Wire cable tray combines safety and fast installation
Following training from Cablofil in the installation of welded-steel-wire cable tray, Skanska completed a complex project for the new data centre of Cisco Systems in Reading on time, within budget and with no time lost through accidents. This new data centre employs extensive, high-density wiring and cabling for all mains-power distribution and low-voltage networks. Systems include fire, security and surveillance as well as the entire fibre-optic and other data-cabling networks. Containment and protection for all cabling and wiring is provided by over 1000 m of Cablofil welded-steel-wire cable tray. John Webb of Skanska’s electrical-installation team says, ‘The training session we had from Cablofil was completely hands-on, giving us all the chance to practise cutting and forming using the techniques we were shown. The charity Mencap benefits from the Safety@Skanska programme. £1 is donated for every near miss or hazard formally reported, with a further donation of £500 for every accident eliminated compared to the previous year.
