600 & 609 Cabinets | Junction 16-19, M6
The NAL MCX Cabinet base was chosen by Keir for all the Communications (600 type) and Power (609 type) cabinets on the M6 Junction 16- 19 Motorway Project.
Replacing the traditional 610 plinth, the NAL system was chosen as it simplified the civils and cabling installation process as well as future proofing the cabinets for the NRTS after the scheme is completed.
The system increases the duct capacity to and between each cabinet, and removes the requirement for base seal and pea gravel. All incoming cables are easily accessible and sealed with IP67 glands at the base of the cabinet. The system raises the Cabinets to a better working height for installation and maintenance engineers and ensures they are not affected by flooding.
The end result was a major reduction in the whole cabinet installation time which subsequently increased safety, reduced disruption and led to substantial cost savings on the overall project.
