MITRE BOX, FOR 100, 220, 300mm DUCT

Part Number: TC1279-MITRE


This mitre box is a simple mechanical means of preparing a shortened length of 300, 220, 100 or 100 x 50mm duct for connection to another standard part. e.g. elbow, cross connector, etc. The mitre box ensures that a true 90-degree cut is achieved with a panel saw (Part No: 100 x 060) on each of these duct sizes.

MITRE BOX, FOR 30, 50mm DUCT

Part Number TC1279-118-07


This mitre box is a simple mechanical means of preparing a shortened length of 30 and 50mm duct for connection to another standard part. e.g. elbow, cross connector, etc. The mitre box ensures that a true 90 degree cut is achieved with a panel saw (Part No: 100 x 060) on each of these duct sizes.

 

FIBRE SPREADER AND PROTECTOR

Part Number: TC1279-50-3


The Fibre Spreader/Protector physically separates installed optical fibre cords in a duct, as the duct wall is being prepared to install a new drop-off. This item protects installed optical fibre cords from damage during the cut-out operation. The Fibre Spreader/Protector should be used whenever the side of a duct system, housing optical fibre cords, is being prepared for a new drop-off installation.

CUT OUT JIG

Part Number: TC1279-483A


This Cut Out Jig is used to quickly and neatly prepare the side of a new duct length, to make a cut out for quickly installing a drop-off or a break-out guide (ie an outlet trumpet). The Jig is centrally located about a centre mark on the top of the duct edge. it is clamped in position, and two quick cuts are made using a hand saw (Part No: 100 x 060 – available separately) to the full depth of the marked slots for the item to be installed. Next a Stanley knife is run ( two or three times) along the bottom of the Jig’s straight edge, between saw cuts, to make a straight longitudinal cut in the ducts side. The Cut Out Jig is unclamped and removed from the duct, and the prepared piece of duct is removed using light finger pressure. The Stanley knife is used to clean the ducts edges, and the nominated item is quickly and simply fitted into the prepared cut out.

CUT OUT TOOL

Part Number: TC1279-231


Cut out tools are used to cut notches in the side of the duct to accommodate drop-outs. They are supplied with a fibre spreader to protect previously installed fibres when using the tools.

DUCT SPILL OUT, INSTALLATION KIT

Part number: TC1279-604KIT


This kit of two items in used to mark the central hole position, using template, on the side of the duct and using a permanent marker pen. Then using the 60mm dia hole saw with 6.3mm dia guiding drill, a 60mm dia hole is cut into the side of the duct, into the 60mm dia hole optic fibre cord side spill outs (ie Drop-Off’s) can be fitted.

There are straight outlet set (Part number TC1279-602A) or 90 degree Up/Down/Left/Right outlet set (part number TC1279-609A).

HYDRAULIC HAND HELD SLOTTING TOOL

Part number: TC1279-501KIT


The hydraulic hand held duct slotting tool is a means of making duct end slots, easily, simply and quickly ie less than 1 minute to make a slot. The hydraulic tool exerts a force of 5 tonnes, and the jaws are made of hardened carbon steel, for a long service life. To operate, place tool on duct side or end, tighten side release valve knob, pump tool gently, until a slot is made. Release valve knob by unscrewing. Push jaw back using front return handle. Slots for joiners are made repeatedly, quickly and accurately. The slotting tool cuts a slot in the duct end to suit a standard connector (Part No’s. TC1279-226, TC1279-25, TC1279-27 & TC1279-320KIT). The kit is also provided with a plastic tool box, for transport.

FOOT OPERATED SLOTTING TOOL

Part number: TC1279-500KIT


The foot operated duct slotting tool is a means of making duct end slots, easily, accurately and quickly ie less than 1 minute to slot one end of a duct. By using a foot operated system a small effort is required to exert the large force necessary to make a slot. Both hands are free to hold the duct. The jaws are made of hardened carbon steel, for a long service life. To operate, place duct side or end, within the tools cutting guides, hold duct down flush with top face of tool, and press foot operated lever, until a slot is made. Release the slotting punch, using the foot operated release pedal. Remove and re-position duct for next slot. The slotting tool cuts a slot in the duct end to suit a standard joiner (Part No’s. TC1279-25, TC1279-27 & TC1279-320KIT); available separately. The kit includes one foot operated slotting tool and a metal tool box, for storage and transport, c/w a foam insert.

SIDE SLOTTING TOOL

The side slotting tools are used to make slots in the bottom and both sides at the end/s of duct.

This process is a simple mechanical means of preparing a length of duct for connection to another standard part: e.g. elbow, cross connector, tees,  adapter assembly, duct end or drop-offs, etc.
