Why did you opt for Syncbox?
We faced a challenging virety of TV’s, we had to hide tv cables with them all. Each model needed a special c type of bracket. Some TV’s needed swing arm, cantilever, some had to be xed and one needed to be tilted.
The client was a very prestigious Interior Designer. She was quite specific about not seeing any cables behind the TV’s. Thus the main goal Syncbox was up against was to hide tv cables in this job. She wanted to have them as close to the wall as possible. From experience, using a standard 47mm double back box inherently gives us problems. Especially with TV’s that need a xed bracket, as this means we have to space the TV from the wall to give us clearance for the cables.
Using a Syncbox heavily reduced the distance between the back of the TV and the wall, allowing the multitude of cables needed to be connected discreetly.
What were the main issues with your previous installations without Syncbox?
We simply did not want to bulk anymore TV’s out from the wall to allow for the connections behind the screen.
How easy was Syncbox to install in comparison to the previous option?
Very easy, the back box was as easy to cut into a block wall as a normal double back box. Yes, its bigger, but the unit is extremely well manufactured and easy to x. The electrician was happy to run his feed to the box. It saved him the hassle of cutting his own box in. Especially as we had over 10 TV points to install.
What reaction did you receive from your client?
Our client was very happy with Syncbox’s ability to hide tv cables. Further more she was slightly dubious of having too much ‘wall acne’. Which in the past has been a problem when we had the need for 2 back boxes for one TV. Once the cover plate was on the wall, it seemed to disappear. This also made the plasterers happy as there was no need to pin the cables up out of the way at the plastering stage.
Most useful feature of Syncbox?
Without a doubt the ability to change modules within the Syncbox and having the capability to use a HDMI, Cat6/LAN, Optical or Satellite output is effortless. Having the modules recessed meant that we had peace of mind when the client wanted any type of TV or bracket, as we know we had the depth behind the TV for any connection.
