Legrand | AV has introduced new On-Q enhanced plastic structured wiring media enclosures for wired and wireless low-voltage systems Wednesday. Now made in the U.S., the plastic enclosures feature a new reversible hinged door with toolless installation, a free integrated trim ring, added structural rigidity and other features designed to help residential installers save time.
Besides an included trim ring for concealing imperfections in drywall, the new On-Q enclosures have a unique hinge design that allows the door to snap quickly into and out of the trim ring for faster installation without tools. Moreover, the hinge is reversible, so the door can swing left or right within a 180-degree range to maximize installation space. The door also includes new locking capabilities, with the option to install a lock and key to keep components safe before and after commissioning. The hinged door and trim add 1.2 inches of extra enclosure depth for compatibility with a higher number of third-party devices, such as service providers’ modems, Wi-Fi routers and uninterruptible power supplies.
The enclosures are made from UL-rated ABS plastic, so installers can secure wireless devices such as wireless routers, access points or service provider equipment in the cabinet without degrading network performance. The various-sized top and bottom knockouts allow for simple on-site installation and easy management of cables running to the enclosure. They include screwdriver holes for easy removal.
The On-Q enclosures come in three sizes — 20-inch, 30-inch and 42-inch — and can be purchased as a kit, separately or in five-packs. Optional accessories include a universal mounting plate, fiber management spools, cable management clips, rubber grommets for knockouts and keyed locks.
