Twin165 ticks performance & looks boxes for medical specialist
The introduction of Marshall-Tufflex’s new Twin165 double compartment cable management system proved timely for building services firm, Jonathan Richard Associates, which required a Category 6 compliant trunking for large volumes of data and power services in a highly specialised fit-out of a six storey building in Birmingham city centre.Number eight, Calthorpe Road, is the new home of immunodiagnostic products manufacturer The Binding Site Group, which rehoused its 380 UK staff into the prestigious, eco-friendly BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated building.
‘It was the complexity of the client’s system and use of exceptionally specialised equipment that necessitated high quantities of data and socket outlets,’ explained Richard Twist, Jonathan Richard Associates’ mechanical design engineer for the project. ‘In order to implement the client’s requirements we needed a Category 6 data cabling system with a flexible bend radius to carry large levels of complex power and data services to more than 300 workbenches of 1.6m or 2m in length. Marshall-Tufflex’s product was reviewed and found to be suitable. Its future proofing capability was also essential to enable a large degree of flexibility for reconfiguration at later dates.’
Twin165 was supplied by Edmundson Electrical, Sutton Coldfield, with contrasting Part M accessory boxes to comply with DDA regulations. It was installed by Spectrum Electrical.
