Greenings becomes a favourite with Debenhams

Cable management for the new 17 000 m2 new-concept, 3-level Debenhams department store that is part of the 34 000 m2 expansion of the MetroCentre at Newcastle is being achieved using a range of Greenings cable trays. This is the biggest Debenhams store outside of London. RM50 heavy-duty and RM25 medium-duty return-flange cable trays are being installed to carry cables for ancillary equipment such as fire, security, lighting and building-management systems. MDL 100 and HDL 125 cable ladder carries the store’s power cables. Steel wire-mesh tray by parent company Cablofil carries data cables.
