Premier Mounts‘ false ceiling equipment storage boxes, the GB-AVSTOR series, are now plenum-rated and permitted to be installed within environmental air spaces.
Equipment installed in air-handling spaces, or plenums, must meet installation code requirements for smoke and flammability performance. The UL 2043 certification is a fire test for heat and visible smoke release for discrete products and their accessories installed in air-handling spaces. Equipment installed in plenums must meet specific requirements, making it beneficial for manufacturers to test for UL 2043 compliance. UL has more than 100 years of fire testing and certification expertise.
“The UL 2043 certification for our entire line of GB-AVSTOR false ceiling equipment storage boxes is a great achievement for Premier Mounts. We are fully dedicated to continually providing the utmost in quality products, including ensuring the safety of these products for our consumers,” said Mike Bouissiere, design and engineering manager at Premier Mounts. “The GB-AVSTOR series of false ceiling storage equipment boxes provides a safety certified secure and discreet storage for AV and IT components, and ensures a clean and organized room environment.”
The ceiling boxes GB-AVSTOR3 and GB-AVSTOR5 replace a standard 2×2 ft. ceiling tile, the GB-AVSTOR4 replace a half of standard 2×2 ft. ceiling tile
