Oberon Logo5 Model 1042-FL
Recessed Ceiling AP Install Kit - Old work style
Category: Wall and Hard Ceiling - Recess Mount

The Model 1042 series offers the simplest way to recess APs into existing hard (drywall/sheetrock) ceilings and walls for an aesthetic, professional installation. A cutout is made in the ceiling and the back-box is fastened to the ceiling. The AP fastens to the AP-specific trim, and the trim attaches to the to the back-box with torsion springs. The AP is recessed into the ceiling much like a recessed light fixture. AP trim is easily swapped for new trim when AP brand or model changes. (Model 1042-FL recesses AP entirely behind a low-profile ABS plastic cover). See configuration guide in specs for AP-specific trims. UL listed.
