DESCRIPTION

ACE BACKSTAGE CO., INC. compact-sized Stage Pocket, the Mini Stage Pocket, is a standard general use vertical slant panel flush stage pocket. The Mini Stage Pocket is a compact rugged, high utility, high density design. The Mini Stage Pocket is made of heavy duty steel and may be used to conceal audio, communications, control, data, electric AC power, switches, video, and voice connections etc. below the floor surface for easy access and to prevent connector damage. The Mini Stage Pocket has a compact capacity inter-changeable panel system which permits easy custom connector/panel configurations. The lid/bezel is 1/8” steel with a footprint of 4-3/4” x 7”. The hinge is brushed brass or stainless steel and will not rust or discolor.

The Mini Stage Pocket has the panel capacity for either:
• (2) #MP-100 Series CONNECTRIX Panels or
• (2) #MP-200 Series Switchcraft® Panels

The Mini Stage Pocket has the connector capacity for either:
• (4) CONNECTRIX Connectors or
• (4) Neutrik® Connectors or
• (4) Switchcraft® Connectors

The Mini Stage Pocket Lid and Mounting Flange assembly is available in 2 oven-cured powder coat finishes plus brushed solid brass. The Lid and Mounting Flange mounts to the Mini Pocket Body which easily installs in raised floors with or without a back box. Two panel positions in the pocket body permit a wide array of connection possibilities. While the space in the pocket is compact, a careful selection of connectors can satisfy requirements for audio, video, computer or 110VAC connectivity.

The small footprint and compact size sets limits for the combination of connectors that may be used in a single pocket. Using the CONNECTRIX system in various optional 2-panel combinations for large and small connectors a surprising array of connections can be accomplished. A single Mini Pocket may accommodate only one or two larger connectors (mic, speaker, VGA, A.C. etc.). When using smaller connectors four or more connections are possible. When selected large and small connectors are stategically placed in the opposing panels, 3-4 connectivity terminations can easily be accomplished.

ACE's Standard Vertical Slant Panel Stage Pocket Systems offer CONNECTIVITY Solutions with a flexible, reliable, and simplistic design. The flexible design of the Standard Vertical Slant Panel Stage Pocket Lid, Mounting Flange and Pocket Body along with Custom and Prefabricated Aluminum CONNECTRIX (Neutrik®/Switchcraft® combo cutout) Panels, Switchcraft® Panels, and our large selection of CONNECTRIX (Neutrik®/Switchcraft® combo cutout), Switchcraft®, and Custom Connectors allow the Stage Pockets to be installed in many different applications. These applications include educational, institutional, and liturgical settings. Within these applications various audio, communications, control, data, electric AC power, video, and voice terminations are possible, allowing for a complete Stage Pocket System.

ACE's Standard Vertical Slant Panel Stage Pockets are available in a variety of sizes (Mini, Half, Full, and Double Wide) making them flexible in both form and function and able to meet your individual requirements. All Standard Vertical Slant Panel Stage Pockets are UL Listed except for the Mini Pocket. For more details on Ace Backstage Co. Inc.'s Stage Pocket Systems call the Ace Order Desk at 661-295-5760.

CONNECTRIX CONNECTORS USE NEUTRIK® “D” MOUNTING HOLE PATTERNS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY

The CONNECTRIX system connectors may be used in any of the CONNECTRIX panels utilizing the popular mounting pattern of the Neutrik “D” and Switchcraft “E” series mounting patterns. Connectors using the generous rectangular CONNECTRIX cutout will add to a growing array of adapter-mounted standard connectors. The adapter mount is plastic and provides ground isolation between the panel and connector. Click on the links above for our current selection of stock CONNECTRIX system connectors.

CONNECTRIX SYSTEM PANEL DESCRIPTION

Created to support the immediate delivery of complete Stage Pocket Systems, ACE CONNECTRIX Panels provide the flexibility to customize a standard panel that mates perfectly with ACE Stage Pockets - both the pocket and panels (with loaded connectors) can be delivered to the job site as ONE package, ready to terminate.

Created from high strength, tough, aircraft aluminum alloy (6061-T6) and available in two thicknesses (.062" or .125") these panels are machined to remain flat and increased connectivity options. MP-100/200 series CONNECTRIX System Panels mate seamlessly with ACE Mini Pockets.

Labeling MP-100/200 Series Panels is fast and easy with ample space both above and below connectors for identification. ACE can Rotary Engrave ACE MP Series Panels to show bright aluminum against the standard black panel finish without the need to back fill.

And Now, ACE offers Laser Etching - producing custom labeled panels even faster! Electronically controlled, panels are permanently marked with a precision laser beam, producing high quality, crisp, detailed inscriptions or logos.

ConnectQuick CUSTOM PANELS

Approve the provided custom layout and ACE will cut, label, populate and ship...all by tomorrow. Custom panels in 1 day!

Custom panels cut from laser friendly materials, produce strong and stiff panels that show little fatigue over their lifetime, have low moisture sensitivity, and good electrical properties. Eco-friendly, this thermoplastic resin combines the strength of metal and resilience of plastic and eliminates the production time associated with metal finishing.

Finished ConnectQuick panels are sturdy, opaque black, and have a brushed appearance. Backfilled connector identification in a variety of colors!

TRADITIONAL CUSTOM PANELS

Custom panels from metal materials are rotary cut and then prepared for finishing, after you have approved our panel drawing and quote. Design/Integrators can choose to have panels chemically anodized or electrostatically powder coated to protect the metal from abrasion before the labeling process. Add identification characters, instructions, and company logos to custom panels with laser etched or rotary engraved options. Many times these custom A/V panels can ship sooner than the 10 day lead time quoted at receipt of order.
