Legrand, a provider of power, light and data technologies, introduces its Evolution Series 10-inch poke-thru device that offers eight individual gangs of communication, audio video and power capacity, eliminates the need for junction boxes and is designed with a highly durable cover assembly. Users can mix and match devices, ports and receptacles to configure each of the eight gangs to suit their individual requirements.
Legrand is also the first manufacturer to offer wired connections inside a poke-thru device, eliminating 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 retrofit and new construction applications. And, for service additions and changes, simply lift the unit out of its installed position in the floor.
Heavy-duty, die-cast aluminum covers are built to withstand up to 700 pounds of pressure, as well as heavy traffic encountered in open spaces. Covers are manufactured with a durable, self-aligning hinge assembly and swivels open a full 180 degrees. 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.
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.
