AP001 and AP001B Adapter Plates

The Alpha Communications® AP001 and AP001B adapter plates are designed specifically to cover existing over-sized apartment intercom back boxes and other existing wall openings.

Once the adapter plate is affixed to the wall, you can install your open-voice or handset apartment intercom station or surface mount video-intercom station directly onto the adapter plate.

We will gladly punch up to four (4) mounting holes (at no additional cost), to enable you to easily mount the plate over the existing back box. Simply provide us with a clear sketch showing the mounting holes you need. If you choose, mounting holes can be easily drilled right on the job-site. The model AP001 features a large (center) hole for wire access and six (6) pre-punched holes for mounting common apt. intercom stations and handsets.

Installation is quick, easy, attractive and eliminates the need for plastering and painting over the existing hole.

Model AP001B is the same as the AP001, except there are no mounting holes on the front of the faceplate. This enables you to punch or drill any special holes you may need, or to leave the faceplate totally blank.

Custom-sized adapter plates are also available in aluminum, stainless steel, polished brass, or other painted finishes. Please send a detailed sketch to our sales dept., along with the quantity needed, for a prompt quotation.
