New cable range features IP55 rated distribution trunking
Following increased demand for a trunking system that is suitable for more challenging environments, Legrand has introduced an IP55 rated distribution trunking to its renowned Salamandre range of cable management solutions.
Featuring a Clear Powder Coating (CPC), the system offers extended life expectancy over traditional pre-galvanised trunking by presenting greater protection and resistance to corrosion.
Salamandre IP55 rated distribution trunking is suitable for external applications, particularly where cabling could potentially be exposed to splashing liquids and dust ingress.
For product longevity, there are outward return flanges for greater strength and neoprene gasketed trunking lids. The trunking has achieved 672 hours of performance in a salt spray test in Legrand laboratories and is also independently tested for resistance to fire to BS EN 50885-1:2005.
The product features pre-punched lids, shake-proof screws and pre-assembled captive bushes for faster fixing of lids and couplers. All the couplers are supplied complete with all required fixings and earth links.
Mark Williams, Lead Marketing Manager for Cable Management at Legrand UK and Ireland, commented: “We are being asked more and more for a trunking system which offers greater protection in terms of IP rating than traditional IP30 or IP4X systems.
"Salamandre IP55 trunking has been designed to meet this requirement. Furthermore, the most important part of the product’s development has been to ensure that it can be fit for longer and is faster by design to complement the rest of our cable management solutions.
“We are dedicated to offering a wide range of cable management products engineered to meet the varying demands of the markets we are working in. We believe the new IP55 Salamandre product is the perfect solution to an up to now unanswered question.”
