The world's most innovative cabling System
CABLING NETWORK CABINETS REINVENTED
The award winning cabling system
The PATCHBOX® Plus+ is the state of the art cable management system; fast and neat. It replaces conventional cable management and patch cords completely with an all-in-one solution.
The PATCHBOX® Plus+ with its retractable cables, provides the user with the exact cable length needed. No more overly long cables, creating a cabinet full of cable spaghetti. Installation time is dramatically reduced and due to the clean setup maintenance can even be done remotely further reducing costs. Read more about this in our Blog.

The system explained
The PATCHBOX® Plus+ System consists of up to 24 Cassettes, a 1RU metal frame that holds the cassettes and our included cable management - the Patchcatch™ . The Cassettes hold a spring loaded pulley system inside that retracts unneeded cable length storing it until needed - providing you always with the perfect length patch cord.
What we refer to as Perfect Patching!
Our Cassettes include a variety of different patch cords, from Cat. 6 with up to 10Gbit to fibre optic in multi mode and single mode. Our 100% tested Cat. 6 patch cords are available in several colours, so it is very easy for you to differentiate from different services you are running on your network. You can even customise a PATCHBOX® Plus+ to your needs with our configurator and combine different coloured cables in one PATCHBOX® Plus+.

5 year warranty
We will replace it if it breaks.
Only accurate documentation is good documentation. Forget about sticky labels, forget about expensive third party or manufacturer labeling solutions. We provide you with tear off labels that simply slide onto the front of each cassette. Depending on your setup, you just have to write i.e. "A1" on the label and due to the physical switch port assignation to the cassettes (cassette 1 is connected to switch port 1 and so on) you see with an blink of the eye what your connections are.
800mm wide cabinets are used mainly because of the extra space on the right and left side of the 19" mountings. That extra spaced is commonly used to hide and store excess cable. The problem with that is, most active components have their fans on the side and those are blocked from the cable clutter. Overheating can cause a lot of unwanted downtime and extra maintenance.
600mm cabinets instead of 800mm wide
The PATCHBOX® uses flat patch cords, 100% tested according to ISO Class E Standards (Category 6). Our flat patch cords only use 1/4 of the space a conventional patch cord would need. With that and our cable management, the Patchcatch™, those extra 200mm cabinet isn't needed anymore.
You can now fit four 600mm network cabinets in the same space as three 800mm cabinets.
