Wiremold CCBBS Series ballroom floor boxes
By Anthony Capkun
Legrand/Wiremold introduced new floor boxes that withstand loads associated with wheeled vehicles in locations such as hotel ballrooms, exhibition halls, convention centres, etc. The CCBBS Series features heavy-duty covers and provides capacity for power, communication, and audio/video devices. The boxes are designed for both above- and on-grade concrete floors. (CCBBS-OG boxes have an epoxy coating as an extra layer of protection for when the box is used in contact with the earth.) Power options include standard duplex 20A and 30A receptacles, GFCI, hospital-grade and Turnlok receptacles. The open A/V system accommodates devices from a wide range of manufacturers. These boxes also feature designed-in features for ease of installation, including a minimum of 3 in. of wiring capacity behind each device face plate, 3/4-in. to 2-in. trade size knockouts, and a removable/repositionable divider. The cast aluminum cover has been designed and tested to meet static loads of 25,000 lb.
