  • The Problem

    The recent Winter Olympics gave the world many examples of speed and agility. The same can be said of Legrand/Wiremold. The Vancouver Olympic Committee needed to provide power and data access for 19 media facilities, including the International Media Centre and Olympic venues. With global Olympic coverage depending on the media having reliable power and access to data/communications, they needed a proven solution. And, of course, time was of the essence.

    The Solution

    The solution was prewired 5400 Series raceway from Legrand/Wiremold. The raceway was designed specially to meet the needs of the media and manufactured in 6 ft. and 8 ft. sections. Not only did Legrand/Wiremold deliver on time, but sections were shipped with site-specific catalogue numbers and bundled for easy shipment from the VANOC central distribution center to each of the venues.

    The nonmetallic, two-compartment raceway was mounted on the surface of the media tables with receptacles and data jacks facing up so that members of the media could make quick and secure connections. 5400 Series Raceway provided the capacity and low profile required for the Olympic media facilities – and the speed to get up and running on a tight deadline.
