Trunking

FREE EBOOK DOWNLOAD ►

How do you install hundreds of
metres of cables in a studio without making a horrible
tangled mess out of them? The answer is that all
cables apart from your ten or so mic cables should
be installed in trunking so that they are permanently
out of sight and out of harm’s way. Many studios
use skirting trunking where, instead of having a
solid strip of wood as a skirting board, as in flats
and houses, the skirting is hollow so that cables
can be installed inside. I would recommend that
you make a skirting trunking as shown in Figure
5.2. You won’t get past a door very easily,
but you will still probably be able to get your
cables anywhere in the room totally invisibly.

If, like in my studio, your equipment occupies
an island site in the centre of the room, then you
should pass the cables under the floorboards. This
needs a little planning at the stage of laying a
floating floor. Make sure that holes are cut in
all the right places, and poke a length of thick
string through where the cables will eventually
go. You will need some stiff wire or something similar
to do this. When you eventually come to installing
your cables, all you have to do is tape them to
the string and pull. Tape another length of string
to the cables and pull that through for when you
have more cables to install.
