Latest Innovations

light bulbACA-Apex are continually designing and developing new products for the home networking market, and are quite often the first to bring an innovative idea to the mainstream.
Examples include solderless termination 5.1, 7.1 and 2.1 surround sound plates, brush face plates, brush adapter plates, brush snap in modules, slimline 19" rack solutions, various 19" panels, media conduit kit, flat packed back boxes and much more.

Each new product will be added to this page and kept on it for a period of time as well as being incorporated into the main body of the website, so it is worth refreshing this page every now and again to see what we have been up to.

A lot of our new products come about as a direct result of a customers installation issue which we resolve and then develop the idea further to produce a solution for the residential network.
Which is why we so readily take on bespoke work, if you feel that you have something of this nature please don't hesitate to contact us.

 For pictures, part numbers, descriptions and pricing of our latest innovations see below.
