Press release date: January 30, 2014
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Legrand, a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, today announced the availability of its new range of Pass & Seymour® Recessed TV Boxes.
The new boxes are designed to provide a snug-to-wall placement for New and Old Work applications in the hospitality, education, commercial and residential environments.

“The new range of Recessed TV Boxes have steel electrical boxes that accept conduit, and all products are designed to fit in a standard 2x4 wall cavity,” said Thomas Roy Sr., product line manager, Legrand Electrical Wiring Systems Division. “The TV2MW has a unique bracket that allows face or side mounting.
