In-Wall Boxes go BIG at InfoComm
New storage solution offers more room and organization

Eden Prairie, Minn., USA (JUNE 2017) - - Chief, an industry leader in AV mounting solutions, is launching a new in-wall box that offers more room and exceptional organization possibilities at InfoComm booth 2600.

The PAC527 Extra-Large In-Wall Storage Box simplifies flat panel installation by providing an organized, recessed space for routing excess cables and AV components. 

A multi-level, multi-sectioned backplane with universal mounting slots makes it easier to arrange components and maximize the space available in all three dimensions. This helps installers be more flexible with difficult port locations on AV equipment. As with Chief’s other in-wall boxes, the PAC527 features break away edges that make it compatible with both standard 3.5” studs and 2.5” studs so installers can easily accommodate any stud depth on site. Knockouts for single gang outlets and 1.25, 1 and 0.5” conduit are built in.

“The PAC527 provides space for more equipment and the back plane helps installers arrange or mount the components in advance before attaching wires on site,” said Gina Schneider, Product Manager.

Bundles are available with box, flange and cover combinations. The PAC527 can be ordered with high-performance, isolated ground 4 or 6 receptacle outlets featuring SurgeX® non-sacrificial multi-stage filtration and surge protection to improve reliability and functionality of connected equipment.

The PAC527 is certified to UL 2416 for enclosure systems.

Another new organization option from Chief – the CSPR Component Storage Panel – will be making its debut at InfoComm. The CSPR provides over 160 square inches of secure attachment area for AV equipment independent of display mounts. A handle provides easier access while securing equipment or installing behind the display. Technicians can remove the CSPR to service equipment without removing the display. This solution is ideal for standardizing the deployment of AV component configuration across large projects.

See the PAC527 and CSPR along with additional power and storage solutions at InfoComm booth 2600.
