Quick & easy to install
Flush mounted in-desk box
Our elegant, versatile and durable Tardis in surface power and data box is an ideal solution for meeting tables, where easy access to multiple sockets is required from all sides.
Tardis comprises twin natural anodised aluminium extruded hinged lids with a central brush strip cable channel. Innovative cable guides attached to each lid, guide power and data cables into the brush strip channel as the lids are closed thereby preventing trapped cables.
The Tardis powder coated steel under desk caddy can be specified with a wide range of power and data/AV options including our class leading TUF USB charger. Alternatively Tardis can be supplied without a caddy for use as an access port to an under desk cable tray.
Tardis has been designed for flush fitting in desk and table tops and is therefore ideally installed in factory routed rebated cut outs.
