It's even worse these days, since even the telcos don't hire real telephone men any more. It's anything goes and God forbid if it involves more than a CAT5 cable.

a tenant remodeled space and is moving within a building my friend manages. This was how the phone system was installed. I realllly hope this is temporary.

Gotta love the professionalism of the full installation from the ceiling entry to securing the rack and the Key system mounted to something pulled from a dumpster.

Apparently wire management is not necessary for silver satin. The term "Trunk Slammer" come's to mind...

It is chip board, and a VERY old panasonic. I would bet that the owner of the company had his neighbor's son move it after hours one saturday.

That is not MDF, it's Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

the guy/company who did this work is shockingly still in business. He did the cabling/phones for a customer 10 plus years ago and they never called him again once I told them I could service everything smile

That's a very troubling photo, from a professional standpoint. I would have definitely sanded the edge of the board. It's the little things, the attention to detail, that make an installation stand out. What ever happened to pride in one's work?

LOL Arthur. OSB doesn't sand so well. Painting looks like crap unless you seal it first. Maybe a different material?

Maybe some finished product would look better. Giving the installer the benefit of the doubt, It could be that the lease has attachment rules. Especially an old TD-1232. It might be a transition system waiting for "hosted" or IP.
