Legrand today 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, A/V, and power capacity, and eliminates the need for junction boxes because of industry-first internally wired connections. Users can mix and match devices, ports and receptacles to configure each of the eight gangs to suit their individual requirements.
Legrand says they are the first manufacturer to offer wired connections inside a poke-thru device; 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 die-cast aluminum 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 degrees to open. When compared to traditional flip-top covers, the fully open cover is expected to reduce tripping incidents.
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. Aesthetically updated, the cover has a symmetrical design with a built-in handle for easy access and is available in eight finishes, enabling designers and specifiers to better coordinate it with a room’s decor.
The device is UL-listed and UL-fire-classified for up to two hours in accordance with U.S. and Canadian safety standards. It also meets all scrub water requirements.
