  • Description & Key Features

    Product Description

    The GW550 Pipe and Cable Ducting and GW551 Cover board is designed to provide a cost effective solution over traditional methods of shuttering which can be complicated and time consuming to form.
    The duct is ideal for internal runs of cables and other services for up to two pipes in concrete screed floors.
    Cover board joints should be staggered so not to coincide with duct joints so there is no risk of the duct distorting.
    “T” joints and corners can be formed by mitering both sections of the ducting using a fine cut saw and are detailed in general fitting sheet (MBP 8067).
    Future access is simply obtained by first removing the floor covering and then un-screwing the cover board.

    Fitting Requirements

    Lay the duct on the levelled sub-floor, movement of the duct during screeding can be prevented by pinning the duct lightly to the sub-floor using masonry nails. The cover boards should then be laid in position to keep the duct straight during screeding, wet haunch either side of the duct along its length. If an expansion joint is to be used in the dry screed it should be set a minimum of 50mm away from the pipe and cable ducting.
