LEGRAND INTRODUCES EVOLUTION SERIES 10-INCH POKE-THRU DEVICE — AV.technology
Legrand has introduced its newest addition to the Wiremold product line — the Evolution Series 10-inch poke-thru device. Designed with a durable cover assembly, the device offers eight individual gangs of communication, AV, and power capacity, and eliminates the need for junction boxes because of internally wired connections. Users can mix and match devices, ports, and receptacles to configure each of the eight gangs to suit their individual requirements.
“Seven years ago, Legrand patented the invention of the recessed poke-thru. Now, with the new Evolution 10-inch device, we bring this category to a new level, offering the most connectivity of any poke-thru device on the market,” said Mike Cole, senior product manager for Legrand’s Wiremold product line. “We expect the new Evolution 10-inch poke-thru device to be particularly attractive to AV integrators not only because of its capacity, but because of its custom configuration.” As an example, it can accommodate a standard, three-gang digital media device, six ports of communication, and four duplex power receptacles. That’s a lot of capacity in one unit.”
Legrand is also the first manufacturer to offer wired connections inside a poke-thru device — a fact that eliminates the need for a junction box. As a result, the device occupies much less vertical space or depth in the floor and is therefore less obtrusive when installed in open-ceiling buildings.
The Evolution 10-inch poke-thru installs easily, making it an ideal choice for both retrofit and new-construction applications. To make service additions and changes, users simply lift the unit out of its installed position in the floor.
The device’s heavy-duty, die-cast aluminium covers are built to withstand up to 700 pounds of pressure as well as the heavy traffic encountered in open spaces. Covers are manufactured with a durable, self-aligning hinge assembly and swivel a full 180° to open.
Evolution Series 10-inch poke-thru devices are designed with spring-loaded, patented slide egress doors that not only accommodate the space required for cables to exit the device, but also shut automatically when the user closes the cover. The cover has a symmetrical design with a built-in handle for easy access and is available in eight finishes.
