Cable trunking is ‘first’ with curved profile

The distinctive curved profile of Marshall-Tufflex’s Odyssey cable trunking adds to its aesthetics.
Marshall-Tufflex has launched a cable-management system with a distinctive curved profile. Odyssey is said to be the first 3-compartment uPVC system on the market with a completely curved outer profile. All fittings are designed to ensure that the bending radius of data cables complies with Cat 6 requirements. Cat 6 cables require a larger bending radius than other cables, and the curved profile of Odyssey reduces its visual impact. The clip-on lid snaps on to the rear of the base, allowing the system to follow irregularities of the fixing surface to maintain the product’s smooth lines. Fittings are also extremely secure because of the special clip action. The extensive range of moulded fittings minimises the need for external couplers. Fixed horizontal bends have been designed to maximise aesthetics. There is also the option of adjustable bends to accommodate problems thrown up by building intolerances. The external adjustable bend has a built-in locking facility, and the installation of Odyssey trunking is made easier and faster with the addition of built-in cable trays. To protect against electro-magnetic interference, Marshall-Tufflex claims to be the only company offering a copper spray screening. Steel dividers are also available to protect data from power.
