400A Rising Busbar – Coventry, UK

In April 2019 we were selected as the supplier for a rising busbar system to be installed at a student accomodation block in Coventry.

With the initial design for the system provided within 7 days of receipt of drawings, all parties were given ample time to ensure all was correct before placing orders. By the time the order was placed the requirements had changed slightly but an amended design was created within 24 hours ensuring no delays in production.

Space was at a premium for this installation

From point of order to delivery at our distributor in Coventry, the lead time was just 4 weeks.

Feedback from the installer on the project was that the system was easy to install, ideal for this project being tight on space and gave them massive time savings on testing as well.

Design process is vital for ensuring fire barriers sit correctly within the floor slab, the design for this system was turned around in just 7 days, with amendments completed within 24 hours of notification.

Power Busbar Installed In Coventry

When a precision engineering company relocated to a brand new purpose built unit, a requirement was quickly identified for an easier, quicker and more cost effective way of supplying the power to the lighting and machinery. After various design discussions with the appointed Electrical Contractor, AJA Contracts, Graziadio UK were able to assist by supplying both GLS Lighting Busbar and GDA Power Busbar.

Firstly, Graziadio 40A 6 pole GLS Lighting Busbar was supplied to allow the fast and economical installation of LED lighting and a flexible system for any future alterations. The 6 pole solution gave the option to incorporate the main lighting, emergency lighting, and Dali controls within a single busbar system and was therefore a very cost effective solution overall.

This part of the project was supplied in it’s entirety from UK stock and arrived on site the day after the initial order was placed.

Busbar and Hanger

A final layout using Graziadio 400A GDA power busbar was approved.  Due to the layout a number of bespoke lengths were required together with tee units and bends. Once the design was agreed and the order placed, Graziadio were able to manufacture the goods and have them ready for shipping just 14 working days from the date of order.

Not only that, enforced changes on site meant some last minute amendments needed to be made to the power busbar order. The day before it was due to leave our factory in Italy we were advised that an additional custom made length and flat bend would be required, and the end feed unit also needed to be changed for a different type.

The flexibility of the Graziadio factory in Italy was put to the test, and they were able to manufacture the custom length that afternoon, and add all the extra items to the original order which meant that it still left the factory on time the following day.

Once on site, each part of the project only took a few days to install, and the project was completed on schedule.

We were contacted by an installer in November 2015 regarding a new rising mains project that was starting late December 2015 – early January 2016.

The rising mains busbar system would need to include a fire barrier for each floor and due to the tight space in the rising main duct the busbar would need to be supplied in smaller custom lengths.

A completely bespoke project is a challenge any time of year – let alone a few weeks before Christmas where factories are approaching a two week shutdown. However, never ones to shy away from a challenge – we sent the site drawings to our design office in Italy who promptly returned a detailed design. Both end user and installer were happy with the design and proposal made and subsequently placed an order.

The goods arrived on site on time with each bespoke length labelled making it easy for the installer to determine how it fits together whilst also ensuring that fire barriers are positioned correctly. Both the installer and end user were very happy as this entirely bespoke project was quoted, designed and delivered within 6 weeks, this was due to the flexibility shown by our Italian factory ensuring that this project was prioritised.
