Double the Capacity, Half the Stress: Orbit’s True 5” Square Boxes

Double the Capacity, Half the Stress: Orbit’s True 5” Square Boxes

With modern-day data and cable requirements only increasing, installers today can find it difficult to wire in the small space offered by the market’s typical 4” and 4-11/16” square boxes. Luckily, Orbit Industries is here to help combat these issues and more! Introducing a new series of Orbit True 5” Square Boxes and Accessories. With more than double the capacity of a standard 4” square box, these new boxes provide the space needed to handle modern-day hospital, commercial, government and university data needs.

This new series consists of three different boxes and multiple accessories. The T5B-50/200 features twelve side KOs, making it perfect for junction box and home run applications. The T5B-200 features 1/2” up to 1-1/4” KOs and is available in blue as the B-T5B, both which make it ideal for data applications. Each box provides 75 cubic inches of space, 3-1/4” of depth and fits up to a 2” fitting.

Accessories include a blank cover offered in blue or unpainted colors, a reducer for 4” ring compatibility, as well as partitions for multi-system installations.

This 75 cubic inches of space provides a quicker and easier wire routing experience, even allowing for more circuits to be pulled through, reducing conduit and install costs. Additionally, Orbit’s boxes can store the BICSI-recommended slack cable loop, allowing for access and cable termination by a single technician.

More so than reduced labor costs, this additional space allows installers to easily meet the minimum bend radius required in data wiring. This reduces the chance of short circuits and ground faults due to cable stress brought on by cramped spaces. Installers will then spend far less time troubleshooting issues that arise. Currently, Orbit’s True 5” Square Boxes support all copper CAT and fiber optic cables available and feature enough room to house future cable size increases.

Orbit’s new series of True 5” Square Boxes was designed from the ground up with both the contractor and distributor in mind. That why each box also perfectly fit every bracket featured in our Flat Bracket Family and Fixed Box Mounting Bracket series. This includes several kick bracket models, meaning Orbit currently offers the industry’s ONLY kick brackets which fit 5” square boxes!

Furthermore, each bracket allows for said 5” square boxes to be mounted using 4” rings, meaning both installers and distributors need not worry about the material costs associated with stocking a whole new line of rings!

When a job calls for boxes that can handle a lot, do not hesitate to use Orbit’s True 5” Square Boxes for increased labor savings and reduced costs. Every model featured in the new line is UL-listed, in stock and ready to ship.
