Wiring Modular Furniture

I need to order cable and mounting hardware for 30 cubicles with 1
voice and 2 data jacks per cubicle.

Is there standard hardware to do this for all types of modular
furniture or does each manufacturer have proprietary hardware for
voice/data jacks and mounting?

The customer does not want the Cat5 terminated on wall jacks and then
fed into the furniture later using whips.  Instead, they want extra
cable fed through a grommet, coiled up on the floor, and terminated
later after the furniture has been selected and installed.  I think
this is nuts, but I can't get it changed.  Do you think their plan is
workable?

Ask the client for the spec sheets for the cubical system.  If he can
give you the make and model you can probably find it one the web, but
print it out and get the customer to sign off that it's the right
diagram.

Usually your equipment vendor makes a faceplate for the specific furniture.
For instance, I use leviton and they make a faceplate for Herman Miller
furniture 3.65 X 2.175 (which happens to be most of my cube work) they also
make other furniture faceplates measuring 3.25 X 1.755 and 3.15 X 1.655. So
even if your connector vendor of choice does not make a plate for the
customers' furniture there is still hope if you are using keystone jacks.

What your customer is asking you to do will eventually lead to the
furniture contractor stepping on your cable bundles, dropping heavy
objects on them and very easily damaging them. Instead, you will have to
have your cables bundled and coiled ABOVE the ceiling until the furniture
is ready for you to come in. It may get tricky to coordinate as customers
normally think that as soon as the furniture is up, they can occupy the
space. It is not true as you will need time to fish the cables in,
terminate and test.

You need to get together with this furniture guy or at least give him a
call and find out exactly when the furniture is being delivered, and how
long is it going to take to put it together. You will also need to find
out who exactly is the manufacturer of the furniture, and, preferably, the
name of the furniture product line to be used. With this info in hands you
can call your distributor (or look in the catalog to that matter) and find
specially designed faceplates that would fit the furniture. It also
greatly helps to know the exact size of the outlet knock-outs on the
furniture so you can pick the right faceplate.

True. But I have found that many times the problem turns out to be the
furniture installers thinking they don't need to install the furniture until
the customer is ready to occupy.

I have had many jobs that have resulted in me having to work under the
movers feet because furniture installers have showed up on a Thursday
afternoon to work an all-nighter because the customer was moving in Friday
morning. :-

Thanks to all of you for the tips.  I'll see if I can get two days
after the furniture is delivered and before the customer moves in so
we can run cable through the furniture, terminate it, and mount the
jacks and plates for 30 cubes x 3 drops each.  I'm not sure two guys
could finish all this in a single day.

How much extra cable should be coiled up in the ceiling to serve four
cubes?  Does 30' sound reasonable?

BTW, it seems that the furniture has not been selected yet.  Nobody
can tell me what mfg or model.  All I have to go on is the architect's
drawings of the cube layouts and the locations of where 12 cables are
supposed to come out of the wall to serve a cluster of four cubes.

Good point, Al!

The electrician on site also needs to know how to come into the furniture.
His job can be easier though if the furniture is pre-wired for power.

In any case, stick with the big brother electrician, but be alert so he
does not steal the work from you! ;-)

Yes.  I met him this morning on a walk-thru with the customer to get a
final count of jacks before I order parts.  Nice guy -- very friendly
and helpful.  And, yes, he's troubled by the cube wiring design too.

He told me that the architect is still trying to figure out the best
way to bring power, voice, and data to the cubes.  The original plan
called for cable to be run from the pillars for the half of the cubes
on the window side, and from floor mounted recepticles for the half of
the cubes away from the windows.  The floor mounted boxes were going
to be located directly underneath the cubicle wall.  (It turns out
that this would violate a high-security area of the downstairs tenant
so the plan has to be revised.)

Now I admit that I don't have any experience wiring cubes but this
sounds crazy to me.  I mean, how am I going to run cable after the
furniture is in place and all bolted together?  I won't even be able
to get to the feeder box because it will be underneath a furniture
panel.

Now it looks like they may decide to bring ALL the cable for the cubes
from the pillars.  Both the electrician and I hope that's what they'll
decide.  How do architects make these decisions anyway?

30' should be enough unless the cube size/layout tells you otherwise or
you have unusually high ceilings.
I'd say two guys are definitely not going to finish it up in one day.
There will always be logistics problems, panels of the furniture missing
or last minute layout changes and so on and so forth. Besides, you may get
some bad luck and have to deal with completely enclosed furniture that may
have to be literally fished through as oppose to other (newer?) models
where you can remove a panel and fly through. Depending on the setbacks
you may encounter even two day/two guys may be pushing it.

The customer agreed to give us two days after the furniture is set up
before moving in.  There are some unsettled issues, including whether
my company or the furniture guys will terminate voice and data cable
in the cubes.  (Either way it won't affect the price of the job.)  In
any case, he agreed to order the proprietary hardware at the time he
orders the furniture.

Is there any reason that wiring guys can't work with the furniture
guys to run and terminate WHILE they are putting the modules together?

O.K.  I'll play confused.  Leviton makes 2 types of furniture modules
that are pretty universal.  You order the color and type and number of
ports, connect the jacks and snap them into the ports.  Your data
cables are pretty much cut to fit the opening.

When you come out of the wall to the panels, you have a handful of
cables tagged and unterminated.  Then you thread them through the
bottom plates to the openigs.  Am I missing something?

Carl, Thanks for the reply.  Perhaps I'm the one that's confused.  If
they install the north wall of a series of cubes city directly on top
of the floor mounted box, how can I pull cable from that box?  After
they bolt a bunch of cubes together I know I can lift that wall or
even move it.

Find the brand of Cube and contact the manufacturer for drawings.
These dat's I'm sure the cube system is "data ready" in some way.
The diagrams should show you how the manufacturer plans the wiring.

WOW! Stop right there! Have you seen a regular furniture delivery (or
assembly to that matter) guy (no offense, pros of the trade ;-)) ? Would
you trust those tiny jacks to him? Seriously, the cabling should be taken
care of by a professional, so if you are the cabling contractor on this
job, make sure the job does not slip away from you for the customer's own
good.

> Is there any reason that wiring guys can't work with the furniture

You should wait till the frames and the most bulky parts are installed.
However, there is no reason why you should not tell the furniture guy to
leave the cable trough covers open. When they will be putting the modules
together, there will be lots of movements and adjustments too close to the
delicate cabling. You don't really want that.

Re: Wiring Modular Furniture
I could not help but read you posting as cabling is what I do for a
living.
In the matter of cabling through modular funiture you need to
coordinate with the furiture contractor.  Once the spline is installed
you ususaly can put in the back bone of your cable.  You will want to
do this before they install the pedistals as it will be near
impossible to get some lines down with those in place.
Good luck

Cameron, I apologize for my ignorance but what is the spline and which
part of the furniture is the pedistal?
