Legrand has moved to strengthen its position as the global leader in wiring devices by launching a new range it says will change the market beyond recognition. Arteor is a wiring device

and home automation range – designed with an international outlook to satisfy global expectations – that combines cutting edge style with state-of-the-art technology in a fashion that is creating a real buzz among interior designers, specifiers and system integrators. Mark Evans, Legrand’s

marketing director said: ‘Arteor has everything in terms of looks, functionality and technical capability and we strongly believe it can take wiring devices to a whole new level’.

n Prysmian FP Marco ELITE

Marco, the UK’s largest manufacturer of steel wire cable tray, and a uPVC cable management company, has expanded its product range with the launch of ELITE, a striking new three option line, marking the next generation in uPVC cable management systems. This stunning new range,

finished in a pure white, high-gloss sheen, has been designed for use in power and high-density structured cabling systems including CAT5E, CAT6, CAT7 and the new CAT6A 10 gig solution. Available in three sizes, offering customers choice and flexibility, this highly durable system holds huge aesthetic and practical appeal for a broad range of installations.


In May, five new galleries at the Museum of London opened to the public, telling the story of the capital from the 1666 Great Fire of London to the present day, at a cost of £20m. The extensive redevelopment

benefits from a state-of-the- art fire alarm system, using Prysmian FP Plus cable. Installations manager Paul Budden said: ‘We have made exclusive use of Prysmian FP for the past five to six years, as we know it is by far the best product in the marketplace for the work we carry out and our engineers like it as it is quick and easy to install.’

n Riegens

Riegens Lighting has provided a modern, versatile lighting system at The Weaving Shed, a former mill building situated on the banks of the Ettrick in Selkirk, Scottish Borders. Part of an important building

complex once providing employment for 20,000 in the weaving, spinning, and knitwear industries, the listed building has re-opened, following a £3m renovation, to provide first class HQ office space for up to 120 people in the Eildon Housing Group. Eildon’s refurbishments

required two floors each to house two open plan working areas per floor, plus a conference room and a number of small meeting/ training rooms on each floor. n

Thorn Lighting

Thorn’s all-new PopPack, the 16th generation of the world’s best-selling light fitting, is poised to change the way contractors view fluorescent lighting. Instead of the standard

batten, there is a luminaire with a backspine that pushes into place on two mounting plates; easier electrical connection; rapid authentic emergency conversion via a plug-in LED module; and straight-forward presence and daylight detection, all in addition to T5 or T8 lamps and a wider range of attachments for commercial and industrial requirements. Contractors can now fit nine new fittings in the same time it used to take to fit four.


Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric’s GET range of Ultimate wiring accessories has been used in an iconic new 15-storey building located in the Paddington Basin, London. Waterline House in Merchant Square, developed by European Land, is a major landmark in the west of London and features a mix of residential apartments, as well as office and retail spaces. Electrical contractors, Imtech

Meica are responsible for installing Schneider Electric’s GET Ultimate switches, sockets and light fittings throughout the 153 apartments. To ensure the interior of the high-end, luxury apartments reflected the structure’s stunning façade, screwless flat plate sockets and switches were specified.


Schneider Electric

Global energy management specialist Schneider Electric is calling for clearer advice on the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, following reports from customers who are still confused by the legislation. Although qualifying

organisations have until October to sign up to the scheme that was introduced in April, many companies yet to register will be affected by it. David Snow, senior energy consultant at Schneider Electric, is urging businesses to introduce monitoring and metering solutions sooner rather than later. If firms’ energy usage from all sources is underestimated, he says, additional allowances may have to be purchased at a higher cost than the initial price.

n Seaward

The latest addition to Seaward’s range of portable appliance testers incorporates a unique range of electrical safety tests to ensure workplace electrical equipment poses no danger to users. The new hand-held PrimeTest

250 is the first electrical tester in its class to provide all the electrical tests required for compliance with the IEE code of practice for the in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment – and includes a host of other features. Among these additional test capabilities are an RCD trip time test, a three-phase leakage test, and a 250V DC insulation test suitable for testing sensitive electrical appliances and surge protected leads.
