From lighting all the way to communications equipment, work processes in the administrative field are closely bound up with electrical engineering. OBO systems provide the supply equipment which that entails. They carry electricity and data through the floors, ceilings and walls, from the foyer to the workplace. Complex interior architecture benefits especially well from the flexibility of our systems, since they can be adapted perfectly to every type of task and room. At the same time, surge protection, lightning protection and fire protection systems provide maximum safety in every scenario.
To the point
Whether it’s for a laptop or an info terminal, in some areas of a building it is sufficient to have just one supply outlet. The OBO GESRM2 family supplies electricity and data exactly where it is needed, either as an individual outlet or as part of a complex underfloor system.
Round the houses
OBO complete units made from solid metal are equipped with a Schuko socket, to which data connections can be added, if required. Their round covers come in a choice of platings – chrome, nickel, brass and copper – and can be integrated with precision into floor coverings of different colours. Closed, they can be wet-cleaned.
Made from high-grade materials, GE2 service outlets can be integrated wherever small, discreet supply solutions are required. These square inserts are available with a cable outlet, a combination of cable outlet and floor covering recess, or a tube body – and all of that in pure stainless steel. There could not be a more stylish way to bring electricity and data into an upmarket building.
The UDHome service outlet makes installed power and data connections almost invisible. Once installed, all you can see is a metal edge and cable outlet made from solid stainless steel or brass. Inside the two sizes of unit (UDHome4 and UDHome9) there is enough space for complex supply solutions.
Ideal for dry floor cleaning
No cable spaghetti and nothing to trip over: OBO service outlets made from plastic are suitable for flooring that is dry-cleaned, such as carpets, laminated floors and floorboards. These flexible products can be combined with flushfloor and screed-covered underfloor systems, and can be used in raised and cavity floors.
Diverse colours and shapes
OBO service outlets are available round or square, each in three sizes. With colours ranging from beige to brown to charcoal, they suit every type of floor covering. The plastic units are designed for various different kinds of power and data connections. There is also sufficient space for integrating surge protection.
Height-adjustable cassettes are often used in natural stone flooring and tiled floors, where strength and durability are essential. OBO cassettes feature high-quality materials and solid thicknesses. Stainless steel and brass don’t just look good – they also make for lasting quality even when hidden away.
Lightweights and heavy loads
This family of cassettes includes round and square ones in different sizes. They are designed for heavy loads and are the ideal solution for areas with lots of traffic. There are versions with cable outlets as well as versions with tube bodies in the range. All of these cassettes include space for power and data connections, and for integrated surge protection.
Our OKB trunking system with brush bar allows you to supply rooms almost invisibly with electricity and data, making it predestined for use in upmarket private rooms, offices and exhibition areas. Once installed, all that is visible is a brush bar which looks similar to a shadow gap. One of the strengths of this system is its flexibility, from the planning phase all the way to later use. The OKB system can be perfectly adapted to all kinds of rooms. Its inlet channel makes it easy to connect up, and the punch-out openings to the pipe inlets allow the system to be combined anywhere with our complete solutions, such as when you want to supply a desk standing on its own in the middle of a room.
Put it where you want it
Whether slim, or larger to accommodate outlets on both sides, OBO service poles look good in any office. The short versions provide an interesting alternative for uses such as raised and cavity floors. They can be fitted anywhere near to workstations, providing quick access to power and data.
With versions in sheet steel and aluminium and a range of different profiles, there is plenty to keep designers busy. The poles can be equipped with standard devices or Modul 45 installed devices, depending on type.
Flexible and economical

Perfect in form and function
Plugs, adaptors, data cables and network cables – none of them can be seen from the outside. GAD designer device installation trunking is OBO’s top-of-the-range device installation product. All it reveals is a classy, solid aluminium fascia. Anything that might disturb its minimalist appearance disappears behind the pivoting trunking covering, which is available in three shapes.
LED light strip
An optional LED light strip can be fitted to the underside of the trunking system. It provides subtle lighting of the walls and the area below the trunking.
OBO kept this trunking system particularly compact by incorporating 45 mm system openings for the direct installation of Modul 45 switching and plugging devices. Cables and wiring are bundled together and fed out of the trunking system wherever required through an adaptor in the upper section.
GAD designer trunking combines perfect design and outstanding finishes with a high degree of functionality when fitting and using. This makes it the ideal system for hotel receptions, checkout areas in boutique store, and in upmarket offices.
OBO sheet steel device installation trunking shows it strength on any wall. It is suitable for Modul 45 installed devices and standard devices. There are many colour choices available: aside from white, cream and pale grey, numerous RAL colours are available on request.

Protecting old structures
The technical renovation of old buildings demands particular sensitivity, especially if the buildings are listed. OBO solutions meet modern usage criteria. With today’s technology, you can help to protect the structure and dignified appearance of historical buildings.
OBO’s specialists have gathered experience in numerous old building renovation projects. They can assist architects with comprehensive advice coupled with the right technical systems for renovation and upgrading.
OBO Cable Management encompasses a large number of different systems all aimed at guiding electricity and data from the entrance into the building all the way to the places where they are used - without interruption. A range of finishes and materials go to make up a complete portfolio for practically every kind of use. Furthermore, OBO is always producing innovative new solutions as new technical needs arise.
Protecting and preserving
There are three fire protection aims that have to be fulfilled in buildings where many people congregate daily: limiting the spread of fire, securing escape and rescue routes, and maintaining electrical function. OBO systems help make sure that these aims are met in buildings throughout the world.
OBO fire protection systems allow holes in walls and ceilings to be closed off securely, thus helping to ensure that fire does not spread to neighbouring parts of a building.
Escape route systems
OBO offers a comprehensive range of tested systems that help keep escape and rescue routes usable. They include fire protection ducts, grouped supports, pressure clips, cable trays and much more besides.
The millisecond with lasting consequences
If it strikes a building, lightning can endanger people and property. Furthermore, electrical equipment is often damaged by electrical surges. These surges can be caused by nearby lightning discharges, and by switching activities in medium- and low-voltage networks. The result can be the destruction of electrical equipment and communications installations, and also the loss of data – and this can threaten the very existence of businesses.
Integrated lightning and surge protection from OBO
OBO systems protect people and property reliably. Air termination systems, conductors and earthing systems provide external lightning protection, while equipotential bonding and surge protection equipment protects against the effects of lightning current. Only if all these components are installed is genuine protection afforded. OBO supplies all of these elements - perfectly matched and from a single source.
