This 28" On-Q
enclosure (EN2800) is the perfect solution for a basic structured wiring system.
It features three large top openings that make pulling wire easier as well as
additional knockouts, side lances, and side tabs for more flexible
mounting. It even includes two bottom panel knockouts for mounting two duplex
receptacles. It includes a screw-on cover.
Note: The On-Q/Legrand Core Line Enclosures are available in four
sizes - 14", 20", 28", and 42". Each enclosure features a screw on cover.
The 28" and 42" is also available with a hinged cover.
Steel Construction: The On-Q enclosure features a rugged 20-guage
steel housing and cover with durable power-coat finish in white.
- Steel Housing: The housing features two 6" wide x
26" tall rail
sections to accommodate your On-Q telephone, RG6, Audio/Video, LAN, and Security
modules. The On-Q modules (sold separately) easily snap-in.
- Screw-On Cover: The steel screw-on cover attaches to the steel
housing by 4 supplied machine screws.
Identification Labels: The structured wired enclosure comes supplied with a
self-adhesive cable identification table which can be placed on the back side of
the cover so you can easily identify your cables and wiring.
Placement: The On-Q structured wired enclosure should be centrally located in the house to
minimize the length of cable runs and in a climate controlled area. Temperature
must be from 32-degrees to 122-degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity is to be controlled
to not condense inside the enclosure.
Mounting: The enclosure may be either surface mounted or recess
mounted between two studs installed on 16 inch centers.
- Surface Mounting: Typical surface mounting is on a 3/4" inch
plywood back board and attaching the enclosure to your wall with wood screws
- Recessed Mounting: There are two methods for recess mounting the
On-Q enclosure. In half inch drywall installations the enclosure may be
mounted to the front of the studs using standard screw (sold separately).
Alternatively, you may position the enclosure to the desired height and
fasten to the sides of the studs using the slots in the tabs.
Grounding: The On-Q enclosure must be grounded. The ground cable is to
be routed from the enclosure to the house electrical ground. The ground screw is
located inside the bottom of the enclosure. Use a minimum of 14 AWG copper
