At the upcoming InfoComm show in Orlando, Wireworks is introducing Guardian Panel Mounts that help protect connectors from accidental damage by providing an easy way of recessing connectors in a wall or standard electrical box.
A simple, cleverly designed and engineered steel recessing ring, the Guardian Panel Mount increases connector safety when used as a recessed low-voltage mounting ring or when installed in NEMA-style surface-mount or flush-mounted electrical boxes.
“Wireworks Guardian Panel Mounts offer a simple solution to the longstanding problem of connector damage,” says Gerald Krulewicz, president of Wireworks Corporation. “We are using the same technique that we’ve seen on the side of remote and news-gathering trucks for years. By implementing that concept, we have made it simply available to the installation and AV industry at large.”
As a recessed low-voltage ring, a Guardian Panel Mount can be easily mounted directly into a wall or anywhere else by using mounting screws, fasteners or toggle bolts. A custom connector panel is then attached to the recessed flange, providing protected connectivity.
When used in conjunction with an electrical box, the Guardian Panel Mount can be ordered in the exact box size for surface-mount installations.
Alternatively, the panel mount can be ordered with a flange one inch larger than the electrical box for flush-mounted applications, effectively enabling the wide flange to cover any seam between the box and the surrounding wall.
Guardian Panel Mounts are available with a recessed depth of one or two inches. Most NEMA electrical box sizes can be accommodated.
Guardian Panel Mounts are manufactured in heavy gauge steel with welded and ground corners. Eight pre-drilled holes on the outer flange provide easy mounting. Eight tapped holes on the recessed flange facilitate mounting of connection panels.
Panel mounts can be ordered in virtually any size with custom paint finishes for adherence to any on-site architectural requirements. Wireworks Perfect Custom Panels and LumaVue Plates & Panels can also be ordered specifically for use with Guardian Panel Mounts and can be delivered ready to install complete with connectors and engraving to your design.
Wireworks will be at booth 5221 at the 2009 InfoComm show in Orlando.
