Time really is money when it comes to installation or maintenance in electrical control panels and switch cabinets. Whenever cables are chaotically arranged in wiring ducts, panel builders waste valuable time. It pays to be tidy in more ways than one. velcro reusable cable ties Read on to discover the advantages that the HelaDuct product range brings professional panel builders.

“To save space in the switch cabinet, panel builders install as many cables in the wiring duct as possible,” explains James Orsini, Product Marketing Manager at HellermannTyton. “But the cables often fall out as fast as they can be crammed in,” the installation expert explains. “Even if the installer succeeds, the cables will inevitably spill out when the cover is removed for the next maintenance inspection.”

Orsini is familiar with the extreme lengths that some panel builders go to in order to keep their wiring in check. He often encounters rubber bands in the wiring ducts, artistically twisted pieces of plastic or stiff wire clamped between the duct ribs. These practices are simply a no-go for professionals, he points out: “Odd bits of cable have no place in panels. They are neither permanent nor tidy solutions. Quality-conscious panel builders use retention clips or wire retainers, as we call them at HellermannTyton.”HellermannTyton’s HelaDuct product range offers a complete system for correctly fastening cables in electrical panels. It opens up many possibilities for engineers and installers to simplify and professionalise cable management in their switch cabinet.

They not only facilitate quick, tidy and safe work, but also make a professional and competent impression on the customer. Anyone working with these systems shows that they respect quality requirements and want to present their work in a professional manner.”
