Channel termination

Duct ends are a necessary finishing element for any cable installation. This category includes all types of end caps and plugs, most often made of PVC. They provide not only an aesthetic appearance but also protection against external factors. They can have various sections and methods of assembly, depending on the system of installed channels, trays or strips. The most popular producers of such channels - and the endings themselves - are, for example, Simon Connect, Obo Betterman or Legrand.

Cable ducts - when is it used?

Cable ducts are a very popular electricity distribution system, used primarily in large offices, but also, for example, in workshops or utility rooms. It is chosen when the possibility of a simple modernization of the installation is needed. It works great when it is necessary to supply energy to workstations located far away from the walls - as is the case, for example, in open spaces. Thanks to the routing of cables outside the walls, there is no need to interfere with the plastered surfaces. Thus, such installations are much cleaner. The undeniable advantage of cable channels is also quick and easy installation.

Popular accessories for cable ducts

The great advantage of cable channels is their flexibility. Not only wall but also floor ducts are used. Thanks to various connections of channels, strips and trays, electricity can be brought to almost anywhere in the room - regardless of the distance from the wall. However, such a modular construction requires the use of various connecting elements (e.g. corners or connectors) and finishing elements (e.g. covers, endings or plugs).

In the case of angular connections, various types of angle connectors are used. When the walls are straight, standard corners are used - at an angle of 90 degrees. There are also connections with an adjustable angle that will work well when installing in rooms with uneven walls. When connecting at an angle of 45 degrees, an elbow insertion is used. In addition, a variety of connectors are useful - e.g. T-shaped, allowing to connect the channels at right angles. This type of finishing accessories can be found, for example, in the Simon Connect channel series. In the case of electro-communication cables, arcs for optical fibers are also used. In order to hide and organize cables aesthetically, which must retain full flexibility (e.g. powering computers at workstations), various types of cable organizers are used.

Channel termination - types

Cable channels and strips are most often made of white PVC. All kinds of plugs and covers are also available in the same color. Depending on the system used, black, gray or graphite endings are also possible. Some manufacturers also offer skirting boards and channel endings in colors imitating wood - which resembles skirting skirting boards. Endings made of galvanized steel are also available.

Regardless of the material used, they must be characterized by high resistance to a wide range of temperatures - most often in the range from -30 to 65 degrees Celsius. As for the degree of protection on the IP scale, such installations should provide protection at the IP 40 level - thus preventing access to the installation by means of an element with a wire thickness and the ingress of particles with a diameter greater than or equal to 1 mm.

The endings of the channels differ from each other due to the method of assembly. Both detachable and screw-on covers are used. In the case of the first type of tips, there is a cap that is very easy to install. Protruding plastic tabs make the tip quickly nest in the channel. Unfortunately, it is relatively easy to unplug it accidentally. The second type of tips uses screw assembly. Such a stable attachment in the channel protects much better against accidental opening of the end of the channel or the strip.
