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
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 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?

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!

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 7, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quality control Problem. I previously reviewed this product based on 1 installation I did, but I had purchased 2 so now that both are installed I wanted to re-review it only slightly higher overall rating. So the knockout issues seems to be fixed in my opinion. I didn't have any problems getting the knock outs... out. My real problem with the first install was that the electrical outlet knockout was on what I consider to be the wrong side. Well I just installed the second one this weekend and I'll be darned if the electrical knock out wasn't on the a different side on that one. Good news is that the install this weekend went much smoother. Bad news is it means there is a quality control problem where these are made. I purchased 2 of these exact same units and they were side by side on the shelf yet the were different. I think the form factor of a 14" box is excellent, but it should probably be 14" both ways, and QC needs to make sure they are all coming out with the knockouts on the correct sides. Since the 2nd one went MUCH better on the install I jumped the rating up to Average, however because of the inconsistent quality I still wouldn't recommend this product ( HOWEVER nobody in my area carries anything like this so people are kind of stuck with them) November 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good I think they must have gotten the memo on the knockouts. I had no problem knocking them out. I was able to install this in a closet very easily. I am very happy with my purahcse. July 16, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 11, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by On to the next one.. Like every other review.. THE KNOCK-OUTS are impossible to knockout. I only was able to do one of the big knockouts with hammer; by then you have already dented the box all up. forget about getting the rest of them out. Other than that box is sturdy. May 21, 2015
