Rehau’s Profila data cable management system has been installed throughout many of the classroom areas at the newly built Ark Academy in Wembley.
The 180 x 65mm system was chosen by outsourcing company MITIE for the power and data cabling on the basis of its quality, durability and ease of installation. John Eagan, Project Manager at MITIE, said: “We were very impressed with the Rehau product, particularly the ease and speed of fitting. Features such as flexible internal and external corners meant an excellent quality of finish could be achieved in much less time than with other similar systems.
“We also liked the simple solution for achieving Part M compliance on the project using high visibility modular inserts around the socket outlets.”
In total 2,640m of Profila data trunking has been installed in classroom areas in both the two storey primary school and the 3-4 storey secondary school built on the same site in the shadow of Wembley Stadium.
The Ark Academy is a non selective, non denominational school, with separate primary and secondary school facilities. It is part of the ARK schools network which is an educational charity.
