Latest product launches


Posted: Thursday 31st March 2011

Market leading cable management firm, Cablofil, has launched its PVC Cable Tray range to the UK market, providing an ideal solution for the damp, corrosive environments typical of water sector installations.

Known as the company that has pioneered the use of steel wire cable tray in the UK, Cablofil was already the UK steel wire tray supplier approved by WIMES (Water Industry Mechanical & Electrical Specification). Now the company has launched a PVC cable tray also approved by WIMES ensuring that specifiers for water and waste water projects have an even wider array of proven, high quality Cablofil cable management to choose from.

Explains UK managing director of Cablofil, Paul Courson: The ease and speed of installation, flexibility and lightweight advantages of Cablofil steel wire tray have made our stainless steel products widely specified in water treatment settings. However, in very damp or corrosive environments PVC offers enhanced durability and longevity so this move has been designed to offer our customers increased choice with the peace of mind of dealing with a specialist that they know and trust.

Easy to cut, assemble or join together, the Cablofil PVC system is lightweight to handle and transport and does not need to be earthed. Suitable for installation both indoors and outdoors due to its UV protection, the range is ideal for water and waste water treatment applications or for any damp, salty environment. The UK launch of the Cablofil PVC range follows its increasing popularity in water sector installations in France and Spain and adds to the range of Cablofil products specifically designed for corrosive environments, including its anti-corrosion, molybdenum stainless steel 316L system, which is already very popular for industrial installations.

Encompassing profiles, fixings and support accessories, the Cablofil PVC range offers everything required for a complete cable management installation. The system is available in both perforated and unperforated variations, in a choice of standard or reinforced profiles and can be supplied in widths ranging from 75 - 600mm and in three depth options: 50, 75 and 100mm. Alongside it, Cablofil has designed a complete range of accessories, including thermoformed fittings with integrated couplings that can be adapted to any configuration. Couplers and clips have been cleverly designed to simply clip onto the profile and an extensive range of tee kits, bends and risers means that installers have everything they need for a fast and simple installation.

Paul adds: PVC may not be the material that the UK market associates with the Cablofil name, but our PVC range has been developed with the same smart thinking, attention to detail and solutions-led approach as our steel wire system. In the water sector, where renewal programmes are often business-critical and on tight deadlines, a WIMES-approved, fast and simple to install, anti-corrosive PVC cable management system will tick all the boxes for specifiers.
