PROTUM Office: An elegant look for cable management
06 October 2020
The PROTUM P0400GS01 cable carrier from KABELSCHLEPP Metool, which is part of the PROTUM Office series for office workstations, has a very special design.
The linking of the side band to a cutout in the cable conduit, for example, is achieved with a predefined contour. This allows the maximum size for the cable feedthrough as well as comfortable cable installation and routing. This assembly type is easy and saves time and money. In addition, the attractive cable carrier is now also available as a double-chamber version that can accommodate up to 16 cables.
The advantage of the special designs with the designation P0400GS01 is that the cable carriers can be connected to existing components without additional end connectors. The special side band of the PROTUM Office series simply attaches to the predefined contour, for example in a cutout in the cable tray. "This allows users to reduce the assembly time while avoiding costs for additional connections," explains Werner Eul, Senior Product Manager Cable Carrier Systems at KABELSCHLEPP.
"Even large numbers of data and power cables can be integrated into office furniture in a clearly structured and visually appealing way." On request, KABELSCHLEPP Metool provides the CAD data for the contour free of charge, which customers can then use in their own designs.
The new cable carrier design also features a wide version and a high-quality finish, for improved visual concealment of the cables. In addition, users can simply clip the magnetic holders – which are used to attach the cable carriers to table frames – to the rear side of the cable carrier. "The double-chamber version is also new. This could previously only be achieved with alternating assembly," Werner Eul continues.
"We now also offer this as a complete component." The flat single-chamber version of the PROTUM Office P0400GS is ideal for height-adjustable desks. This cable carrier can hold up to eight cables with commonly used diameters and can be combined with all components from the PROTUM Office modular system. That also applies to the variant for non-height adjustable desks, which are also available as double-chamber cable routing elements with floor connection. In this larger version, which features the double cross section, data and power cables can be continuously separated with the side band.
The lightweight cable carriers from the PROTUM Office modular system from KABELSCHLEPP Metool can be used to easily bundle data and power cables directly on the desk and then guided to the floor or ceiling from there. As each workstation is different, the modular system allows flexible cable routing with many new options. A PROTUM Office with magnetic holders, for example, can replace vertical cable ducts on table frames. The standard colours of the modular system allow 12 different colour combinations. As a standard, the cable carriers are offered as pre-assembled kits including fixing elements. As an alternative, users can use the individual components to assemble their own customised solutions, which are also delivered ready to install.
