Oberon Logo5 Model 1042-COAP9115
11 in. Recessed Wall and Hard-Lid Ceiling Existing Construction Installation Kit for Wi-Fi Access Points / Cisco 9115 Series AP Trim / Spring Attached
Category: Envelop
Shown with AP (not included)

The Model 1042 Envelop™ series offers the simplest way to mount APs and antennas into existing hard (drywall/sheetrock) ceilings and walls up to 1.5 in. thick, for an aesthetic, professional installation. A cutout is made in the ceiling and the all metal back-box is fastened into the ceiling. The AP or antenna fastens to the appropriate 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.
