A newly-opened luxury hotel has had 5 & 6 core modular chains designed and made by Flex Connectors installed throughout the extensive dining and conference areas.
The Nottingham Belfry, part of the Marston Hotels group, has a total of 12 conference and banqueting rooms, plus a restaurant, brasserie and bar. NG Bailey, the contractors, chose to use flex 7 chains, as well as connection units & plugs and leads, in order to facilitate the installation of dimmable and standard fittings in the hotel’s dining areas and conference rooms, which all have solid ceilings. All the chains were bespoke and made to order to meet the specific requirements of each room. flex 7 modular chains consist of single socket outlets connected together, the required distance apart, which allows complete runs of lighting points to be installed in one piece with the minimum of plug-in connections. The chains eliminate the difficulties associated with installing lighting when ceiling void space is limited or in areas such as corridors. Chain lengths can be from 2 to 16 outlets, with up to seven poles per outlet. Contacts and outlet are rated at 16 amps.
