Safely stowing aircraft cables
Safe, tidy solution
Robust, flame-retardant fittings
Ease of installation and maintenance
Aircraft cable ducts
With so much complex electronics and technology onboard, the average modern aircraft requires between 70 to 300 miles of wire. To ensure the safety of both passengers and crew, it is imperative that these aviation cables be securely stowed away. That's a lot of cable management, and weight is a crucial factor in aviation. Using strong but lightweight plastics is an ideal way to ensure weight is kept to a minimum while cables are organized and out of harm's way.
Plastic cable ducts, made from the flame-retardant and robust Polyamide 12 offer a hard-wearing solution that meets stringent aviation sector fire protection requirements. Designed for underfloor installation in the cabin gangway, the plastic cable duct is divided in two parts: one is the rectangular guide element for the cables, the other part consists of a flattened cover that enables trip-proof installation. Clipping the part on and off allows for ease of access for regular repair and cleaning work.
