Cable trunkings

What is cable trunking for?

With modern technology and the intrusion of more and more electronic devices into our daily lives, our rooms are now cluttered with more and more cables. The trend is similar in individual domestic rooms, offices and public buildings. Overcrowded cables are not only unpleasant and spoil the overall appearance of a room, but in some cases can also be hazardous. This is why cable trunking is needed as a product category. Cable trunking ensures the safe installation and use of cables in buildings and facilities. It is even obligatory when an indoor system cannot be installed or when it would not be worthwhile. With cable trunking, all cables are assembled in one place and protected against potentially damaging environmental factors. See below for more information about their benefits and advantages and the different types of cable trunking you can choose.

What are the main advantages of cable trunking?

The advantages of using cable trunking relate to many aspects, from improving convenience and safety to enhancing the interior aesthetics of a room. Here is what you need to know about each of these advantages:
1. Safety: it is essential to pay attention to safety both for people and for the cables themselves. Dragging numerous cables for different appliances and devices around a room is inappropriate. On the one hand, this creates a risk of entanglement and tripping up on the cables, while at the same time the cables could be accidentally damaged. The latter is particularly likely in industrial premises where corrosive chemicals are continuously used. All the hazards listed here can be avoided by installing suitable cable trunking. Cable trunking is the best way to protect cables from external environmental factors.

2. Convenience: this must be mentioned in connection with cable-type products. Cable trunking in practice collects all the cables in the room in one place. This ensures fast and easy access to them. In the absence of cable trunking, cables are often scattered around furniture or other interior features of the room (TV sets, computers, etc.). This can make them difficult to reach, especially if the objects and possessions have to be moved.

3. Easy installation: another advantage of cable trunking, which it is so popular among modern users, is that it is easy to install. It can be fitted almost problem-free on any wooden, metal or other surface. Cable trunking can be fastened with screws or glue. ElmarkStore also has self-adhesive cable trunking that does not require them. See below for further information about self-adhesive cable trunking.

4. Installing complex systems: relatively complex wiring systems can be installed in a room using cable trunking, including systems with numerous cables, derivations and other components. Systems such as these are typically needed in specialised offices and hospitals and where numerous high-tech devices are used. These systems can be ideally organised with the use of cable trunking, which locates their individual components in the room as efficiently as possible.

5. Aesthetic appearance: this advantage should not be forgotten. As in individual premises and rooms in a home, office or public building, it is important for the interior to be uncluttered and pleasant. This is impossible when a lot of cables and branches are strewn across the floor. Only cable trunking can save you from this problem. With cable trunking, cables are not only gathered in the same place, but they remain hidden from view. In addition, cable trunking is available in different colours on the market to meet all tastes and preferences.

Types of cable trunking

There are several main types of cable trunking, the choice of which depends on the user’s particular requirements. See below for further information about each type of cable trunking, its characteristics and features.
 standard cable trunking: this is the most common type of cable trunking in homes, offices and public buildings, available in a wide range of sizes from 12/12 mm to 100/60 mm. Except in terms of size, standard cable trunking may differ from one type to another in terms of several other key features. ElmarkStore's online shop offers self-adhesive cable trunking designed to facilitate the overall assembly process. With this cable trunking you will not need to use screws or special adhesives. All you have to do is remove the protective tape on the back of the cable trunking and then press it against the wall until it sticks properly. In addition to traditional white cable trunking, we also offer colourful products in this category. Depending on the features of your room interior, you can choose between pear-coloured, light beech and dark walnut.

- floor cable trunking: as its name suggests, floor cable trunking is used to gather all the cables strewn across the floor of a room in a protected environment. It protects users from tripping, falling and other accidents and protects the cable itself, maintaining its condition over time. The ElmarkStore collection includes white and grey coloured cable trunking.

Criteria for choosing the right cable trunking

The type of cable trunking is not the only thing to keep in mind when choosing a product in this category. Other important criteria include the dimensions and length of the cable trunking, its colour and brand. See below for further information on the criteria listed above.
- dimensions and length: ElmarkStore's online shop offers cable trunking in a wide variety of sizes starting at 12/12 mm up to 100/60 mm, so that you can choose the most suitable cable trunking for the number of cables you want to hide inside it. The cable trunking on the market usually has a standard length of 2 m. However, if you need a shorter piece, you can easily make the necessary adjustments. Cable trunking can be cut with an angle grinder or hacksaw so you can get the exact length you need.

Cable trunking: useful tips and recommendations

Finally, here are some helpful tips and recommendations on how to install cable trunking. These tips will help you fit the cable trunking in the right way to ensure it can be used later to your best advantage. Here is what we mean:
 tight to the corner: we recommend that you fit the cable trunking as close as possible to the angle between the walls. This brings two major benefits. On the one hand, it is more convenient for laying the different cables and derivations in the room and, on the other hand, the cable trunking can literally merge with the walls themselves (especially if the colours match).

- use rawlplugs and screws to install cable trunking. These are more reliable than the various adhesives that many users still have the habit of using for this process.
