Construction and Installation
Parallel has an "I-beam" extrusion that connects at panel-to-panel and panel-to-post connections.
Metal components are finished with a baked-on powder coat epoxy. Virtually all trim is painted metal.
Standard Fabric panels are 2" thick with honeycomb core covered by a sheet of fiberglass on each side and wrapped in fabric.
Panel frame is extruded aluminum and tube steel with top cap and all parts needed to complete the installation.
Parallel has a universal post that can be utilized as a 2-Way, 3-Way or 4-Way connection without taking panels down. Every connection post adds 2" to the panel run.
Power & Communication System
Parallel offers a state of the art electrical system to manage diverse electrical requirements and planning flexibility. 8-Wire/ 4-Circuit electrical system can provide 3 Utility + 1 Isolated, or 2 Utility + 2 Isolated configurations.
Power and data can be accessed at desk-height through the use of worksurface mounted electrical and data receptacles.
Raceways accommodate up to 48 each Cat. 5E or Cat. 6 cables with power components in place.
All panels 30" or wider will accommodate up to four base-line duplex outlets per panel (2 duplexes per side).
24" W base panels will accommodate up to two base-line duplex outlets (1 duplex per side).
24" and wider base panels have dedicated data port knockouts. All duplex knockouts can be used for data if not used for power.
Worksurfaces & Supports
Worksurfaces come standard with wire management scallops and are interchangeable with all other Maxon Furniture panel systems.
Maxon offers more than 250 different shapes and sizes.
Worksurfaces are available in T-mold, Edgeband, and Wood Look Edgeband treatments.
All Worksurface tops are finished with a high-pressure, scratch-resistant Wilsonart laminate.
Worksurfaces use 1 1/8" particleboard with a .026" high-pressure backer to seal each surface and prevent warping.
All Worksurfaces can be hung on panels in 1" vertical increments. Wall mount supports are available.
Worksurface support options include cantilever brackets, end panel legs, C-Legs, floor pedestals, and lateral files.
Panel-Mounted Overhead Storage
Overhead storage is available in all standard panel widths.
All overhead cabinets have either 14 gauge steel off-modular hanging brackets with built-in anti-dislodgement clips or a 16 gauge steel wall mounting track. Overheard shelves have 16 gauge formed steel end panels with built-in anti-dislodgement clips.
All overhead cabinets and straight shelves are fully welded assemblies. End panels are 18 gauge formed steel, while lids, shelves, and doors are formed from 20 gauge steel. Corner shelves use 1-1/8" particleboard with a high-pressure laminate top and are fully edgebanded. Shelves have built-in back stops.
Hinged Cabinet doors can either be a 20 gauge steel flat painted door, or a 20 gauge curved steel painted door. All hinged door cabinets come standard with a core removable lock and the doors flip up over the cabinet top with ball-bearing slides. Easy assist mechanisms are optional with the curved door cabinets. Frosted acrylic sliding door cabinets are available and provide an aesthetic and functional alternative to overhead cabinets.
Under shelf task lighting is available.
