Do you want the power sockets to be hidden or visible for easy access

There are two main types of plug socket units. The first is hidden and the second is easy access. Hidden units usually have a flap or door to cover the sockets when they are not in use. This is ideal for meeting room tables or boardroom tables where presentation is important.

Easy access sockets are usually on the surface of the desktop or side of a sofa. There is no lid or hatch so access is easy and quick. This type of socket works best for breakout, library or public spaces where the plug sockets will be repeatedly used by several different people.

Easy access plugs like the Pixel would be placed into the front or in the side panel of the reception sofa or chair.
