Important note: If combing low voltage devices such as phone, cable, or ethernet jacks with regular line-voltage devices such as light switches, dimmers, and outlets, a physical barrier or standard partition must exist between the low voltage communication jacks and any line-voltage devices in the electrical wall box. Buy dual low voltage and line electrical boxes.

Custom Made Wallplates: If you need a very odd size and your job specs don't allow inserts, custom switchplate configurations can be made. Note that if you are just ordering one or two, the plates will be expensive. However, if you are ordering in quantity, the prices fall with the amount ordered, often ending up closer to that of standard cover plate pricing. Special orders have a $100 minimum, take 6 weeks to receive, can cost up to 4 times the cost of a standard stocked plate (for small quantities) and must be paid in full prior to ordering.
