    AV wallboxes/looms

    We need to buy some AV wallboxes for projector installs, and we don't want to go and have to buy ones that are 5m long as they're too long, and the next size that everyone has is 3m which is too short.

    Does anyone have a reliable supplier who can provide them at 3.5m/4m lengths? We need VGA, USB, Phono and 3.5mm jack, and possibly HDMI.

    Thats a shame... then I would buy these Products in Cable Kits | Sahara Presentation Systems PLC

    We buy ours either from CPC, or from SchoolcareICT Solutions For Education, Support, Wireless, ICT Suites, Audio Visualbut almost anyone who will sell you a projector will be able to get hold of sahara gear.

    We use a lot of these techconnect faceplates.

    The standard kit comes with vga, 3.5mm jack, composite video/audio and USB. But they sell every type of module you can think of. HDMI etc.

    Looms available in 5, 7, 10, 15 and 20m and are easily cut down to the right length.

    They are a lot stronger then look and are very reliable.

    Am I right in thinking that the TechConnect cables can be cut to the length you want, and then re-inserted into their little green clips, with the screwdown bits?

    Yes thats correct and there all colour coded so you shouldn't have a problem. Just take your time, You will need a 2.5mm flat terminal screw driver, snips and wire strippers.

    They look ideal then. Quite pricey, but then so are custom made ones that are the right length!

    We get them at discounted rates due to the quantity we purchase, so they generally work out quite reasonable.

    @localzuk indeed you can and the hdmi you'd just buy a standard cable at the length you need. I get my tech connect stuff from Misco.
