A wire duct is a cable and wire management product that routes and hides electrical wiring in control panels. It allows for easy pulling, organization, and separation of cables.
Most wire ducts come with slots on the side panels for adding, removing, and rerouting of cables. Depending on their designs and sizes, you can choose between an adhesive mounting and drilling for installation.
A full range of wire duct fittings, bends, and junctions are available in the market. Bends range from 90° to 11.25° angles, and different companies can supply custom angles on request. Similarly, junctions are available in various designs, and they can also be made according to particular requirements and specifications.
Wire Duct Accessories
Some accessories used in electrical ducting installation are:
Labeled as ‘chamber entry connectors,’ bell mounts provide a neat and clean duct end finish when a duct enters into a chamber. Besides, they prevent the duct from poking into the chamber and control access on the inside.
Ducting spacers are used when the pipes are laid for keeping the length of pipes separate from each other. They make the running of multiple pipe layers in a parallel manner possible and thereby eliminate the threat of damage from movement.
Standard sizes of spacers include 2, 4, 6, and 8-way but, you can order them to be made at any specification and diameter.
Couplers have comparatively simpler functions. They do the job of connecting existing pieces of pipe together.
Several Types of Wire Duct Fittings
Sometimes, it is needed to join two lengths of a duct to prevent the duct from falling. Duct joiners come in handy in those applications as they work as the connectors. You can use them for attaching duct runs or grilles.
Duct reducers come in handy when you need to reduce the size of your duct run.
Inline Backdraught Shutters
The function of a spring-loaded inline shutter is to stop backdraughts in duct runs.
Y branches make it easier to split a duct in two directions.
Branch Take Offs (BTO) & Double Branch Take Offs (DBTO)
BTOs divide a duct in two different directions while DBTOs can split it into three directions.
Ducting Joiners & Bends
A selection of joiners and bends are available for joining and changing the direction of duct panels, respectively.
Duct silencers mainly work for the active reduction of noise in a duct system. You can also use two silencers together for improved performance and for a situation where noise reduction is the primary requirement.
Various companies produce a range of neck adaptors that do the function of connecting a duct to face-only grilles.
