New Wiremold® Floor Box Brings Innovation to All Types of Floor
WEST HARTFORD, Conn., August 31, 2011 – Legrand/Wiremold has introduced the industry’s most advanced series of floor boxes that offer high capacity and multi-functional capability for power, communications and audio/video. The Wiremold® Evolution™ Series Floor Box has unique design features that allow the same box to be installed in raised, carpet-covered concrete, terrazzo, polished concrete and wood floors without additional parts or accessories. Boxes are available in 6-, 8- and 10-gang configurations for standard, on-grade and fire-classified applications. A furniture-feed box is also offered.
In a feature unique to the Evolution Series Floor Box, the modules that support industry-standard single-, double-, and triple-gang device plates can be detached and removed through the top or back of the box. This allows for easier installation by multiple trades over different times during the construction cycle. The removable modules also facilitate moves, adds and changes to the box as services do not need to be entirely disconnected and reconnected.
The inside of the box, which is fully finished and painted white for better visibility, has ample work space in front of and behind device plates. Integrated management guides keep cables organized and make it easier to feed them through the egress doors. Knockout sizes range from ¾” to 2”. Knockout plates can be removed for even greater capacity.
The Evolution Series Floor Box cover features a patent-pending egress door system that locks into position when the box is open, but automatically closes around cables when the cover is shut. The cover swings open a full 180 degrees to provide easier access and guard against damage or trip hazards. Evolution Series Floor Boxes feature TopGuard™ protection against scrubwater, are UL listed, and are suitable for use in air handling spaces.
Low-profile, ADA-compliant covers are available in standard and flush styles with solid surfaces or generous carpet cut-outs. These die-cast aluminum covers are available in black, brass, bronze, gray and nickel powder coat finishes.
