ARLINGTON FSC405R Sconce Box

I am wondering, if this particular low profile box can be considered WEATHERPROOF?

Arlington FSC405R Non-Metallic Low Profile Sconce Box 4 Inch x 0.5 Inch 5 Cubic-Inch

If I want a low profile box for a front porch sconce and I want to avoid having a box sticking out 1.5" is this my best bet?

I looked around and was hoping BELL or REDDOT might have something but couldn't find anything.

It's not called a weatherproof box. The back is not sealed. It's designed to be installed in a 1/2" or 5/8" wall. Depending on the size of the sconce canopy...... you can use a metal pancake box as long as the canopy fits tight to or can be sealed to the wall.

I don't know of any dedicated weatherproof pancake box.
