Panel Trunking

Slotted panel trunking, also referred to as finger trunking or wire duct, is an essential component in electrical panel building. Its design features removable slots, allowing for efficient organisation, routing, and concealment of wires and cables within panels. This facilitates easy access for adjustments and maintenance, ensuring the setup is safe, orderly, and visually neat, which is critical for effective panel management and operation.

What are the benefits of Panel Trunking?

Panel trunking is a type of cable trunking that is made from plastic materials such as self-extinguishing PVC, polypropylene, or halogen-free PC ABS. Panel trunking has many benefits that will help improve the organisation, safety and cable management of electrical installations:

  • Cable Protection - Electrical trunking guards against mechanical damage and accidental impacts, ensuring cables remain intact and operational.

  • Improved Aesthetics - Panel trunking makes electrical work look more professional by consolidating multiple wires into one group.

  • Easier Cable Management - The fingers within slotted trunking allow for easy access to the wires, making maintenance, repairs and troubleshooting a more efficient process.
