New clip design secures MT's Steel Trunking as flexible friend of installers

Re-designed steel perimeter trunking solutions System 130 and System 170, from market-leader Marshall-Tufflex, now offer specifiers and installers greater in-use flexibility thanks to a new clip system allowing the trunking to be divided into multiple compartments on site.

On both systems the internal ‘C’ rail has been replaced with a multipurpose clip that slots quickly and easily into position. The clips can be used to hold dividing fillets, transforming the trunking from a single channel to two or three compartments. The clips also securely position power and data cables ensuring a 50mm distance between each and act as an additional lid support.

System 130 (130mm x 63mm) and System 170 (170mm x 63mm) are manufactured from pre-galvanised steel with a hard-wearing powder coat finish to RAL 9010. All earth bondings are ‘friction fit’ to eliminate the need for screw fixings. Both systems offer increased capacity for power and data, base units with two standard mounting holes every 500mm, multiple earthing and are simple to cut given the empty base with no rail. A wide range of fittings and accessories are available.

“Our compact, easy to install, steel trunking systems incorporate stylish clean lines with a functionality that provides greater mechanical strength combined with first class fire performance and excellent screening capability,” said Jeremy Dodge, Head of Marketing & Technical Services.

Full details of the updated range are contained in a new Marshall-Tufflex product brochure, Steel Trunking Systems, which details the systems’ basic components, fittings, bonding assemblies and accessories/boxes plus product order numbers and diagrams explaining the trunking, its features/benefits and technical data.

The brochure is available to download from the Marshall-Tufflex website (www.marshall-tufflex.com) or by calling its Customer Services Team on 01424 856600.
