Product Release: Legrand/Wiremold Expands Line of Advanced Floor Boxes
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Legrand/Wiremold has introduced an advanced four-compartment recessed floor box for concrete floors, including bare concrete and terrazzo. The Resource RFB4E Series floor box accepts 6" round Evolution™ Series Poke-Thru covers that are available in three styles and five colors.
The RFB4E Series floor box provides ample capacity where a larger box is not required. This box extends the industry-leading line of Wiremold® floor boxes and poke-thru devices that use the same Evolution covers for improved aesthetics throughout a building and ensure the same look when floor boxes and poke-thru devices are used in the same space.
The RFB4E Series floor box is available for on-grade and above-grade construction and is fully adjustable before and after the concrete pour. Twenty-six knockouts on the sides and bottom, ranging in size from ¾" to 2", provide maximum installation flexibility. A proprietary conduit hub accepts 2" conduit to bring more cables into the 4" deep box. Removable dividers and a detachable side plate facilitate pass-through tunneling.
The four internal compartments support power, communications, and audio/video applications with generous space (3 ½” behind the device plates) for installing devices and managing cable bend requirements.
Evolution Series poke-thru covers are available in surface, flush and furniture feed designs. A unique ring and mud-cap assembly allows the cover to be installed in polished concrete and terrazzo floors. Covers are available in nickel, brass, bronze, black, and gray powder-coat finishes. Each cover features two spring-loaded slide cable egress doors and TopGuard™ protection that prevents water, dirt, and debris from entering device compartments. Evolution poke-thru covers are UL Listed to U.S. and Canadian standards for tile, terrazzo, carpet, and wood floors.
