cap to deform – especially when used in environments with high ambient temperatures and direct sunshine.
Installation Tip: The SplicePost is capable of installing “up to” a 12-pound luminaire.
||A. SpliceCap accommodates a 1/2" trade size conduit nipple.|
|B. NEC Article 314.17 – Conductors entering boxes, conduit bodies or fittings shall be protected from abrasion and shall comply with 314.17(B).|
|C. …Where raceway or cable is installed with metal boxes or conduit bodies, the raceway or cable shall be secured to such boxes and conduit bodies.|
|D. NEC Article 314.4 – All metal boxes shall be grounded and bonded in accordance with Parts I, IV, V, VI, VII, and X of Article 250 as applicable, except as permitted in 250.112(I).|

|B. The SpliceCap's 19 cubic inch box volume can house two 20 AMP circuit conductors.|
|C. Raised "Grips" simplify installation and removal of the SpliceCap.|
|D. Eight (8) internal "Stops" seat and firmly hold the Separator Disk™ in place when the SpliceCap is positioned on the PVC Pipe.|
|E. UF Connector secures the incoming supply line cable to the Separator Disk.|
|F. Separator Disk with attached Ground Wire. Use with non-grounded metallic luminaires to make a safe ground connection.|
