Modular Wiring Systems, a subsidiary of electrical cable manufacturer Tratos Ltd, has opened a new demonstration and training facility at its Slough offices.
The ‘Modular Academy’ is a showcase for Modular Wiring Systems’ product range and services. The large ground floor room has been divided into three key sections – Power, Lighting and Bespoke Equipment – each with working equipment, allowing customers to see and interact with Modular Wirings products in action.
“The new Modular Academy will allow us to clearly show how modular wiring systems work”, states Neil Ancell, Managing Director of Modular Wiring Systems. “Despite such systems being on the market for some 25 years, many specifiers, developers and contractors remain unfamiliar with them and are therefore reluctant to move away from the traditional approach of fixed installations which are labour intensive and costly”.
“We are also keen to show how our systems differ from others in the market. Having the equipment on show in a working demonstration allows us to do this as the quality of the product is immediately obvious, from the cabling to the connections. Customers can see the difference first hand”.
The new ‘Modular Academy’ is available free of charge to anyone who wants to learn more about the concept of modular wiring systems, including specifiers, electrical and mechanical contractors and training providers and their students.
