miscellaneous parts which may be required to form a complete system. The drawings
are generally indicative of the work to be installed. Arrange work accordingly
furnishing necessary parts and equipment as may be required to meet the various
conditions and to provide a complete installation.
COLOR SCHEMES
A.
Color of devices and faceplates in the drawings are primarily based upon previous
Cumberland County Courtroom renovations. In those cases, connectors, faceplates
and devices were primarily matte black. The aesthetic of Courtroom #2 is primarily
WHITE with wood trim. Observe the following:
1. Match color of devices and faceplates with new surface mount raceway system
provided by Owner.
2. If raceway color is brown or black use matte black connectors, faceplates, and
devices.
3. If raceway color is white or ivory, use matte nickel connectors in white or ivory
faceplates with matching white or ivory devices.
4. Use matte nickel connectors in 1/8” anodized ‘natural‘ aluminum faceplates and
devices with white powdercoat boxes. Use matte black connectors, faceplates, and
devices with black powdercoat boxes.
B.
