The Université de Saint-Boniface in Winnipeg, MB, has been systemically retrofitting its
classrooms to create a more active
learning environment. In IT classrooms,
both the instructor lectern and
student desks require LAN and
power connectivity, USB outlets
and wire management.
Looking for a clean solution, the
facilities team installed Connectrac®
In-Carpet Wireways under the
student tables and teacher station.
The greatest benefit of using
Connectrac wireways for the university
is their flexibility to be moved or
reconfigured—a major advantage in
today’s rapidly evolving classrooms.
“If a solution is going to save me half

Being on the forefront of innovation within the defense systems industry requires Raytheon to have power and technology connectivity readily available at any location inside its
headquarters. To improve communications and office productivity,
Raytheon engaged JE Snyder Electric to install audio/visual technology
within its conference rooms.
JE Snyder recommended the Connectrac In-Carpet Wireway for its
subtle design, easy installation and aluminum casing. The wireway’s
durable base and top cap provide a sense of security so Raytheon does
not have to worry about damaging power and data cables. The metallic
finish also complements the aesthetic of the conference rooms.
