New Storage Solutions Ship from Chief

Chief is now shipping new storage solutions including the PAC527 Extra-Large In-Wall Storage Box, the CSPR Component Storage Panel, and the CSPH Under-Table Component Storage Panel.

The PAC527 Extra-Large In-Wall Storage Box simplifies flat panel installation by providing an organized, recessed space for routing excess cables and AV components.

A multi-level, multi-sectioned backplane with universal mounting slots makes it easier to arrange components and maximize the space available in all three dimensions. This helps installers be more flexible with difficult port locations on AV equipment. As with Chief’s other in-wall boxes, the PAC527 features break away edges that make it compatible with both standard 3.5” studs and 2.5” studs so installers can easily accommodate any stud depth on site. Knockouts for single gang outlets and 1.25, 1 and 0.5” conduit are built in.

Bundles are available with box, flange and cover combinations. The PAC527 can be ordered with isolated ground four or six receptacle outlets featuring multi-stage filtration and surge protection to improve reliability and functionality of connected equipment.

  • Enclosure UL 2416 Listed
  • Backplane ships in two sections and can be broken down into a total of four smaller sections
  • Printable backplane template for planning purposes
  • Provides a larger, easy-to-organize space to accommodate AV equipment – 22″ (559 millimeters) tall
  • Pre- and post-construction installation options

The CSPH Under-Table Component Storage Panel provides storage while eliminating the mess of components and cables underneath conference room tables and desks. With over 350 square inches (2258 square centimeters) of secure attachment area, it’s for ensuring efficient and consistent component placement over large rollouts. Once installed, the CSPH pivots 90° to allow easier access in vertical position.

  • 1/3 and 2/3 breakaways in case less space is required
  • Brackets available separately to use extra breakaway space elsewhere
  • Shipped with template to ensure accurate mounting of brackets
  • Security locking screws
  • Handle for ease of transport, install and maneuvering of panel

Another new organization option from Chief – the CSPR Component Storage Panel – provides over 160 square inches (1032 square centimeters) of secure attachment area for AV equipment independent of display mounts. A handle provides easier access while securing equipment or installing behind the display. Technicians can remove the CSPR to service equipment without removing the display. This solution is ideal for standardizing the deployment of AV component configuration across large projects.

  • Installs behind or along any wall mount or display
  • Removable for component service without moving the display
  • Security locking mechanism

Here are all the details.
