Expert Data Cabling Solutions

Since 2001, NM Cabling has been an approved supplier for Royal Mail. As a result we have undertaken numerous national roll out projects for them. Furthermore the ongoing relocations and maintenance to these machines has been part of that approved supplier period. As an expert data cabling company in the warehouse space we have been part of the design, scheduling and implementation of all the national roll outs in this period

National Roll Outs

There have been several different roll out projects over this period. For example the different elements of the posting process each required a nationally organised roll out. Furthermore these affected each of the Royal Mail sorting centre locations. Therefore during each roll out, a specific plan was required for surveying, planning, installation and commissioning.

To this end each machine and process required a different specification of cable. Subsequently this covered all the structured cabling elements of fibre optics, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a and coaxial cabling. In addition there were legacy systems of Thinet and Thicknet. As a result NM Cabling was required to maintain, support and replace as necessary.

Ongoing Moves, Changes and Maintenance

These roll outs have deployed certain machines and systems into Royal Mail buildings throughout the UK. Furthermore they have also been required to move either within the same building or between different buildings. Generally this is because the postal landscape has changed. Thus the structured cabling required to each of these relocations is undertaken as part of our approved installer process.

Warehouse Expert Data Cabling Installations

The majority of the installations are based within large scale and high level warehouses. Our expertise in high level installations has been critical in delivering these solutions.

In the first instance the planning process within a warehouse space varies greatly to that of  an office, school, hotel or any other similar commercial cabling project

In addition a high reliance is placed on the installation program being very flexible and the majority of times undertaken out of hours. Generally these areas have employees working underneath. Therefore the majority of installations were taken when the mail processing was at its quietest

NM Cabling adheres to all health and safety requirements, and coordinates schedules with busy warehouse operations. These may include warehouse racking and automated picking equipment, as well as the operational work of other trades in the area.
