Unitrunk Helps Score Fast Installation Goals at Sunderland Hilton

Hilton Hotel - Cable Management - Cable Tray - Cable Basket

Unitrunk - Hilton Hotel Sunderland

More than a kilometre of cable management from Unitrunk has been used to complete the electrical installation at the new Hilton Hotel in Sunderland.

Electrical contractor, Opus Building Services, has used Unitrunk’s Uniklip cable tray, EasyConnect cable basket, cable ladder and cable trunking for the electrical installation at the 140-bed hotel, which is located next to Sunderland A.F.C.’s Stadium of Light.

The fast track installation involved connecting the cable management to a channel support system throughout the building and Unitrunk’s Rapid Installation Systems (RIS) cable management products were selected for their speed of installation benefits.

Uniklip cable tray was used for the power cable networks throughout the hotel, which includes a feature bar, grill restaurant, meeting spaces and private dining areas. EasyConnect basket was installed throughout for the data cabling networks and this was specified with Unitrunk’s UFC 41M basket to channel fast clip, to enhance the speed of installation even further.

Unitrunk’s cable ladder and cable trunking were used in the corridor areas for mains power distribution and safety systems.

Comments Gavin Richardson from Opus Building Services: "As with any hotel electrical installation, we had to deliver a complex programme within a business critical time frame to enable the hotel to open on schedule.

"Using Unitrunk’s RIS systems and channel to basket fast clip helped us reduce the amount of man hours needed by around 50 per cent, driving down the cost of the installation and ensuring that we completed on time."
