Legrand’s range of Zucchini busbars

Safety first

Legrand’s range of Zucchini busbars, which forms part of the company’s complete power distribution system, has critical advantages over conventional cable installations. The versatility of this system means easy adaptation to layout modifications or expansion of the existing installation environment.

“These high power busbars, which are designed for the safe and efficient distribution of electricity in industrial, commercial and service sector applications, are fast and efficient to install,” explains Luk Ivens, general manager, Legrand Southern Africa. “This system accommodates current and future planning of power distribution systems to meet the high demands of modern installations and complex requirements. This flexibility is more difficult to achieve when using traditional cables because the wiring installation has to be in series and is therefore not easily adjustable to design and installation variables.”

An important advantage of selecting Legrand components for efficient, safe and flexible power distribution is the immediate integration between the company’s busbar trunking systems, cast resin transformers and XL³ cabinets.

Firing fire REF: MMPR 133

product133Benefits to the industry: When it comes to the risk of fire, understanding how to modify the dynamics of water is a crucial element.
Sustainability: BlazeTamer solution from aircraft and helicopters will assist in controlling fire spread and greatly reduce the amount of time required and water used to successfully attack the fire.
The unique formulation of BlazeTamer creates an excellent fire break by penetrating Class A materials to increase the moisture content of the fuel, thus inhibiting the ignition. The product has also been proven to be very effective in the suppression of Class A, Class B, and Class F fires. mmpr
