MT Supertube has been installed at a new research centre for rare children’s diseases at a leading children’s hospital in London.
Used across the new facility, MT Supertube was quick and easy to install – and because of its additional mechanical strength, in comparison to other conduit options, MT Supertube will provide a long-lasting solution for the hospital.
The unique design of MT Supertube – which comprises polyethylene internal and external layers over a continuous aluminium tube – makes it a robust, heavy-duty, LSOH conduit. This was vital for the hospital, to ensure the chosen cable management solution could offer continued, issue-free performance over time.
“We are incredibly proud to have worked on this project, assisting with the development of this world leading, pioneering research centre. For the new facility, the product was installed in the plantrooms, laboratories, super labs, tissue culture labs, treatment rooms, outpatient area, seminar rooms, validation suite and GMP area.”
It was important for the specified cable management system to offer increased security from data interference and MT Supertube offers excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) screening performance.
The chosen conduit was also required to meet BS EN 61386-1, which outlines the requirements and tests for conduit systems for the protection and management of cables in electrical or communication systems up to 1000 V a.c. or 1500 V d.c. MT Supertube is not only compliant with BS EN 61386-1, but it also meets BS 7671 and BS 8436 for nail penetration.
