FIRE SAFETY

VANTRUNK SPARKS INTEREST IN FIRE SAFETY

Specialists in cable management for extreme environments, Vantrunk, part of the Unitrunk Group has become the first cable management specialist in the UK to pass fire safety testing for its cable ladder systems.


The move pre-empts any mandatory requirement to certify cable management systems for fire safety in the UK or the EU and has seen Vantrunk proactively choose to invest in fire testing as part of a market-focused approach to supporting robust specification of cable management for any environment.
Independent third party tests have been carried out on Vantrunk’s 900mm SW4 medium duty cable ladder in both stainless steel and hot-dip galvanised, alongside a number of the other cable management systems in its portfolio, including 450mm wide heavy duty UniKlip cable tray and 300mm wide medium duty UniKlip cable tray, and 450mm hot-dip galvanised cable tray.


Vantrunk’s projects director, Alan Campbell comments: “Our cable management systems are designed for tough environments and we know that they can withstand the harshest of conditions. These tests were all about verifying that the cables held within the cable management infrastructure will remain intact and fully-functioning at temperature extremes, underpinning both safety and business continuity for the end user.
“We believe that fire testing should be integral to quality assurance processes for all cable management systems, regardless of whether compliance to a standard is required, and we’re proud to be setting the bar for the sector.”


To pass the fire tests, all the cable management systems had to withstand a temperature curve rising as high as 1000C. The cables in the system had to maintain circuit integrity during the test in order for teh system to meet the test criteria. The systems were then fire rated based on the number of minutes they were able to successfully withstand these conditions.
 

VANTRUNK AWARD FOR WEST NILE DELTA SUPPLY PERFORMANCE

Excellence is its own reward

news story

Excellence is a great word, isn’t it? If we all invested in doing an excellent job of serving customers and providing excellent quality and design across all we do, just think of the value that philosophy would deliver across the supply chain.


It’s an approach that’s embedded in our culture at Vantrunk and one we share with global engineering, construction and project management company, Bechtel. Indeed, Bechtel has recently recognised Vantrunk with an award for ‘Supply Chain Excellence’, rewarding us for being ‘committed to providing quality products and superior service’.


The award, presented to our Group Projects Director Alan Campbell at Bechtel’s London offices, follows our achievement in supplying more than 200,000 metres of specialist grade cable management systems to Bechtel’s West Nile Delta project for BP. Not only did we maintain the highest standards of quality throughout but we also responded to the customer’s requirements for meeting an accelerated delivery programme, helping Bechtel deliver their own industry-leading standards to BP by supporting them with Vantrunk’s focus on excellence.


It’s an award that’s already taken pride of place at our manufacturing plant in Warrington because it’s an accolade that’s only handed out following a thorough evaluation of how we worked with Bechtel to answer their requirements, work collaboratively with the Bechtel team and go the extra mile to help them achieve their objectives. Nominations were reviewed and approved by Bechtel’s procurement team and project managers, with final recommendations approved by the company’s senior leadership team. In addition to overall performance, we were evaluated on our ability to deliver quality products on time and our success in meeting or exceeding expectations against criteria as diverse as technical expertise and environmental compliance.


It’s wonderful when the efforts of your whole team are appreciated and formally recognised like this, and it’s a testament to the value that Bechtel places on supply chain relationships that they reward partners in this way. But of course, that’s not why we strive for excellence in everything we do. At Vantrunk, excellence is all about delivering our passion for innovation, exceeding expectations and enabling world-class projects across every detail of everything we do every day and that’s a reward we should all be striving for.
