Infloor Activation Covers are More Durable, Easier to Use


WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Legrand/Wiremold has redesigned its FloorPort™ Series infloor activation covers to provide enhanced durability, improved function, and new designer colors.  FloorPort covers are fully compatible with new and legacy Resource RFB® Series floor boxes, and Walkercell® and Walkerdeck® systems.  These covers are designed for a wide range of applications, from schools and airports to offices and institutions.

Activation covers are subjected to considerable wear and tear from frequent opening and closing to connect power and data devices – not to mention foot traffic.  Re-engineered FloorPort covers have been improved in several ways.  A full-size handle makes the cover easy to open and close.  A more durable, one-piece articulated hinge allows the cover to open full 180° so it lies flat for less mechanical strain, easy access, and reduced trip hazards.  Egress doors have been made larger and have an automatic locking feature that prevents them from closing down and pinching wires and cables.

FloorPort covers are offered in flanged and flangeless styles, with and without cutouts for inserting flooring finishes.  A furniture feed option is also available.  Color options include nickel, bronze, brass, grey, black, and brushed aluminum.  These colors are consistent with covers for Evolution™ Series poke thru devices, floor boxes, and work surface portals.  Durable powder coat paint also reduces environmental impact.

FloorPort covers feature TopGuard™ protection that exceeds UL® scrub water standards and safeguards power and data compartments against water, dust and debris.  These covers are UL Listed to U.S. and Canadian safety standards for tile, terrazzo, carpet, and wood floors.
