A range of steel perimeter trunking from Mita UK has been chosen for the secure containment and protection of mains The entrance of the former wool mill power cabling – together with voice and data wiring networks – in Bradford's Design Exchange.
Electrical contractors were from the Building Maintenance Services department of Bradford Council. The Exchange is housed in a former Victorian wool mill, converted from the three original historic buildings at a cost of £2.7 million. The project was funded jointly by the local authority and the European Regional Development Fund.
Mita 165x52mm steel perimeter trunking has been installed in both dado and skirting profiles to suit different requirements in offices, conference facilities and other areas.
The trunking accepts 'snap-fit' mounting boxes allowing rapid and easy installation of standard power outlets, telephone and data-points, without the need for metal accessory plates.
David Dix of Bradford Council says: “Mita SPT trunking allowed the installation to be tailored to meet the requirements of different areas in the building, based on a single standardised cable management solution”.
