Marshall-Tufflex puts pedal to the metal with new metal trunking and strut solutions

Cable management manufacturer, Marshall-Tufflex, has added a new collection of metal strut and trunking to its extensive portfolio.

The new products seek to provide contractors with even more choice when it comes to the organisation, protection and support of cabling across a wide variety of applications.

The latest additions to the range underpin Marshall-Tufflex’s efforts to build upon its core PVC-U range to further incorporate a wide choice of cable management systems manufactured with different materials that suit a wide range of installation needs. As such, the company now offers everything from metal trunking and strut to GRP ladder and trays, as well as underfloor to desk and fast fit wire basket systems.

Marshall-Tufflex’s new IP4X rated metal trunking is ideal for heavy duty installations or applications where there is high risk of combustion, such as engine rooms or oil and gas works.

Manufactured from hot dipped, zinc coated low carbon steel strip to meet BS EN 10346, this new collection is stocked and available in 27 different size variants. Notably, it also includes two and three compartment variants as part of the standard range.

The new metal trunking is supplied with Marshall-Tufflex’s unique hexagonal turnbuckle lid fixings, designed to make installation quick and easy. Six turnbuckles are supplied for each three-metre length.

Furthermore, the metal trunking comes with a wide range of accessories, including gusset bends, end caps, reducers and crossovers, allowing contractors to adapt to a variety of cable types and set ups.

Also included in the new metal trunking system collection is a metal lighting trunking range with an open design and optional clip-on lid available on request. This trunking has a set width and height of 50mm x 50mm and is available in 3m and 4.5m lengths.

For a complete solution, Marshall-Tufflex has also added plain and slotted metal strut to its line-up. Manufactured from Grade SD2809B steel and engineered to meet BS 6946 and BS 5950 standards, the strut provides a flexible solution to mount, support and connect lightweight cable loads such as metal tray or wire basket and create a versatile framework for industrial environments.

For easy configuration and assembly, Marshall-Tufflex has included a number of size and length variations to this range and offers the choice of pre-galvanised or hot dip finishes, light gauge or heavy gauge and back-to-back welded versions.

The new metal trunking and metal strut ranges are included in the company’s new Metal Cable Management product guide, which also features its existing metal cable tray and wire basket solutions.

Marshall-Tufflex’s Group Product Manager, Martin Russell, says, “At Marshall-Tufflex, we continue to evolve our portfolio of solutions to meet the needs of electrical installers, and we are delighted to offer even more choice with our new range of stocked metal strut and trunking. The new products join our wider range of PVC-U and metal and GRP solutions, to offer contractors a quality and versatile range of products designed to meet all their cable management needs.”
