No mythology behind Odyssey’s success!…


No mythology behind Odyssey's success Sleek and stylish are not words typically used to describe PVC-U cable management systems, but Marshall-Tufflex’s Odyssey truly merits the description, according to Kevin Keenan, director of chartered building services design consultants The Keenan Consultancy.

Mr Keenan’s comments followed the installation of the curved system in the company’s newly constructed Edinburgh city centre offices. So successful has Odyssey proved, the consultancy has since suggested it for projects it is working on – as consulting engineers, the firm is routinely called upon to make recommendations for M&E equipment and since the installation, Odyssey has been chosen on several occasions.

The electrical contractor on the office development was J Halliday Electrical Contractors, Edinburgh.

The pioneering design of Odyssey trunking is the result of extensive market research among specifiers to determine their ultimate wish list for design elements of a cable management system.

It is the first three-compartment PVC-U system with a completely curved outer profile. It also has adjustable internal/external bends and a built-in cable tray. Odyssey not only looks good, but is practical too.

One installer said of the system: ‘Odyssey is far quicker to install than traditional trunking systems. It is easy to clean and the new clip-on lid action allows the trunking to follow any surface irregularities, creating the superbly smooth lines that are its hallmark.’

The extensive range of moulded fittings has bend radius cable control for Cat 6 compliance, and is easy to install and totally secure. This minimises any need for external couplers, which adds to the system’s impressive visual appearance. Odyssey is also available with a conductive spray coating that offers extra protection from electromagnetic interference to data and communications cabling.
