Marshall-Tufflex new complete guide to cable management


Easy-to-install decorative wiring accessory range from Hager


Hager’s new sollysta decorative wiring accessories range features shallow back projection, the UK’s first neutral loop terminal in wall switches, cable lead-ins, captive terminal screws, backed-out terminal screws, wire end stops, in-line terminals and a three-pin shutter mechanism on the sockets for safety. The wiring accessories are packed to avoid damage


during transit and installation. Says Hager product manager Jane Yorke: ‘Decorative wiring accessories are obviously chosen for their aesthetic appeal. It is therefore important to protect the accessories from any damage before and during installation. ‘Our new range of sollysta accessories has been


designed with both the installer and the end user in mind.’ The sollysta decorative wiring accessory range is


available in polished steel, brushed steel, polished brass and black nickel, with insert options of white or black. The rockers match the finish of the front plate to further enhance the aesthetics.

Marco protects trunking during installation


Marco Cable Management, the UK’s largest manufacturer of Steel Wire Cable Tray, has introduced a protective seal covering across its Elite range to prevent damage or marking during installation. The innovative seal follows customer feedback with


installers often concerned about the possibility of aesthetic damage caused during cable management installation. The coloured peel-back film will stay firmly intact until all work is complete, including painting, at which point the protective coat will be simply peeled away. Paul Diggins, Sales and Marketing and Director at


Marco Cable Management said: ‘Our Elite product range is particularly attractive with a bright white finish. Our aim to sustain this “clean” appearance, coupled with strong customer feedback, led us to introduce the protective coat. ‘This is now standard across the Elite range, and will


form part of all uPVC Trunking product development packages.’

program that improves the efficiency of solar PV testing by allowing the fast and simple recording, storing and searching of all electrical test and measurements in line with the requirements of many certification schemes and the IEC 62446 standard.

Recover your retentions with a Stellar service


Stellar Retention Recovery specialise in assisting specialist contractors who want to improve their cash flow, by reclaiming retention monies from main contractors. Stellar recognise the retention abuse caused by main contractors and rectify this by collecting the retentions due. We do this on a regular basis, representing an ever- increasing number of specialist contractors on contracts nationwide. As such, we often have such intimate knowledge as the date of Practical Completion, the whereabouts of the QS who avoids the calls, or the status of the defects (alleged and actual) that somehow prevent the main contractor getting the Final Certificate – such intimate knowledge that specialist contractors may not be party to. We charge only on monies successfully recovered. The benefits to your business are clear. Specialist contractors are freed of another time burden, have a reduced debtor list, improved cash flow and maybe a happier bank manager. Our current recovery success rate exceeds 82 per cent of the retentions that are due to our clients. For further information contact 0844 335 8352.
