 TeleAdapt Extends its Range of Internet Access Points – the Pull-Through Access Point Joins the DeskHub® Line
December 2003 - TeleAdapt’s Pull-Through Access PointTM provides a straightforward solution to cable management issues for the Hospitality industry.

The TeleAdapt Group ( is a leading provider of consumer electronics and accessories, power solutions and connectivity products worldwide. As a result of its close relationships with major hotels, TeleAdapt has developed the Pull-Through Access PointTM, the youngest product in its DeskHubâ line of Internet access points. Aimed at the Hospitality industry it provides a straightforward, low-cost and visually attractive solution to cable management issues. 

An internal weight keeps the access point in position, both guiding and supporting the CAT 5 Internet cable while it is being pulled through. This access point prevents the cable from falling to the floor and ensures a strong visual identification of in-room high-speed availability.

The Pull-Through Access PointTM is delivered in 2 separate parts that snap together, optimising ease of use and speed of installation. As both parts can only be separated using tools the risk of theft is limited.

The Pull-Through Access PointTM can be custom branded and is available in a wide range of Pantone colours.

Gordon Brown, CEO TeleAdapt comments: "With the addition of the Pull-Through Access PointTM we are now able to provide the hospitality industry with a complete range of recognisable High Speed Internet Access Points, ranging from the low cost Pull-Through Access PointTM to the more advanced WallHub. These promote a high uptake of internet usage in-room, maximising return on investment, and raising customer satisfaction"
