1044 Overview

The Model 1044 In-Plane Series is an economical, aesthetic, and easy-to-install suspended ceiling mounting kit for APs and antennas from most vendors. A cutout is made in the ceiling tile, the tile bridge and back box is placed above the ceiling panel, and the AP or antenna is attached to the white trim. AP/antenna/trim assembly is then drawn into the back box with a torsion spring, much like a recessed lighting fixture, with only the front face exposed for optimal wireless coverage. The AP trim is easily swapped for new trim when AP brand or model changes.
