Ok got a job to quote on part of the lighting spec'd are 6x suspended (jack chain) 1600 florries, 2 of the 6 are to be EM fittings.

The ceiling is an open joist ceiling at a 15 deg pitch thats going to be white washed.

What I cant decide on is ........ should I go for pvc conduit or FP200

Oh well back to the price list :D

In the office again.
From the info given, I`d, erm.............

On initial read, I was going to go with steptoe here. BUT

Why not use the FP?

I think, on reflection, that would be my choice. (unless there are other factors, which we`re not currently aware of......?)

IMO

 

steptoe

of course Im wrong, ask my wife™

4 core FP vs some conduit, also provides the mounts for the jack chain, and stuff either a bit of 3c+ E(properly sleeved of course!) or some singles, vs the cost of FP and time consuming install to keep it tidy and without wobbles plus clips etc.?

would it really be worth it?

I was originally looking at install time; however, when you put it like that..................You da man. Me a Guinness -head. I accept that steptoe may, in fact, have the easier install method!!!

(have a "scoob" m8) :)
I think you should dip another scoob in your Guinness & send one over for Hercules as well...

he looks mighty lonely in that stable tonight?

I think steptoes been cuttin back on his food with all of these price rises and credit crunches! :( ]:) :eek:

Morning chaps,

All well I hope?

Just to let you know I've quoted for conduit for three reasons

(1) picked the routing & it doesnt look to bad for installing.

(2) customer thinks it'll look good.

(3) I can get shot of the singles I've got stored :^O

The reason I toyed with using fp was purely a lazy thing, i didnt fancy installing conduit around all those bare joists ( i know bad of me but hey I was tired).

If a job is worth doing it's worth doing right I suppose :)
