In our hyper-connected and digital world, designers are tasked with seamlessly incorporating technology, as well as power sources, into commercial spaces.

Power grommets are the most efficient way to outfit a range of furnishings with power and USB stations, creating charging options within reach. Doug Mockett & Company's power grommets are easily configurable, with options to include an exact number of outlets as well as voice/data or audio/video connections for a single user or a shared community charging space.
The brand offers a number of different mounting applications for different uses. One of the most versatile options is a pop-up grommet, which features a tower or carriage that flips up by pressing the lid for access, then seamlessly blends back in when not in use.
Designers will take comfort in knowing that Doug Mockett & Company's in-desk recessed grommets fit into a vast range of desktops and are easy to install. With power and data options within reach on the face of the unit, in-desk recessed grommets are practical options for public charging stations and shared work spaces in any environment. Additionally, under desk and edge-mount power units also are available, providing solutions when cutting into desk furnishing simply is not an option.
Even wireless devices need power sources, which means cables remain an unsightly element in most rooms, including contemporary workplaces. Doug Mockett & Company's hardware offers a chic solution to keep cables in check and out of sight. Wire managers help channel cabling behind or under desks, as well as down table legs, or anywhere the cables must travel to access a power source. The brand's wire molds are cut to length and easy to install in any environment.
Doug Mockett & Company's products outfit designers with sought-after power and cable management solutions crafted to meld comfort and connectivity.
