Overview: This 28" On-Q enclosure (EN2850) 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 hinged 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.

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.
- Hinged Cover: The hinged cover attaches to the steel
housing by 5 supplied machine screws. The hinged cover features a lock and

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.

inch plywood back board and attaching the enclosure to your wall with wood
screws (not supplied).
- 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
