Cat 6 modules fitting in this enclosure

This question is from 14 in. Telecommunication Center

San Jose, CA

August 29, 2015
Hi, I have cat6 wires running all over the house. My contractor has put this enclosure where all the wires are terminating.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/CE-TECH-14-in-Telecommunication-Center-5515/204294372?MERCH=RV-_-rv_gm_pip_rr-_-204294376-_-204294372-_-N

I am not sure if it is sufficiently big. I have 36 ethernet cables and 2 coaxial cables terminating here. Can this enclosure fit them all? Also, w do you have corresponding cat 6 data modules/patch panels that can fit in here? I see 5e patch panels but not Cat 6 ones. Also, if yes, how many can be fitted in here?
Thanks a lot for the response in advance.

Answer: 
36 and 2 coax is going to be a really tight fit, but you can cram it in there. 3 X 12 port patch panels but you would have to be very organized with your cabling. I recommend vertical down if possible, horizontal takes up to much room unless your wires come in horizontal. 5e patch panels will work just fine. It's pretty unlikely our going to be maxing out to cat 6 standards in a residential site unless Read More

It's pretty unlikely our going to be maxing out to cat 6 standards in a residential site unless you have google fiber to your house or something... Maybe if your doing a lot of 4k movie streaming inside your home but even then 5e is probably fine. If all your equipment is rated for cat 6/ 10g then ok but I'm guessing since your asking it probably isn't. Read Less

What kind of J-box is supposed to be used?

This question is from 14 in. Telecommunication Center
Asked by
Minnesota

May 21, 2016
The instructions say that you can install a j-box to the outside. There are two knock-outs for that. But I have not found a single j-box that fits the pre-drilled holes in the knock-out. Additionally, the knock-out is far wider than any single-gang j-box that I'm aware of. Please point to a J-box that will work. Thanks!

14 in. Telecommunication Center is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from As advertised Product is easy to install and works well to organize low voltage network and phone cabling and equipment which does not need to be accessed regularly. If regular acess is required, would recommend a hinged cover version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for my use I wanted medium box for home phones and network star pattern wiring. If you are going to do full on home automation then I recommend a larger box. The Good: plently of knockouts. I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH GETTING THEM TO RELEASE. The cross pattern for the mounting holes gives options and is difining plus for the box. The Bad: It would be nice if there was swinging door vs a screw on panel. Also in my opinion those that go into a store and buy a this retail are most likely installing this in an already finished home and therefore the mounting tabs should not be already in the out position. The ugly: this is a homedepot brand and thus there is no manufacturer website with extended details. did not come with visual mounting directions/suggetions considering manufacturer directions are online there was no reason not to include them or at least have a web address for them listed on the packing/direction sheet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fix the knock outs. Fix the tabs for mounting so the bend. Find a different manufacturer. I bought this to clean up a tangled mess of cat 6 cable on a new home. The panel knock outs are a royal pain to remove, I damaged the panel getting them out and they left sharp edges. Seems like this is a long standing issue that hasn't been addressed. Little consideration was given for pulling 8 cat 6 cables into the box. No plastic grommets are provided for the knock outs to protect the cable from razor sharp edges.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best available in local area Pro:the extra mounting holes allowing alternative mounting directions is a defining feature. Cons: like many others on the market there is no hinged door which would be a mega plus if it were available. If choosing not to make a hinged cover the screw holes should be reinforced more. Note: despite its initial appearance (looks uncut)the knock outs are easy to remove. I actually popped them free with my fingers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk for one reason The knock outs are nearly impossible to remove. The first one I did on a bench and had to use a cold chisel and hammer to avoid messing up the box. After I got it installed and had some electronics in it, I determined I needed remove another knock out. I mean... one of the whole points is to use the knock outs! I wonder if anyone at Home Depot has ever tried to use it. If they did, I bet they went out and bought a competitor. Been at it for 10 minutes so far. I actually took a break to write this review I am so frustrated. Wanted to warn everyone away from this Home Depot piece of garbage. Will probably pull the electronics to get the knock out removed... but then I will probably just return it as defective.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a bit flawed. I purchased this in hopes of cleaning up some data wiring that was done by an electrician. Turns out the box is 14" by 14.5" which wouldn't be a problem in the electrical box knockout was on the 14.5 side. So for whatever reason you can only use the electrical box knockout if you notch out your 2x4 .5" which is overly difficult. If it was a 14" square this wouldn't be a problem, and since this was a remodel there was nothing I could do but hack away at one stud till it was 14.5". Seem strange to but the electrical box knock on that side. I think if I had to do it again I might just make a box that fits out of .5" ply or something so you know it fits and you can put your knockouts in where ever you see fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Knock outs were extremely difficult to use - impossible to remove without bending the chassis. The screw pattern was off for the electrical outlet in the bottom. I bought the CE Tech outlet kit from Home Depot, and the holes didn't quite line up, making installation extremely difficult and time consuming. Lastly, the screws included to secure the cover on the box will only work if the box is exactly flush with the wall; They are too short if your drywall is even slightly uneven. I've used Leviton in the past, and even though it is significantly more expensive, it's worth it.
Date published: 2014-07-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Punch outs extremely hard to knock out The build of the box itself was nice has a heavy sturdy feel. The punch outs were impossible to knock out. I tore up the box trying to knock out the punch outs. It left a very rough edge. Would not recommend this product. I returned the product going to use the legrand version which I used in the past.
