The RapcoHorizon Company, leading manufacturers of audio and video interfacing and cable equipment, is featuring its Floor Pocket Box and Mini Floor Boxes at CEDIA 2008 (Booth 336). The two products were developed for fixed installations such as stage applications in theaters, schools, gymnasiums, church balconies, corporate installations, and video and audio production facilities.
“One of the most demanding applications for providing convenient signal connecting points is the floor mounted connector box,” says Darius Seabaugh, VP of Marketing for The RapcoHorizon Company. “The Floor Pocket Box and the Mini Floor Box, solve installation problems by providing a generous array of connector options in an extremely robust package capable of withstanding rigorous use. We believe these products will have a positive impact on installations requiring floor mounted connectors.”
The Floor Pocket Box is designed for permanent installations requiring multiple microphone, speaker and/or video connectors. Available insert plates include a 5″ plate that can accommodate up to eight connectors, and the 8″ plate, which holds up to 16 connectors. The mounting flange and lid are fabricated from sturdy 3/16″ steel with a black finish. Standard size electrical conduit knockouts are provided left and right for easy cable insertion and strain relief on boxes of either 5″ or 8″ depths. Standard factory configured insert plates include the FBI6-DF offering six D3F connectors, the FBI8-DF with eight D3F connectors, the DBI12-DF accommodating 12 D3F connectors and the FBI-B.PC panel blank.
The Mini Floor Box is intended for installations requiring up to only four connectors for microphone, speaker and/or video applications. This product is additionally perfect in consort with the larger Floor Pocket Box to add connection accessibility to a remote area of a larger installation. The Mini Floor Box is constructed from 16-gauge steel with a black finish and comes in only a 5″ depth version. Standard size electrical conduit knockouts are provided left and right for easy cable insertion and strain relief. The Mini Floor Box ships with a blank insert plate that can be user configured. Custom factory configurations are also available.
Both the Floor Pocket Box and Mini Floor Box come with the options of three distinct lid designs: the flap, gap and hole lids, which offer a variety of choices for the appearance and function of the floor box. The flap is ideal for applications when running cables on occasion, the gap is best for continuous runs of cable while the hole is the designed as a mouse hole lid for traditional use.
