Oberon Logo5 Model 1043-ARAP535
11 in. Recessed Wall and Hard-Lid Ceiling New Construction Installation Kit for Wi-Fi Access Points / Aruba AP535 Trim / Spring Attached
Category: Envelop
Shown with AP (not included)

The Model 1043 Envelop™ series offers the simplest way to mount APs and antennas into new hard (drywall/sheetrock) ceilings and walls for an aesthetic, professional installation. The back-box is fastened to the ceiling joists, and the new ceiling is cut around the box. The AP or antenna fastens to the appropriate trim, and the trim attaches to the back-box with torsion springs. The AP is recessed into the ceiling much like a recessed light fixture. AP/antenna trim is easily swapped when AP/antenna brand or model changes. (Model 1043-FL recesses AP entirely behind a low-profile ABS plastic cover). See configuration guide in specs for AP-specific trims.
