This box can handle more wires then a pancake box but it is larger then a piece of drywall. It can be used in a ceiling medallion rosette or a plaster coin. This box can also be use with custom carpentry where there is some build out of framing members  for the ceiling fan. Occasionally a piece of wood is mounted between in the general ares of the fan during rough in of a house. The a hole is cut for this box to be installed.
