Marshall-Tufflex Trunking & Conduit a Clear Winner for Aeronautical Manufacturer

Maxi Trunking - Floor Boxes - Cable Management - Clear Conduit

Marshall-Tufflex clear trunking & conduit

Marshall-Tufflex clear Maxi trunking and conduit with underfloor Powertrack and floor boxes have been installed in a major data lab development for a leading aeronautical manufacturer.

With an understandable need for high security, Marshall-Tufflex’s Specialised Solutions team worked with the project’s specialist contractor Whitehead Building Services to find a way around a number of installation challenges. The Specialised Solutions team addresses complex and challenging cable management problems encountered by designers, consulting engineers and contractors, with in-house designers providing solutions that combine functionality, safety and contemporary styling.

Marshall-Tufflex Maxi data feeder trunking includes a range of slow angle fittings. For this project, 100x50mm clear profiles with flat 90° internal and external bends were used to provide scope for rapid inspection, ensuring that nothing can be concealed within them. 20mm and 25mm clear conduit with terminal boxes and accessories completed the project, with products being manufactured to order in just three weeks over a holiday period.

Whitehead Building Services’ Project Engineer Jason Eunson commented: “Marshall-Tufflex stood apart from other potential suppliers as the only company that could meet the specific product and compliance requirements for this project. The ability to manufacture materials in such a short time bears testament to its production capabilities.”

63 Amp underfloor Powertrack, complete with integral floor mounting brackets and pre-assembled end caps, couplers and floor mounting brackets was also used. This is compatible with MT32 pre-wired floor boxes and available in Standard or CE (Clean Earth) versions.
