Screeduct have recently manufactured 60m of special trunking for the new Steam Centre on the Ashington campus of Northumberland College. The Steam Centre is a new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics centre.
Having worked on array of projects involving School, Colleges and Universities over the years, Screeduct are experienced in reacting to the needs of such environments. They worked alongside Norr of Newcsatle consultants, who were commissioned to design the project.
The trunking was 500mm wide by 175mm deep, manufactured all to plan from galvanized steel, with a 10mm thick mild steel chequer plate top , the tops have been galvanized, and some painted.
This trunking had a range of lid sizes 500 x 800mm, 500 x 400mm, 500 x 200mm. The unique aspect to this particular project is that all of the trunking lids could be interchanged in any position, future proofing the project, so no matter whether the usage of the space changes the access can fit the current needs . Some of the trunking lids have also been painted in yellow to indicate cutouts for the cables to pass through.
