PortaFab modular offices and inplant buildings are designed to accommodate standard electrical components and fluorescent light fixtures. OmniFlex, Series 300, and all PortaMax systems feature studs with wiring raceways that make installing electrical, voice, and data systems easy. For even greater convenience, offices can be outfitted with a pre-engineered "Snap Together" modular wiring system.

Standard Electrical Components

Standard electrical and lighting components include 2' x 4' fluorescent lights with the following:

Recessed Troffers
Outlets and Switches
Circuit Breaker Boxes
Optional Components

“Snap-in” Cover Plate

Removable “snap-in” cover plate provides a clean professional finish while allowing for easy inspection of the raceway.




Snap Together Modular Wiring System

PortaFab has developed a modular wiring package that outfits your in-plant office with everything it needs for simple installation. All outlet boxes, switches, wiring, and conduit fit neatly into the studs of the framing system with removable cover plates for wiring access while recessed fluorescent light fixtures integrate seamlessly with the ceiling grid system. Optional pre-wired circuit breaker boxes for your particular design can be included so that an electrician is only needed to hook up the power source to the breaker box.

Lower Total Cost

Unlike traditional wiring methods which are labor intensive and require extensive involvement from electricians, modular wiring systems snap together in a fraction of the time so all the electrician has to do is bring the power to the circuit breaker box and connect the circuits to the breakers.
