Cable management solution

A project to co-locate a community hospital, health clinic and civic centre into a shared new building in Selby, North Yorkshire, is making full use of the benefits of cable management solution, Twin Plus, from Marshall-Tufflex.

The £22m Selby Community Project is a joint venture between the NHS North Yorkshire and York, and Selby District Council to rebuild the town's War Memorial Hospital and health clinic and provide new council offices at the same time.

The company's Twin Plus trunking reportedly proved the perfect choice for a number of reasons, not least because it is available in standard and antimicrobial versions, allowing consulting engineers DSSR to specify standard Twin Plus into the council offices and the antimicrobial Bio Twin Plus into the hospital. Overall, the trunking system is being installed in almost 65% of the project, the hospital side of which has achieved a rating of 'excellent' against BREAAM.

Silver-ion protection is added to Bio's PVC-U formulation during manufacture, meaning that the bug-busting solution is incorporated within the Twin Plus. As a result, it is said to work 24 hours a day for the life of the trunking to neutralise and kill dangerous bacteria, even if the trunking is scratched or knocked.

Trunking products utilising a surface coating antimicrobial are unable to offer this level of protection.

Bio Twin Plus has been tested to the quantitative standard ISO 22196:2007.

Results show the survival rate of tested bacteria to be less than 0.1%. Its formulation is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and compliant with the European Biocidal Products Directive (BPD).

Twin Plus is a large capacity trunking with bend radius up to 50mm (compliant with CAT 6 & Cat 7) and a comprehensive suite of flush accessories and boxes. It can be treated with a conductive spray coating for protection against EMI in PVC-U versions.
