Title: Power and data distribution system for beam-mounted seating

Abstract: A power and data distribution system for use in combination with a beam-mounted seating structure that includes a series of seat assemblies each mounted to a common support beam. The power and data distribution system includes a wireway that is mounted to the support beam and extends along the entire row of seats. The wireway includes a concealed main electrical conduit that extends along the length of the power and data distribution system. The power and data distribution system includes a series of access housings that extend from the wireway, and each access housing includes a pair of electrical outlets and a pair of data outlets. Each of the electrical outlets is coupled to the main electrical conduit contained in the wireway, while each of the data outlets is connected to a data line also passing through the wireway. The power and data distribution system is separate from the seating structure and can be attached and removed from the seating structure independent from the construction of the seating structure.
