Lik Hung commissioned us to extend their comprehensive trunking portfolio by the design of a clever new cavity floor service box. To achieve the design of this innovative new product we’ve employed a variety of materials, for example nylon 66 with fiber glass for strength, TPV silicone for flexible wire exits, epoxy-based powder paints for durability and a long-lasting finishing. The floor box gains it’s elegant appearance through the black printed tempered glass décor panel on the floor box surface but since the design is based on a modular structure, the appearance can be changed to adjust to any kind of floor no matter if, marble, concrete, carpet or wood. The design of the box introduces a host of improvements compared to traditional designs such as wave-inspired upstands that act as both wire exit retainers and support structures, a patented novel hinge design that allows the lid to be removed at 90 degrees position, and locked in place in “open mode” once past 90 degrees angle and a more convenient wire exit at 3 sides of the box, that is secured by a 1-piece rubber rim, combining practicality and form.
