Greening the Vatican
November 26, 2008
The new OWB-X Outdoor Wall Boxes are the only wall boxes on the market designed for specifically AV, IT and Control. Locking doors in brushed aluminum are standard with other color and style options available upon request. These stylish covers have "flip up" cable entry doors so that the main cover door can be locked once the cables are connected. Two box styles are available that will allow for either flush "in wall" or surface "on wall" mounting.
The enclosures are constructed in NEMA-4 style and with the integral door will meet the NEMA-3 and 3R ratings providing protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet and snow.
