Middle Atlantic Intros Home Wiring and Power Infrastructure Solution for Behind TVs

Middle Atlantic Products debuted the Proximity Series AV storage solution at CEDIA 2017. The Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate and In-Wall Boxes provide integrators with a flexible offering to reliably support the growing network of small devices and component-intense systems in residential applications right behind the display.

The Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate is designed to mount directly to the wall behind the display. Integrators need only to slide the plate out and unhook it from the sliding mechanism for installation and servicing. They can mount small devices onto the 15-inch by 10-inch mounting space and service them without the additional time and labor of removing the display.

For even more AV systems storage capacity of component-intense systems, the Proximity Series now includes an in-wall box designed to fit both 16-inch and 24-inch stud bays. Engineered to provide convenient, recessed storage for localized, all-in-one system support, this versatile solution can be placed vertically to mount easily into a 16-inch stud bay or horizontally to fit within a commercial-sized 24-inch stud bay.

Both the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate and the In-Wall Box solutions feature Middle Atlantic’s patented, tool-free Lever Lock system, which accommodates, conceals and reliably mounts a range of AV components to speed up serviceability.

Here are all the tech specs.
