FSR, a manufacturer of audio and video switching control products and connectivity boxes, unveiled a new ceiling box—the CB-224—with a deeper design developed to hold applications requiring more internal equipment than FSR’s previous ceiling boxes, the CB-12 and CB-22.
“The CB-224 is the largest unit in our popular CB Ceiling enclosure series,” says Jan Sandri, FSR’s president. “Its capacity to support 50 pounds for a projector, and 12 pounds on each shelf makes it ideal for any venue requiring a robust ceiling mount.”
The CB-224 is designed for conference centers, schools, meeting and training facilities, airports and museums, FSR says. The unit’s advanced deep box design has a pull-down 4 RU cage with gas-spring assisted ball-bearing slide, and a 2 RU of angle-adjustable rack-mounting surfaces on either end of the cage facilitate mounting and visibility of 1RU/2RU patch panels.
Clear space on both sides allows for wire bundles to traverse parallel to the cage after installation, and each side of the box has an edge-protected bundled cable inlet cavity, filled with flame retardant foam seal, FSR says. The interior of the CB-224 is complete with 5 internal outlets, 1 external outlet, and a fan, and it is available in four versions including with or without a pole-mount for a projector, or “smart” electronics, the company says.
