1046 Overview

Economical, locking 2 x 2 ft. suspended ceiling Wi-Tile enclosure mounts and secures Wi-Fi and Small Cell APs flush to the ceiling. This steel enclosure replaces a standard ceiling tile, and has a durable white textured powder coat to aesthetically match most ceiling tiles. The interchangeable door simplifies AP and antenna moves, adds, and changes without lifting ceiling tiles.

Note: The Wi-Tile 1046 series enclosure is designed to accommodate older, and typically smaller, Wi-Fi APs. As wireless standards evolve, APs are getting larger to accommodate more internal antennas. Oberon has designed the Wi-Tile 1047 series with a larger door to accommodate current and future generation larger APs. Oberon recommends the Wi-Tile 1047 for new installations, if future migration to larger APs is likely. For a ceiling enclosure equivalent in weight to the 1046 series, Choose the 1047-XXXX-LW series enclosure with lightweight aluminum backbox.

NOTE: This product may be subject to Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ). Please contact your Oberon representative to find out more about possible MOQs for this product.
