Integrated buildings, also known as smart buildings, provide a connected and collaborative experience to all who use your facility. Our industry is rapidly changing to prepare for the next normal, and familiar technologies are adapting to innovative purposes, implementing and enabling procedures to establish business continuity. More diverse technologies, including AV, security and wireless, continue to converge to the IP space, supporting many of these new functions.
Of course, all of these new technologies require support for new equipment and cables. Due to their flexibility and reusability, VELCRO® Brand products serve as ideal tools to support Integrated Building systems. The multitude of cable lines required to connect every system and create your integrated solution need support to stay organized and secure. VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is a flexible cable bundling option that protects cables from over-cinching, as opposed to plastic ties. Since they can be unfastened and refastened easily, they simplify the process of moves, adds and changes. They even include a fire retardant option for working in plenum space and help installations align with many industry standards, such as BICSI and ANSI/TIA.
When you're creating your Integrated Building, or upgrading existing systems to support your ideal converged system, you'll likely need to mount new devices in various places throughout your facility, such as digital signage, security cameras, remotes and more. You can use VELCRO® Brand adhesive-backed fasteners to securely fasten these devices, wherever they need to be placed. Fastening equipment with this method enables it to be safely installed while remaining easy to remove and replace whenever necessary with little effort and no damage caused to the materials.
These are just some of the ways you can use VELCRO® Brand products to create your Integrated Building or enhance your existing systems. Ready to learn more? Contact your local Accu-Tech representative or check out the VELCRO® Brand products page on our website.
