Legrand | AV brand Middle Atlantic Products’ installation solutions are on display at this year’s ISE 2020 in Amsterdam at booth 2-C50.
The company’s Forward family of installation solutions are making their European debut at this year’s show, which includes a new 3D touchscreen tool for demonstrations. The product line includes features that deliver greater system reliability, efficiency and flexibility to the rack, the company said.
Forward is designed around a new rackrail and Middle Atlantic’s patented universal hole pattern, slowing the blank and vent panels, cable management and other rack solutions to be installed quickly and without unnecessary tools.
This gives integrators the ability to install every rack builds five times faster and with the same reliability and effectiveness as before, the company said.
The Forward family of solutions includes:
- Cable management that with horizontal and vertical options
- Power bracket to simplify any button-mount power strip installation
- Black and vent panels that clink into the new rackrail
- Small device mounting clamps to quickly mount and secure small non-rack mount devices vertically or horizontally without hardware
“We’re committed to providing more solutions and support for our European customers, and ISE provides us with a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate that,” said Tim Troast, VP of product management at Legrand | AV — Middle Atlantic. “Since its introduction, our Forward family has generated a lot of buzz in the region, and we can’t wait for integrators to see the speed it brings to their installations.”
