Legrand Introduces a Broad Range of Meeting Room Solutions
Designed to help A/V professionals achieve efficient, aesthetic results
WEST HARTFORD, Conn., June 4, 2014 – Middle Atlantic Products, a group brand of Legrand, offers a suite of Wiremold® solutions that enhance the productivity of meeting rooms through advanced cable management that is tailored for audio/video applications. These Meeting Room Solutions are especially valuable where existing space is being reconfigured to accommodate new work styles and a greater use of A/V. These products will be on display at the Middle Atlantic booth (C9325) during InfoComm 2014 and are available through the Middle Atlantic dealer network.
According to Product Manager Jeff McDermott, Meeting Room Solutions are designed to help A/V integrators overcome structural obstacles that stand in the way of effective installations. ”They have to work with how a room is configured and their biggest challenge is often to bring services to conference tables and other work surfaces. They are conscientious about the aesthetics of the job and want to make cables and components invisible yet accessible for future needs.”
Legrand Meeting Room Solutions include InteGreat™ Series products that have built-in flexibility to manage cabling over the “last meter” to the point of use. They make A/V, data and communications systems more accessible and easier to use while also hiding cords and cables to reduce clutter and trip hazards. These products include InteGreat Transition Channel, InteGreat Series Cable Management, and InteGreat Series A/V Table Box. They are not only designed to work seamlessly with each other, but they also integrate with a wide variety of Wiremold wire and cable management systems such as the Evolution™ Series, OFR overfloor raceway, work surface modular power and Vista Point5 Columns.
The Evolution™ Series Flat Screen Wall Box is available in 4-gang and 2-gang options that offer complete flexibility for any combination of connectivity devices. This box supports a digital display and features unique removable device modules that support industry-standard device plates that can be detached and removed for easier installation and to facilitate moves, adds and changes. The 4-gang box holds two device modules. The 2-gang version has one module with storage space for active A/V components.
The Evolution™ Series Ceiling Box fits above a false or permanent ceiling to provide storage for electronic A/V and IT equipment, and to support a projector, if required. The six versions include three units with a projector mount, and several options for electrical circuitry. These boxes are designed for conference rooms, classrooms, training facilities, or anywhere a projector and/or A/V equipment is needed and where large racks or furniture storage are not practical.
Evolution™ Series poke-thru devices offer a truly flush, all-metal cover assembly that allows easy device access with unique spring-loaded slide cable egress doors. These open-system devices accept industry-standard communications and A/V devices from various manufacturers.
OFR Series Overfloor Raceway is the smallest, lowest, narrowest, and ADA-compliant overfloor raceway system. Designed for relocatable or permanent installations where access through floors and ceilings is not an option. Unlike some products, this overfloor raceway system attaches directly to floor covering, including carpet, tile, and wood so installers do not have to remove or cut into existing floor coverings.
Work Surface Modular Power Kits are ideal for meeting rooms that serve multiple functions, such as presentation, training and collaboration, and where presenters and attendees need access to power, no matter what the room layout. These kits are sized to outfit 5’ or 6' tables with plug-and-play power and include table boxes, power whips, mounting clamps and cable covers.
The Vista Point5 Column is a floor-mounted pedestal that provides easy access to A/V connections. Its unobtrusive design and can be mounted as a table leg, which clears space on top of the conference room table while allowing for easy access to power, data and A/V connections and keeps the floor free from cords and cables.
