At last – every connection point exactly where you need it! The item Installation Column is the perfect solution for fitting out production areas and other workspaces with connection points for power, compressed air and network access. The stable column incorporates two large cable conduits. Sockets, switches and jacks can be simply clipped into the column openings. Once you’ve laid your cables and installed your connection points, you can then seal the open conduits with a smooth aluminium profile.
Two Line 8 grooves on each of the four sides offer ideal attachment points for light fittings, Pivot Arms and other accessories, thereby enhancing the productivity of the Installation Column in a whole variety of ways.
The column also includes two internal aluminium ducts designed to convey compressed air. The Pneumatic Connecting Set can be installed at any height on the column so that connections for compressed-air tools can be installed at the ideal position. Partition Profiles can be used to subdivide each cable conduit into two separate sections. This ensures that high and low voltage lines can be kept safely apart.
The column is held securely in place by the solid Base Plate and the versatile Ceiling Mount, which offers height adjustment options and makes it easier to introduce cables and lines.
Installation Column Profile 8 160x160 K76
Power, compressed air, data network access – all from a single, central point. The item Installation Column Profile is a robust and versatile solution for routing supply lines right up to workstations.
The sturdy Installation Column Profile features two large cable conduits that can each be divided in two using Partition Profiles K76 K to route high and low voltage lines separately in line with EN 50174.
Partition Profile K76 K
Partition Profile Clip K76 K
Partition Profile K76 K is used in Installation Column Profile 8 160x160 K76 to ensure that low-voltage cables (network, data, etc.) are routed separately to cables carrying high operating voltages. Routing the cables through separate conduits in line with the installation guidelines in EN 50174 reduces the chance of interference.
Partition Profile K76 K is clipped into place in the central groove of the installation conduit, with no need for machining work. The plastic profile creates two continuous conduits.
Additional stability is provided by Partition Profile Clip K76, which is rolled into the conduit opening and clipped into place to prevent deflection of the Partition Profile. The Clip also ensures that cables routed over long stretches cannot slip out of their section of the conduit.
Cover Profile 76 Al
Locking Clip St
This aluminium profile seals the cable conduit of Installation Column Profile 8 160x160 K76. It is held securely in dedicated grooves by Locking Clips and does not require any screw fixings. The conduit can be reopened just as easily to permit maintenance work.
Cover Profile 76 Al can be cut to length easily to make space for sockets and connections.
Note: Locking Clips are used to secure the Cover Profile in place and create an electrical contact with the lower part of the column. Each segment of the Cover Profile must be secured with at least four Locking Clips. We recommend using six Locking Clips to secure profile lengths measuring from 1000 mm to 2000 mm and at least eight for lengths of over 2000 mm. The Locking Clips ensure that the Cover Profile is earthed.
Ceiling Mount, Installation Column Profile
Base Plate, Installation Column Profile
The Ceiling Mount makes the Installation Column even more stable. It secures the column to the ceiling and is also used for height adjustment.
The Ceiling Mount for the Installation Column Profile comprises the fastening plate for the ceiling and two U-shaped profiles made from steel sheet. These profiles are anchored in the Line 8 grooves of the item Installation Column, which means that the gap between the top of the column and the ceiling can be varied. This design makes it much easier to route cables and supply lines via the ceiling.
The stable Base Plate ensures the item Installation Column is securely fixed.
Installation Column accessories
Fitting Sockets and Switches to the item Installation Column couldn’t be easier or quicker. Simply plug the desired Mounting Box for one, two or three installation elements into the cable conduit opening, insert and connect up the relevant connection and clip the Face Plate into place. That’s all it takes to get sockets, network connections and other elements ready for use.
The item accessories range covers all typical application areas – protective contact sockets, couplings for CEE three-phase plug connectors, RJ45 network connections and switches. On request, item can also provide installation elements for additional applications.
Mounting Box K76
Mounting Box for individual Sockets, Switches and connections on the item Installation Column Profile. Simply insert the front-locking Mounting Box at any point on the cable conduit.

Multi-Purpose Pliers with 90° Stop
Never again cut slanting edges – Multi-Purpose Pliers with 90° Stop can cut through rubber, plastic and even thin aluminium profiles. The integrated stop makes it easier to cut products to length at a right angle. As a result, there is usually no need to mark a cutting line. To keep edges perfect, the lateral support and anvil stop soft materials bending.
The blade is longer than on conventional multi-purpose pliers. Together with the long, sheathed grip, this ensures that a great deal of force can be applied to cut through strong materials.
