Prefabricated electrical- distribution system addresses safety issues

Hager, electrical distribution

Hager has launched a fully pluggable electrical distribution system, from distribution board to luminaires, that significantly reduces installation time and ensures full compliance with the Wiring Regulations. Klik system consists of a number of distribution products linked by prefabricated wiring sections that simply plug together.

To ensure that the final installation complies with all the relevant standards and regulations, Hager has developed software that produces a fully calculated design which includes drawings, electrical calculations, test information and delivery schedules.

By designing and supplying an entire system from prewired, pluggable distribution boards to the lighting installation system right down to wiring accessories, Hager can guarantee that all elements in the circuit are compatible.

For lighting control, specifiers can choose from a basic manual-switching system, a standard automatic system using occupancy sensors and photocells, or a digital system. The digital system can take into account available daylight as well as artificial light to save energy, as recommended by Part L.

Steve York, product manager for Klik systems, says, ‘Prefabricated wiring systems can save up to 50% of time on site, but in the past there have been problems. Because we supply the complete system, the specifier only need to contact us and the lighting manufacturer, rather than multiple suppliers.
