AMBIENTRACK ? PRETTY FLEXIBLE
They have been doing the rounds in offices and administrative buildings for years: cable ducts ? for
the flexible installation of power and data lines. In private residences, however, flush-mounted
installations still dominate. Although conventional cable ducts are flexible, if not aesthetically
pleasing, flush mounted installation is highly inflexible and is expensive in the long-run.
For who knows while their house is being built, where plugs, switches and connections will be needed once
everything is finished? When the kids grow up and their bedrooms become home offices, when people get
older and want automatic shutters or when multimedia enthusiasts suddenly want a new HiFi system, conventional
flush-mounted installation requires the walls to be opened up for new wiring to be painstakingly re-laid.
Even relatively minor changes, such as the re-positioning of a plug socket can turn out very expensive.
The long-term thinking homeowner decides on the elegant cable conduits of AmbienTrack right from the beginning.
AmbienTrack combines the flexibility of conventional cable conduits with the aesthetics of a design object.
First and foremost AmbienTrack enables you to furnish the building with a simple, universal planning concept
for all future requirements, without having to know at the time of installation, what these requirements
might be. A basic installation consisting of one power and two to three data lines is carried out by the
distributor. These data lines are fitted into the ceiling, floor and walls of the concerned rooms where they
are finally connected to the wall or corner pillars. AmbienTrack ensures flexible extension of wiring within rooms.
The cable ducts, made from elegant aluminium, provide sufficient room for installing switches, sensors,
plug sockets, telephone and computer connections, electrical appliances, AmbienArt lighting components and
even loudspeakers. Anyone wishing to carry out changes at a later date need only remove the cover, insert
the new components and change a few panels ? no jackhammers or clouds of dust required!
What?s more: AmbienTrack is also suitable for renovating old houses that are no longer equipped
to meet future demands, quickly and with ease.
THE RESULTS ARE PLAIN TO SEE
Cable ducts made from aluminium? How much does that cost? Not as much as a simple comparison would lead you to
believe. The initial installation of AmbienTrack may well cost more when compared to a conventional installation
in certain circumstances. However small modifications soon compensate for this difference. Initial costs are
quickly made up for when laying new wires or when retrofitting or re-positioning plug sockets. When the time
comes to make new and bigger changes, like introducing a new flatscreen TV, extra switches or wall lamps,
AmbienTrack is not only quicker and easier to reconfigure, but also up to 30% cheaper than conventional
flush-mounted installation. The same is true when renovating electrical installations in old buildings.
In short: the long-term thinker opts for AmbienTrack from the start.
And another thing: for anyone wishing to equip their home with intelligent building automation technology ?
with AmbienTrack many control components can be built into the AmbienTrack ducts and can therefore be
remotely spread out throughout the building. The total cabling requirements are thus reduced, as the switch
groups are always near the switch board. There are no long wiring sections, no piles of wires around the
switch board ? you have everything at your disposal and have access to the entire control electronics via
AmbienTrack. It doesn?t get any easier than this.
Fact: the more technical modifications carried out as time goes on and the more connections
and new plug sockets installed, the more money you save with AmbienTrack.
