Wieland delivers electrics for Leathersellers

Wieland Electric’s Metalynx2 structured wiring system has been used for connecting power and lighting in the redeveloped 5-7 St Helens Place, Bishopsgate, London. It was specified and installed by The Designer Group.

The 6-storey building is owned by The Leathersellers’ Company, one of the ancient livery companies of the City of London. It has undergone a complete redevelopment, with the front facade retained by the rest of the building demolished and rebuilt.

The Metalynx2 system enables recessed modular lighting and power to be fed via separated distribution boards with home runs along the containment route out to open-plan office areas.

Man hours on site were reduced by 70% as the structured armoured system was delivered complete for easy connection.

Wieland extenders, tees and fused spurs were also used to feed lighting-control modules and fan coils on site.
