Many different types of cables are used in industrial plants to supply power or transmit data between individual areas such as control cabinets, control units or machines. These cable installations are often very complex and could be described as the plant’s nervous system. Professional cable routing solutions – solutions made by PFLITSCH – are indispensable in order to lay all essential cables safely, efficiently and in a transparent and space-saving way.
PFLITSCH has a groundbreaking system of industrial-scale cable routing solutions for a wide range of demanding applications. In contrast to traditional systems, our portfolio convinces with a holistic approach covering everything from cable trunking – also referred to as cable trays or cable racks – through the associated fastenings to coordinated tools and machines. We also offer a component assembly service, where we accompany your project from the initial planning all the way to its final implementation – including the supply and installation of ready-to-install cable trunking assemblies.

Our strict observance of the PFLITSCH quality management system guarantees consistently high quality. We have been certified by leading national and international testing institutes. We also have extensive equipment at our disposal in our own testing laboratory. All PFLITSCH cable routing solutions have been successfully tested in accordance with internationally recognised certifications and standards.
UL – The international test mark of Underwriters Laboratories certifies that a product has demonstrated conformity with national safety regulations in the US and Canada. No other test mark exists of comparable significance and it is indispensable if a product is intended for international use.
cUL – Underwriters Laboratories certification in accordance with Canadian national standards.
CE – The CE mark (“Conformité Européenne”) harmonises regulations and technical standards in the individual member states. Common guidelines moreover ensure that test and certification results are mutually recognised throughout the EU.
RoHS – The RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and is binding in all EU member states.
VDE – The VDE (Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies) test mark certifies the electrical safety of electrical equipment which has been newly installed, added to or modified. The electrical tests and their documentation serve customers as evidence that the electrical equipment complies with the tested safety requirements.
There are several possible criteria which you can use to determine the ideal cable routing solution. You should begin by asking yourself whether you are dealing with a standard engineering application, in which case VARiOX-Trunking is what you need. If you require a more complex trunking layout to suit your individual requirements, and especially if large numbers of cables have to be laid over long distances, then Industrial-Trunking is the system of choice. In this case, the robustness of the cable routing system is crucial. Is it essential that it can be walked on? If so, we’d recommend PFLITSCH Automobile-Trunking, for example. Another aspect to be considered is an open or closed design. Open cable routing with Wire-tray Trunking is generally preferable in areas where hygiene is critical or which are sensitive to heat. If only a small number of cables need to be routed through confined spaces, there’s no way round PIK-Trunking.
You can fasten a PFLITSCH cable routing system to the floor, the wall or the ceiling – whichever you like. A whole range of ingenious fasteners ensure that it is absolutely secure, so that it makes no difference where you attach it. Feel free to install your cable routing system wherever space permits.
All PFLITSCH cable trunking variants are designed to be compatible with any other. It is not at all uncommon in practice for you to be faced with the dilemma of meeting totally different cable routing requirements in one and the same production plant. In this case, you can combine different types of PFLITSCH cable trunking such as Industrial-Trunking, VARiOX-Trunking and PIK-Trunking without any problem – e.g. if, in the most basic type of installation, you only need to lay a small number of cables through confined spaces between machines.
Have you already completed planning of your cable laying project and thought of the potential solutions for feeding in the cables? Our Cable Glands section offers you a source of valuable inspiration and makes choosing the right solutions as easy as can be – regardless of whether we’re talking high-quality, standard cable glands or sophisticated special solutions.
