Duplex wall plates are designed to retrofit existing standard size receptacles. Curved and smooth edges protect from foreign objects while providing a safe cover.
Duplex Outlet Covers
Duplex power outlets are found in all homes and businesses. Providing two outlets of standard power stacked on top of each other, they are essential for running appliances, lights, and more.
Many new duplex outlets come with a matching cover. However, if you're looking to replace something that's been broken, or if you'd like to switch up the look of a room, TOPGREENER can help. We have a large inventory of duplex wall plate covers in various sizes, colors, and configurations.
If there's something specific you're looking for that you can't find online, get in touch with us to speak with a member of our customer service team.
Sizes and Specifications
TOPGREENER sells duplex outlet covers in 1-gang, 2-gang, and larger sizes. This metric refers to the plate's width — 1-gang covers fit a single column of two outlets, whereas larger covers fit progressively larger groups of outlets. Most residential properties contain 1-gang or 2-gang outlets. Offices often require combination or multi-outlet plates.
Switch plate cover sizes are generally standardized. As a result, our products can act as replacements for almost any brand of duplex outlets. If you're not sure, measure before placing an order. If you want an outlet and plate that match perfectly, consider purchasing them as a set from our online store.
We offer our customers two material options for duplex wall plate covers:
Thermoplastic: Thermoplastic duplex outlet covers offer superior flexibility and long-term performance. Thermoplastic has the traditional look and feel that most people associate with outlet covers while improving durability. Several colors are available, including white, black, ivory, and light almond.
Stainless steel: For a sleek, modern look, consider stainless steel. Stainless steel outlet plates match trendy modern appliances and countertops, providing a more unified aesthetic. The material won't rust or warp when exposed to heat and humidity, making it an excellent choice for harsh and high-traffic commercial spaces too.
Why Replace Your Outlet Covers?
Your choice of duplex switch covers may be a relatively minor decision, but as designers know, it's these small details that can elevate a room. Consider purchasing new duplex switch plates if:
You're renovating and need to replace your outlets anyway: Choose a quality product first for long-term reliability and performance.
You want to change up the look of a room: New outlets covers are a subtle upgrade that, on their own or along with other changes, can have a significant impact on how a space looks and feels.
You want something that will last: A small investment in a well-made duplex outlet plate can save you the hassle of having to replace a cheaper alternative when it eventually breaks.

Duplex Wall Plates
Duplex plates fit over a standard two-plug power outlet or larger power connection.
Products are made from stainless steel and unbreakable polycarbonate — two highly durable options that offer much better long-term performance and value than conventional plastic models. Visit individual product pages for more information.
1-Gang vs. 2-Gang vs. 3-Gang
The terms 1-gang, 2-gang, 3-gang and so on refer to the number of switches it can support. 1-gang units house a single toggle switch or a duplex power outlet. In a 2-gang unit, you'll see a pair of switches next to each other — common when you have multiple lighting circuits in a room.
1-gang, 2-gang, and 3-gang wall plates are generally uniform in size — standard dimensions are 4.5 by 2.75 inches for a 1-gang switch, though oversized product lines also exist. It's always best to check the dimensions of any product before you purchase.
Beyond the configuration and sizing, other factors to think about when buying wall plates include child safety — some models have covers and additional features to prevent little fingers from touching electrical components — and whether the unit screws or snaps on. Screwless wall plates are just as easy to install as standard wall plates and have a cleaner look.
