Wieland structured wiring was used in the refurbishment of 1A Wimpole Street in London.

Wieland Electric’s Metalynx structured wiring system was used for the refurbishment of 1A Wimpole Street in London to connect small power and lighting and to distribute the control cabling for the lighting management system. Built in 1912, this listed building is owned by Royal London Asset Management, and the refurbishment has created over 6000 m2 of modern office space occupied by a US multi-national food company.

Electrical contractor Raytell Electrical selected the Metalynx because it could meet all the requirements of the project. In addition, it was clear that the pluggable functionality of the system would save considerably time on site compared to making manual terminations.

The Metalynx system enables leads to be connected to luminaires at the factory, so that installation on site is simply a matter of plugging connectors together. Typical time savings compared to traditional installation methods can be as high as 80%.
