Model 1042 provides the simplest way to recess APs into the ceiling for an aesthetic, professional installation. A cutout is made in the ceiling and the back-box is fastened to the ceiling (remodel). The AP fastens to the AP-specific trim, and the trim to the back-box. The AP is recessed into the ceiling much like a recessed light fixture. AP trim can be easily swapped for new trim if the AP brand or model changes in the future. See specs for AP-specific model names.
