- Useful tips
so-called cable channels, commonly used for the installation of the most various kinds of electrical wiring,are currently in great demand among specialists in wiring.And, indeed, these practical products reliably protect the guidance line from any mechanical impact and have the following advantages:
- ease of assembly, disassembly and maintenance of wiring, put in cable ducts;
- low cost products, as well as ease of attachment;
- high operational performance data cable manufactured based composite material and has therefore an increased resistance to fire.

Installation cable channel - gluing
Before you attach the cable channel , need to think carefully about the track layout in view of possible descents, climbsand turns laid lines.
Securing the cable channel Selection of fasteners used to mount the base of the cable channel, is usually determined by the base material (surface) on which it is fixed.The most common cable routing channels carried on the following surfaces:
- wooden walls or partitions;
- the surface of the drywall;
- brick walls and partitions;
- concrete bases (walls or ceilings);
- metal surfaces.
Wooden surfaces are most suitable, of course, self-tapping screws for wood, while concrete and brick bases fit dowels Special nails diameter of about 6-8 mm.
Surface mount plasterboard, you can use standard screws for wood.In the case of a significant total weight stacked in wiring channels, safer to use dowels "butterfly" (if it is allowed to alternate them with screws on wood).Enough reliable fastening represented in this situation, and anchors like "vvёrtyshi."
Choice fasteners on the metal depends on the thickness of the base;with standard screws to metal profiles suitable for installation on coating thickness of 2 mm.It is often used in this case and a common type of mounting as screws - "bugs."
Resizing cable channel
When selecting step, which must be installed fasteners should bear in mind that the more often they are located - the better.But all too often at the same time it is also not recommended.Note that the installation of a step in the 40-50 cm provide Bonding back cable channel you enough reliable mounting base cable channel.
goes without saying that in case of a significant increase in this distance increases and the possible load on each fixing element that adversely affects the reliability of the entire construction.
Mounting the top of the cable channel
is also worth noting the following.So how to fix the cable channel comes with an eye to the aesthetic aspect of the process, it does not hurt to use the building level, with which you will be able to align the track laying foundations, thereby increasing aesthetics of the installation.
