Evolution™ Series Floor Box Is a Showstopper at NECA


NECA Showstopper


WEST HARTFORD, Conn. November 10, 2011 – The new Evolution™ Series Floor Box from Legrand/Wiremold received a “Showstopper” award at the recent National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) convention and tradeshow in San Diego. Sponsored by Electrical Contractor Magazine and judged by a panel of electrical contractors, the awards recognize the most innovative items featured in this year’s exhibition among many new products and services submitted.

“We’re thrilled to honor these innovations selected by electrical contractors around the country,” said Electrical Contractor publisher John Maisel. “They represent the best in emerging technologies for our industry and add excitement throughout the show, and they will most likely become the new standard for electrical contractors’ product expectations.”

The Evolution Series Floor Box is the industry’s most advanced series of floor boxes. They offer high capacity and multi-functional capability for power, communications and audio/video. Unique design features allow the same box to be installed in raised, carpet-covered concrete, terrazzo, polished concrete and wood floors without additional parts or accessories. Covers feature 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.
