Safer by design

Hager has launched a fully pluggable electrical distribution system, from the distribution board to luminaires that significantly reduces installation time and ensures full compliance with the wiring regulations.

Klik.system consists of a number of distribution products linked by prefabricated wiring sections, which simply plug together.

To ensure that the final installation complies with all of the relevant standards and regulations, Hager has also developed a bespoke software package. This produces a fully calculated design, which includes drawings, electrical calculations, test information and delivery schedules.

Steve York, Product Manager for Klik.system says:  “Some prefabricated wiring systems have been associated with serious safety issues. Areas of concern include reversed polarity, under rated couplers and incorrectly sized wiring sections.”

In response to these safety needs, BSI has developed and then further amended the standard BS8488:2009+A1:2010 to ensure that safety requirements are met and that systems are tested.

By designing and supplying the entire system from the pre-wired pluggable distribution boards, through the lighting installation system right down to the wiring accessories, Hager can guarantee that all of the elements in the circuit are compatible.
