Wieland Electric has recently delivered a fully pluggable modular wiring system to feed power and lighting throughout the new 11 storey Louisa Martindale Building at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.
The new building is the first of the three stage 3Ts Redevelopment programme that is replacing all the facilities on the front half of the hospital with two brand new clinical buildings and a much-needed service yard.
Wieland’s armoured and unarmoured Metalynx2 system was specified by Laing O’Rourke to feed the lighting and power requirements on all eleven floors
All Wieland products were delivered as a ‘plug and play’ system, pre-wired and pre-tested, reducing installation time and allowing for tight deadlines. Metalynx2 represents a new, smarter generation, helping to deliver even greater savings on costs and installation time, with structured wiring now firmly established as the norm for fast-track projects. As a result, it is suitable for power distribution and lighting control (including DALI and KNX), and the ability to customise Metalynx2 components for unique projects provides endless design flexibility.
Furthermore, Metalynx2’s inherent flexibility ensures that any changes to the system can be accommodated swiftly and with minimal downtime. The Dali lighting control also used Wieland’s popular gesis GST connectors to deliver power and control signals to the luminaires.
