Existing concrete slab has electrical and cat5 outlet. Would like smaller faceplates.
I am remodeling the office in our house and the existing concrete slab has an electrical and cat 5 outlet in it. I am getting ready to install wood floor and was initially thinking about just filling these in, but am now having second thoughts about it. The existing sunken cat 5 drop and electrical outlet are EACH housed in a 5 inch diameter sunken like cylinder that comes out of the concrete with about a 1 inch lip.
I think I would now like to keep these in the floor just in case we have a desk in that area in the future, but are there any smaller rectangular boxes I could use instead of these huge monsters?
There are two like this in the floor right next to each other. http://www.hubbell-wiring.com/Press/PDFS/HSBD001.pdf
It just seems like they take up a lot of unnecessary space.
