Ridgeons the timber and builders merchants have continued their expansion across the East Anglia area by opening another new branch in Coldhams Business Park, Cambridge. As part of the electrical fit-out main contractors 7formation used Steve Rudkin Electrical of Stamford, Peterborough, to carry out the installation.
Following a site visit where the choice of whether to use traditional steel cable tray for all the overhead containment or wire basket were considered, the decision was made to use the new FastConnect range from Tamlex, the steel cable management specialists from Telford.
The conditions in the new store and the amount of cables to be contained made FastConnect an ideal option. The patented coupling system and the ready availability of bends, tees and risers enable a fast installation and provide an on-site flexibility over conventional perforated tray. “We found the Tamlex FastConnect very quick and easy to install” said Steve Rudkin, “ and I am already considering using it again on the next job.”
The more hostile the environment and the heavier the payload the more likely perforated tray should be chosen but there is no doubt that for many other installations where time is money the savings that can be made by using the right wire basket are being realised.
