Leighton hospital takes ‘EZ’ path to minimise disruption

Disruption from refurbishment and service upgrades will be minimised at Leighton Hospital in Crewe from now on thanks to the use of an innovative combined cable management and fire stopping system from Cablofil.

Leighton Hospital

The company’s EZ-Path system combines both cable containment and an effective fire barrier for any data communications cabling or low voltage wiring networks. The self-sealing system made up of square section galvanised steel trunking is pre-lined with inert fire stopping materials that expand dramatically in the event of a fire, providing a high integrity barrier against flames, smoke and fumes.

EZ-Path has been installed during a mainly cosmetic upgrade of the main corridors leading to Ward 2 at Leighton Hospital by Checkmate Fire Solutions. While this upgrade did not involve any changes to the electrical services, any future cabling changes would ordinarily require replacement of the fire stopping protection, causing additional dust, disruption and infection control risks. To avoid this, the hospital opted to install Cablofil EZ-Path over the top of the existing cable management installation, enabling them to leave the original services in situ whilst providing capacity for more cables to be installed in the future without the need for any additional fire stopping.
