Marketair Inc. introduces RoughinBox, a plastic terminal box designed for expediting the rough-in of linesets, condensate hoses and electrical/communication cabling for wall-mounted minisplit and VRF evaporator installation.
         
RoughinBox creates a central point with ports at which linesets, condensate hoses and electrical/communication cabling can terminate. Once the RoughinBox is installed, piped and wired; the surrounding wall area is ready for sheetrock installation, painting and minisplit evaporator connection.
         
Roughing in boxes has been a construction staple in European and South American ductless air conditioning markets. Now re-engineered, the plastic terminal box targets sizing, compatibility requirements and codes of the North American residential and commercial construction markets.        
         
The patent-pending RoughinBox comes in two models; the 14.5 x 10 inch RBX1-CD-NC bottom drain version for high wall installations, and the 14.5 x 7 inch side drain version with a lower profile for restricted spaces above doors and windows. Both models have room to conceal a condensate pump and reservoir, when gravity drainage isn’t possible.
         
Both models are constructed of blow-molded black polyethylene. They have four adapters for fastening into metal or wooden wall studs at 16-inch-centers.
         
Other RoughinBox features include:
One-year warranty
Certified for fire-rated walls when used with fire barrier putty pads
Removable rear panel provides an optional access opening for maintenance, replacements or repairs
Protects lineset and cabling from other trades during construction
Protects drain line inlet from dust and debris blockages during construction
Promotes post-construction installation          

Manufactured by Brazil-based Polar Industries, the RoughinBox is imported by Marketair, which is the product’s export sales and product support representative outside South America. The RoughinBox is available at most HVAC/R wholesale distributors throughout North America.
