Concertto Cable Management
The Concertto is a simple, economical and elegant solution to camouflage and manage the unsightly gaggle of wires and cables necessary for today’s connected workspaces. Ideal for collaborative environments, such as conference, board, huddle and class rooms, the Concertto cable management collection provides an attractive and easy-to-install housing and management system for cables and power in furniture that lacks a design element capable of serving as a conduit from table boxes to the floor, such as a pedestal. Concertto organizes cables from any manufacturer’s table boxes, offering an easy solution to add or remove cables as designs change. The complete system comprises of three modules: 1) An Under Table Channel for dressing cables horizontally along the table underside; 2) A simple-to-install, easily integrated Cable Pathway for transporting multiple low-voltage AV/Data and AC cables from the table’s underside to the floor; and 3) An Under Table mounting bracket that can easily be installed under most conference and huddle tables to provide storage and security for AV, digital, or data equipment. At NeoCon, the Concertto System will be highlighted with an elegant new grey color option for an aesthetically appealing appearance.
