In addition to long-term upgrade flexibility, the eXapath system helps keep the construction process on schedule as the final decisions about where the home theater cables, structured wiring and general low voltage home cabling needs are determined.
Essex, CT (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
Homepath Products LLC today announced that its revolutionary eXapath™ conduit system is a viable alternative to running excess wiring in new home construction. Currently, many builders and homeowners install low voltage cabling everywhere they think they may need it -- often without regard to the rate of obsolescence of the cabling installed. Homepath Products maintains that their eXapath conduit systems offer homeowners and home construction professionals broadband expandability while eliminating unneeded wiring.
eXapath conduit systems are designed to integrate seamlessly within the wall framing. The eXapath solution allows for the quick addition of media outlets anywhere along a preinstalled vertical channel, either before or after the drywall is in place.
Using the unique snap-in features of the eXapath conduit, media outlets can be added during construction or after the walls are completed, with minimal disruption to the living space and insignificant material waste. These features permit a contractor to start with only the basic cables that the homeowner plans to use. Additional cabling can later be added if and when there is a need. The eXapath system also permits installing outlets at the precise location the homeowner desires.
Other systems do not permit homeowners to change the location of outlets without opening up wall cavities, adding to the disruptiveness of cable installation, waste stream, and expense.
Creating a living space that is attractive, functional, practical, and environmentally sustainable in a home that holds its value over time is no easy task. Addressing the needs of homeowners to have the latest in consumer electronics poses further challenges. Cabling specifications will undoubtedly change as advances in consumer electronics hit the market. eXapath's in-wall conduit systems simplify cabling decisions now and moves, adds and changes in the future. Installing eXapath conduit systems into new home construction and renovation projects provides an economical path for upgrades of media rooms, home theater cable, whole house audio, Cat5 cable, Cat6 cable, security cable, CATV, FTTH and other applications for tomorrow's broadband homes.
"We've designed eXapath for seamless integration into the home's framework. It's not simply a matter of providing an upgrade path for homeowners. As we researched the market, we recognized the need to provide a solution that not only answered all the design and value-add questions, but one that simplified construction by providing additional schedule flexibility for general contractors, whose overhead 'soft costs' can increase as a result of cabling decisions. With our products, trades conflicts can now be reduced" says Michael Hammond, company Co-Founder. " In addition to long-term upgrade flexibility, the eXapath system helps keep the construction process on schedule as the final decisions about where the home theater cables, structured wiring and general low voltage home cabling needs are determined."
