Modified enclosures simplify installation
Channel Vision, a manufacturer of technology for connected homes, has renovated its 19-inch enclosures to feature larger electrical knockouts than previous models. The modification provides more space for installers to work and facilitates the installation of networking modules. The company has also reinforced its packaging of all enclosure and cover doors to protect products from any damage inflicted while in transit.

Electrical knockouts on 19-in. enclosures are now 2.36 in., larger than the previous model (1.75 in.). With the extra space, Channel Vision believes installers will be able to work more quickly and efficiently with networking products in the enclosure.
“We aim to accommodate the installer as best as possible when designing our products,” stated Channel Vision president Darrel Hauk. “Larger electrical knockouts will alleviate some of the hassle and frustration that comes with networking. A bit more space in the back and sides of the enclosure can go a long way in saving time, and therefore in keeping customers happy.”
Channel Vision has been one of the top manufacturers of structured wiring products for over 25 years and currently offers the largest selection of enclosures on the market. Enclosure sizes include 12 in., 19 in., 28 in., 38 in. and 50 in. The company also manufactures extension rings for 50 in. enclosures that allow up to 100 in. of functional enclosure space for larger projects.
Channel Vision recently released 12 in. plastic enclosures with built-in cover doors. These enclosures are sold in master packs of five, and function as an efficient and economical solution for production builders. On the other end of the spectrum, Channel Vision’s tinted designer glass doors and framed double doors offer an attractive alternative to the typical look of a structured wiring unit for custom and luxury homes.
