Cable ducts are a device for assembling cables and wires and their compact laying at the site of electrical work.
Its use significantly improves the appearance of the wiring. This is especially important when it is necessary to run not only an electric wire but also a telephone cable, Internet connection, etc.
The product itself is a tray with perforations on the sides. Usually comes with a lid. We offer perforated plastic boxes. In Ukraine, this is a fairly common product.
Types of cable ducts
There are several types of cable ducts.
- Floor standing. They are characterized by increased durability.
- Corner. This type is stylized as an element of interior decor.
- Parapet. They have a large cross-section and the ability to install outlets directly on the cable channel.
- Perforated. They have a low price, lightweight and have good heat dissipation.
- Flexible. Due to their elasticity, they can be fixed on uneven surfaces.
You can also select these products by color, depending on the design of the room. In Ukraine, gray ones are most often offered, but you can order white or black ones.

Restrictions on the use of PVC slotted panel trunkings
No matter how convenient these products are, there are some restrictions on their use.
Do not run vinyl duct wiring in wooden houses. In them, the wires must be exclusively in a metal frame.
Why? If a short circuit occurs in the wiring, the walls of the cable ducts themselves will not be ignited. However, they heat up and may melt. And this will lead to a fire of adjacent parts, which is very dangerous in wooden structures.
In this sense, metal trays are more reliable. Even in the case of a short circuit directly to their case, they will last a sufficient amount of time for the protective mechanism in the switchboard to work.
