PWB-CMU Family of Project Boxes and Components

The PWB-CMU8 is a flat panel TV project box engineered for installation in 8-inch block walls, perfect for gymnasiums, auditoriums, stadiums, schools and numerous other masonry applications. The all metal CMU8 is designed to replace the front portion of one block and, with the optional paintable cover, provides an attractive surface with no visible jagged block edges. 

Inside the box are two opposing two-gang device boxes, providing space for power and low voltage devices. These compartments are convertible to a single gang for installing active brick receivers and accommodating standard electrical plates. The gang compartments are over-sized to allow for extra service loops and cable storage and with a depth of 3.25-inches for even the largest of the active electronic wall-plates.

PWB-CMU-HNGWHT: Hinged cover option

An additional cover option is also available for the PWB-CMU8 2-gang wall box that allows the cover of the box to be locked while providing cable access. Designed for left or right swing, the cover features a large, hinged door and two small, hinged door cable exits. A flat key lock and lockable ¼-turn latch is provided so cable ends can be housed internally behind a closed or locked door, protecting the cable and connectors from damage and barring unsightly protrusions into the space.

Smart-Way Raceway Family Featuring new Wall Unit

FSR’s Smart-Way Raceway is the most cost-effective and easiest way to get power, data and AV across the room to where it’s needed making it the intelligent choice for offices, conference rooms, collaborative work environments, or anywhere wire management is desired. 

At BICSI, FSR is spotlighting the new Smart-Way Wall Raceway that provides the ability to transition from a floor to ceiling Raceway system. The Wall Unit consists of a ceiling flex conduit feed with soft edges for easy wiring and features floor to wall transition and new edging, Available in slate and aluminum, the Smart-Way Wall Raceway offers the same clean look as the floor version.

PWB-320 Wall Box and Fan

FSR is also showing the PWB-320, a member of the company’s widely popular Wall Box line of solutions. The PWB-320 is an economical, large open wall box designed to fit 16-inch on center stud bays and simplify audiovisual and IT installations by providing space for routing cables, AC connections, and digital media product mounting in 4-inch and 3-inch-thick walls. The PWB-320 has up to 2-inch KO’s (PWB-323 up to 1¼-inch), flush cable-tie mounts, tri-use gang openings for AC/AV/IT applications, IPS mounting, and two optional adjustable locking shelves for mounting equipment.

The PWB-320 Wall Box Fan is a thermostat controlled variable speed fan. As the heat inside the wall box rises the speed of the fan increases, keeping equipment inside at a safe temperature.

FL-400 Floor Box with U-Access Hinged Cover   

The FL-400 is an all-in-one unit that incorporates innovation, quality, durability, and longevity and challenges the concept that only a specific floor box can accommodate a certain floor type. One premium 5-inch depth floor box can be installed in wood, concrete or raised access flooring with a cutting-edge design that allows for a fully divided 4-gang or semi-divided/undivided five-gang internal configuration. Using this system, both high and low voltage configurations, along with compartment isolation, can be implemented “on the fly”. 

FSR’s “Tool-less” u-access cover now features a hinged design allowing for smooth entry. The hinge provides an added ease of functionality, while the u-access handle makes access to connections a breeze. No more tooling around with hard to open floor box covers.
