Bus Duct
In 1930's, United States started using Busduct systems for high rise construction and some production facilities. In 1950's, Europe and Japan began to use the system. In 1980, Lectro started its first production from the latest design of the most famous companies among the world. Lectro is the pioneer in Busduct manufacturing in Africa and the Middle East.


Lectro's bus duct has been completely type tested at KEMA testing facility in the Neatherlands.


What is Bus duct?

Busduct is an economical, modem method for distributing electricity. It is a prefabricated insulated aluminum or copper conductor enclosed in a metallic housing.

Using large cables for power distribution in high rise buildings, industrial plants and commercial markets can cause difficulties when running the cables into cable trays or ducts or when there is a need for changes or extensions. These problems are easily overcome using Bus duct systems instead of cables.

The Busduct system has a lot of outstanding features compared with conventional cable wiring.


Bus duct vs cable and trays

There are many advantages of bus duct over cables and trays in distribution systems:
  • Less man hours for installation
    Bus ducts are built to fit customer specific layout needs. It is delivered to the site ready for installation. Bus ducts installation needs only about 40 % of the labor required to install cables and trays. All parts of the installation can be easily mounted and demounted.
  • Compact size
    Due to its sandwich design, bus ducts have very compact cross sectional sizes and they occupy far less space compared with multiple cables.
  • Reusable, expandable and flexible
    As distribution may need changes, existing" bus duct runs can be easily relocated or extended by adding new sections. System components can be added, removed or relocated after initial installation.

    The power supply can be adapted to different production processes simply by relocating the tap-off Units.
  • Safe and versatile design
    Lectro bus ducts meets the requirements of IEC 439-2. The conductors are totally enclosed in a non ventilated aluminum housing which provides one of the highest short circuit ratings-in. the industry today. All bus plugs are polarized to prevent improper installation.
  • Lower installation cost
    The saving in labor can generate a total installation cost reduction of as much-as 40% compared Cables.
  • Competitive at any rating
    When reviewing material cost alone, bus duct may cost more than cables and trays. However, it Is the reduction in the number of man hours required for installation that provides a significantly lower installation cost Also the cable minimum curvature radius makes the bus duct path less by 5-20% for runs with many elbows.
  • Quick delivery
    Lectro lead fames are more competitive than ever and Lectro can handle the quickest delivery to meet the project requirement.
  • Easy ordering
    Accurate layout can be done quickly with the help of Lectro group. Just provide the equipment position, dimension and general layout and Lectro will give detailed aoorival drawings within one week receiving the order
  • Modern outlook
    Other than its functional advantages Busduct system creates a modern view in buildings and factories where it is used.
