Middle Atlantic Products (MAP) is demonstrating Forward—a family of installation solutions that are designed to deliver greater system reliability, efficiency, and flexibility to the rack—in the Legrand AV Booth 905 at CEDIA Expo 2019. With Forward’s new rackrail, integrators can put down the drill and install the family’s blank and vent panels, cable management, lighting, and other rack solutions without tools—completing the project in a fraction of the time while delivering an optimized system.
“The rack installation story is a tale of site transport woes, fumbling around pitch-black rooms, wrestling with cable spaghetti, and dealing with power blips. This adds up to hours spent toiling inside the rack,” said Paul Dolynchuk, director of product management at Legrand AV—Middle Atlantic Products. “We wanted to rewrite this story. Forward achieves the fastest possible installation while ensuring reliability. Now integrators can install today’s systems at tomorrow’s speed.”
MAP says Forward was born from its years of extensive research and draws upon continuous feedback regarding top integration pain points that the company solicits from its integrator community. The result is an accessory and options line designed with the entire system lifecycle in mind and built upon products that integrators have depended on for decades, according to the company. The rackrail, when coupled with Forward options, allows integrators to achieve rack layouts easily and with less time, labor, and hardware. The new rackrail will ship standard in MAP’s BGR Series and in additional enclosures in the near future.
To further simplify the design process, Middle Atlantic is also offering a BGR enclosure that comes preconfigured with Forward installation solutions and can be ordered using one simple part number. This preconfigured option gives integrators the assurance of the industry’s most trusted AV rack packed with the benefits of Forward.
