Change in the Nexpand Roof Design

All Nexpand cabinets are moving from our current three-piece roof solution to a single-piece roof version from February 1st 2023; this applies to new configurations and already existing ones.

This change has been made in collaboration with our customers to improve your experience with the product, directly impacting the following aspects:

  • Fewer fixation points are needed for the cable dividers used for cable management on top of the cabinet, reducing the number of screws from seven to three per cabinet and significantly decreasing installation time.

  • Easier replacement if a part is damaged, reducing three pieces of the roof to handle to just one.

While most accessories are compatible with both roofs, we have redesigned some to fit the new roof requirements. Continue reading to understand what next steps you should take.

All accessories mounted at the roof sides remain the same and are compatible with both the 3-piece roof and the new single-piece version.

Cable dividers on top of the roof and accessories for the roof’s central cut-out have changed, and new SKUs have been created.

All previous spare parts for roof pieces and related accessories remain available for your existing cabinet base.
