Angled faceplates

Series II angled faceplates allow angled positioning of the manufacturer's Clarity 6 and Clarity 5e Series II modules, as well as other 1-unit flat Series II modules. Angled positioning is designed to provide a lower profile workstation solution, minimizing patch cord bend radius stress. The plates' design positions modules so that they occupy less space in a recessed wall box or pathway, thereby providing more space for cable management. Series II faceplates feature recessed label fields, slotted screw holes to adjust alignment, and high-impact thermoplastic construction.
