Leading cable management manufacturer Marshall-Tufflex’s Odyssey trunking system’s curved profile and smooth lines have ensured a sleek look at new office development, Kings Ash House in Torbay.

Supplied by Newey & Eyre in Plymouth, Odyssey was installed as part of a £1million makeover of Kings Ash House, comprising of a full internal fit-out to create 30 modern, multi-use offices, completed by the Torbay Development Agency (TDA). Out of operation for a number of years, the repurposed building is now providing a much-needed resource for local businesses; a significant contribution to Torbay’s ongoing regeneration, implemented to encourage investment in the town.

A three-compartment PVC-U cable management system, Odyssey boasts the only all-curved profile on the market, enhancing the look of an installation and ensuring easy cleaning, while delivering all the practical features that make for fast and efficient installation.

"We chose Odyssey for its looks and capacity," said Nick Clemens, Principal Services Engineer for TDA’s Property Services. "It seemed a good fit for the building and its requirements. We’re very pleased with the result. For the right project I would definitely use Odyssey again."

Adrian Rowntree, of Dodd Group Electrical, which installed Odyssey, added: "I am impressed with the product. It’s easy to install and very good quality – something I’d definitely recommend. The client is very happy with the finish too. Odyssey blends seamlessly with the overall look of the building’s interior."

Data compliant Odyssey trunking has a built-in cable tray for fast and easy installation and three-part tee to provide full cable segregation. EMI screening is available with no reduction in cable capacity. Adjustable bends mean Odyssey is suitable for difficult angles and building intolerances, and it complies with Part M of the Building Regulations thanks to a range of coloured accessory boxes. The boxes feature Odyssey’s unique flange design which contrasts with the trunking and standard white plate accessories to meet the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) regulations for visual impairment.

Liam Montgomery, Head of Asset Management and Housing at TDA, concluded: "The refurbishment of Kings Ash House provides quality office accommodation for businesses across the region. The project further supports the TDA’s continued efforts to regenerate Torbay and encourage investment into the area. It adds another vibrant facility to the TDA’s property portfolio."
