This is a wall-mounted comms rack for a small house in Devon which is close to completion. The structured cabling terminations are fitted to the Cat5e patch panels which are visible in the centre of the rack. Below this is a data switch with fibre modules which link this house to 3 other properties on this estate so that all of the buildings can benefit from one large network. The fibre patch panel is sitting on top of the rack waiting to be placed inside. The multi-coloured cables are the patching for the 4 feeds from the dish which is sited in a field 30m away (so as not to clutter the roof of the house).
This photo shows a rack that we have partially pre-built with equipment in our office (to make sure that the connections etc are neat and tidy while we have significant space while away from site). Behind the rack, in the back of the cupboards, are visible several Lutron Series 4 back-boxes awaiting the fitting of the lighting dimming panels, dimming relays and the processor.
At the heart of any project is a robust, high-speed data network. In this photograph you will see industry-standard Cat5e cables (in green) labelled and connected to a data switch and below this a fibre switch and fibre patch panel for higher bandwidth data throughput.
From top to bottom: HDMI for high definition video; balanced audio cable for long distance transport of sound signals; 4-core speaker cable for high quality sound reproduction from in-wall or in-ceiling speakers; audio-visual coaxial cable for connecting the LFE output of a subwoofer or for short-distance twin RCA cables.
Showing the correct separation of different cable types and the careful containment of these within a riser in a house in Holland Park.
These are the foundations of a total rebuild project in Hampstead that is currently underway. As the builders are casting the swimming pool and cinema room we have been finishing our schematics and CAD diagrams for the wiring. Current design integration meetings are on-going on video door entry, automatic bath-filling equipment, high definition camera surveillance inside & outside of the house, audio-visuals and heating integration.
Face to Face was founded in 2006 and the Directors have over 30 years of
experience working in the industry. We use only in-house technicians and
have spent years perfecting our CAD and schematics to be absolutely clear
for clients, architects and electricians to work from. We operate almost
exclusively through word-of-mouth and have been growing steadily since
Over the last five years we have worked on projects from £1,000 to over
£2.0m and across the UK from the Lake District to Devon. We have
particular expertise in the retro-fitting of systems to Grade I & II Listed
properties and the renovation of conservation area homes in London and the
