The cables are led safely to the underside of the housing by means of a cable drag chain.
The control equipment can be fully inset into a flat surface. The unit will not form an obstacle whether it is in or out of use.
The housing has a single compartment and features a stainless steel cover (in chequer plate or ready for the application of surfacing materials).
The housing makes use of the bell trap system. The box can be fully inset into a flat surface.
To open the control equipment unit first unlock the cover with a square socket. A lock with a crank handle is located behind the cover.
Once unlocked the hinged cover can be opened with the assistance of the gas springs.

The air chamber housing the mounting plate and the equipment is fitted to the cover.
With the cover in the vertical position after opening the equipment can be accessed safely and easily.
An optional step plate can be fitted in the housing to facilitate user convenience.
