Contractors have been constantly asking about it and after a development process of some 18 months, Scolmore Group has delivered on its promise to bring to market an extensive collection of premium wiring accessories that is aimed at the high end sector of the electrical accessories industry. The new Deco Plus range totals more than 800 products and builds on the huge success of Scolmore’s classic Deco range – fi rst launched in 2003 – and introduces smooth, contemporary curves that will have wide ranging appeal with contractors, specifi ers and end users alike. It has been just two months since the offi cial launch and the range has already garnered a very positive response from the industry. Matthew Scott is procurement manager with Imtech Engineering Services, one of the largest independent technical service providers in the UK and Ireland, working on large scale projects across a range of sectors, including commercial, residential, education, government and public buildings, health and social care, leisure and retail. He has welcomed the introduction of Scolmore’s new range, which he says brings more options for him to deliver to clients. Matthew says, ‘We have long Xxxx been associated with Scolmore and are familiar with the quality and breadth of their range of wiring accessory products. The new Deco plus range complements the existing wiring accessory portfolio really well. With its aesthetically pleasing curved edges, this collection completes the offering from Scolmore NEW WIRE BASKET at the premium end of the decorative accessories market. ‘The new range still offers modularity – which is a key attribute and a main consideration for us – and there is also a great range of fi nishes to choose from. This gives Imtech more great options to offer our clients, which is always a positive thing.’ FLEX RESISTANT For super-quick installation Fast Coupling Wire Basket is easy to install using the integral couplers to connect the sections in just 4 seconds.
