MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Legrand | AV announced that its new On-Q Dual-Purpose In-Wall Enclosures are now available. Recipients of the CTA® 2021 Mark of Excellence Award in the “Rack or Mount Product of the Year” category, the solutions are offered in 9-inch (ENP0900-NA) and 17-inch (ENP1700-NA) form factors and can be used for AV storage behind a TV or as enclosures for structured wiring.
“Our new Dual-Purpose In-Wall Enclosures represent the next step in the evolution of plastic enclosures and the role they play in bringing the connected home to life,” said James Rutherford, On-Q product manager for Legrand | AV. “Whether used for storage behind the TV or as structured wiring enclosures, the units combine unmatched flexibility with convenient features — such as a split cover and included trim ring — that have made On-Q the go-to brand for installers.”
When placed behind a TV, the Dual-Purpose In-Wall Enclosures are designed to conveniently house cable boxes, streaming players, and more. The 17-inch solution is also compatible with the popular 4K and 8K Samsung One-Connect Box, while its split cover was designed for use with split-rail TV mounts, allowing integrators to access components after the TV mount is installed. Additional access is provided by open channels at the top and bottom of the enclosure, which also provide passive ventilation.
When used as enclosures for structured wiring, the Dual-Purpose In-Wall Enclosures provide a centralized area to store video, voice, and data components, such as Luxul’s new compact 4-port SW-100-04P and 8-port SW-100-08P Gigabit PoE+ switches. The in-wall boxes’ WiFi-transparent ABS plastic construction ensures a strong signal from ISP modems/wireless routers. The 17-inch solution’s split cover accommodates tight installations — such as behind closet shelving — enabling users to access components without obstructions. The boxes’ top and bottom channels can be sealed with included inserts to keep out debris and dust.
For installation flexibility, the 9-inch and 17-inch solutions are available with a 5-inch mounting plate. ENP0905-NA-V1 and ENP1705-NA-V1 models include a mounting bracket (AC1050) that offers 1.5 inches of elevation, allowing for a second layer of mounting to free up space or accommodate bulky devices. The mounting bracket can also be purchased separately. Built-in hook and loop locations enable effortless cable management, while an included trim ring conceals messy drywall for a clean, professional look. The solutions are compatible with both On-Q structured wiring modules and those from other manufacturers.
