The dual hinged cover opens upward or downward, offering easy access to the cable pathway without needing to remove it.
Patchlink is a made in a solid one-piece construction, easily installed in telecommunications rooms for the management of copper, fibre-optic and coax cables. A modular solution, Patchlink works with any Panduit Mini-Com patch panels, patch cords, vertical cable managers and racks.
