Electrical Wiring Services in Kenya Methodologies
At Moffam Electricals, we strive to offer electrical wiring services that are seamless and secure. To guarantee that your demands are addressed, we use a variety of methods.
1. Conduit Wiring
A conduit wiring system is one in which all wires or cables are carried through iron or PVC pipes from supply to load. The purpose of running wires through the pipes is to protect it from unfavorable impacts of weather, physical deterioration, fire risks, and atmospheric influences. When running cables through pipes, care must be taken to prevent damage to the insulation. Compared to the other wiring systems, this type is the most frequently utilized.
Types of Conduit Wiring
Conduit wiring refers to the installation of conduits on the exterior of a wall or roof. The first holes for this kind of wiring are drilled into the wall in a straight line at equal intervals. After that, rowel plugs are inserted in these holes and saddles are attached above them using screws. Conduits are then put in place above it. The number of wires that will be run through the conduit determines its size when utilized for this form of wiring. Furthermore, fittings will be utilized that are the same size as the conduit that is used for wiring.
Concealed conduit wiring is a type of wiring in which PVC conduit is hidden by creating grooves in the wall, which are subsequently plastered over. It is known as concealed conduit wiring because only switches and lamp holders are visible from the outside on this sort of wiring. In other terms, concealed wiring refers to wire that is installed inside a pipe that is part of a wall. Plaster is applied after pipe has been installed and grooves have been created on the wall for the concealed wiring.
Only a few junction box locations are still visible, from which wiring may be maintained and fixed. Before being plastified, conduit pipes are firmly fastened to the walls using hooks. PVC conduit pipes are disseminated across a roof before concrete is applied during a linter, whereas grooves are excavated into building walls before plaster is applied, and conduit pipes are subsequently fastened in these grooves.
And it becomes plastid. draw wires are used to insert wires into these fitting conduits after the plaster on walls and roofs has dried. This sort of wiring is shielded against fire, water, wetness, and other weather factors because the conduits are not visible. All switchboards are installed on walls as part of the disguised wiring system, which also employs flush-type switches and plugs. This kind of wiring is frequently utilized in homes, workplaces, bungalows, and other contemporary structures.
2. Batten Wiring
This is one of the most basic electrical wiring techniques used today. Insulated wires run through wooden battens. These are typically fixed on walls and ceilings using plugs or screws. It is a simple yet efficient wiring technique common in indoor installations.
Types of Batten Wiring
CTS, TSR, or PVC cables are used for this type of wiring. These cables’ ability to withstand chemicals, steam, and water makes them sufficiently safe for use. The wires are attached to the batten with tinned brass link clips and spaced around 10 cm apart. Low voltage insulations are suited for this style of batten wiring.
TRS or PVC wires with metal insulation are used in this form of wiring. The thickness of the coating on the metals is about 1mm. Lead, an alloy of aluminum comprising 95% lead, is the material utilized for the sheath or coating. Additionally, these wires are attached to the battens by tinned brass link clips.
3. Casing and Capping Wiring
One of the oldest and most widely used wire techniques still in use today is casing and capping. PVC-insulated wires are encased in plastic casings and protected with a cap in this approach to electrical wiring. The casing and capping system is frequently used for low voltage wiring in homes, workplaces, and gadgets, as well as for wire distribution and safety.
The casing is often a rectangular strip with a grey or white channel and cap. It comes in sizes of 1.5 inches in width and 0.8 inches in thickness, with a standard “case and cap” length of 39.4 inches. The system has a 20-year lifespan and performs admirably in homes and offices.
3. Cleat Wiring
When comparing labor costs and beginning costs, clat wiring is among the least expensive wiring systems and is best suited for a temporary electrical wiring system. This wiring system is simple to install, check, and modify. VIR or PVC insulated wire is utilized as a conductor in this sort of wiring.
All of the cables in this wiring system are in the open, making it very simple to spot faults and swiftly replace them. Therefore, most army campuses today employ cleat wiring, as well as for special occasions like weddings.
Cleat wiring is recommended only for temporary installment.
