Marshall-Tufflex behind the scenes at Battersea

Marshall-Tufflex

More than 500 apartments in the £9 billion revamp of London’s iconic Battersea Power Station have utility cupboards pre-fabricated with a cable management solution from Marshall-Tufflex.

The cupboards were assembled off-site and delivered complete with Marshall-Tufflex Sterling Profile 3 white trunking to supply power for apartment ventilation and heat interface units; cupboard lighting; hot water; the fire alarm and security system; satellite television; BT networks; a leak detection panel and washing machine.

A ‘non-power’ section carries EMS wiring and outgoing data, telephone and TV cables together with a link to energy metering/billing services.

“This has been a really interesting project to work on for two reasons,” said Marshall-Tufflex project and specification manager, Barry Roberts.

“We are best-known for working in the commercial cable management sector, so to supply a large and prestigious domestic project was an interesting request. It is also somewhat unusual for trunking to be pre-fabricated in this manner but for this project it made total sense and allowed for an integral element of each apartment to be prepared in a controlled environment and simply slotted into place and connected up at exactly the right time in the build schedule.”

Marshall-Tufflex’s Sterling Profile 3 has a neat finish that keeps all cabling hidden and inaccessible while delivering a large amount of power and data cabling to the required services. Its square edges fit cleanly together and multi-compartments allow for versatility and full segregation of services.
