Marshall-Tufflex - Elegance 170

Marshall-Tufflex’s newly launched Elegance 170 aluminium profile scored top marks after proving perfect for a new school in Belfast.

Elegance 170 Aluminium (170x55mm) is hard-wearing, good-looking and lightweight, making it perfect for educational and office projects where a robust yet stylish cable management solution with extra mechanical strength and a higher cable capacity is required.

The profile ticked all the boxes for the new Bunscoil Bheann Mhadagain School in Belfast. Supplied by Core Electrical (NI), working with consultants JCP Consulting and electrical contractors Norlect Engineering, the Elegance 170 system was also praised for being Cat 7 and Part M compliant.

“The contractor and consultant needed a system that could be installed quickly while still delivering the highest standards of quality. The Elegance 170 range was perfect,” said Gerry McKeith, Core Electrical (NI). “We believe this is the first school project in Northern Ireland to use Elegance 170 but it certainly won’t be the last. Since supplying Marshall-Tufflex for Bunscoil Bheann Mhadagain we have been successful in obtaining orders and supplying Elegance 110 and 170 to a number of schools and we’re quoting for more schools and commercial projects.

“Not only is it functional, but being Cat 7 and Part M compliant means Elegance 170 ticks a lot of boxes for public sector projects such as this.”

Elegance 170 Aluminium is hard-wearing, aesthetically pleasing and lightweight, making it perfect for office and educational projects where a robust yet stylish cable management solution with extra mechanical strength and a higher cable capacity is required. The Cat 6, 6a and 7/Part M compliant dado/skirting profile has rounded corners and is available with gussetted external corners/bends to meet Cat 7 compliance. Elegance 170 can be used as a single, double or triple compartment and utilises a single cover. It is finished with a high quality powder-coat for a modern, blemish resistant surface. Pre-punched metal dividers deliver quick installation and segregation. The range is supported by fabricated fittings and is compatible with Marshall-Tufflex’s flush power and data accessories and standard UK wiring power/accessories. Elegance 170 can also be used with Conduit and Mini trunking systems. Standard colour is silver grey (RAL 9006). White (RAL 9016) is available made-to-order.

This new profile builds on the success of Elegance 110 Aluminium (110x55mm) a smaller dado trunking system with a single cover.
