Evening all. I need to source some trunking for a job and my wholesaler is showing me every type of trunking known to man except the one I want. The type I'm after is usually found on the back of desks. It is flat on the back and base but triangular in shape. I am going to flip it upside down and hang it under a long run of kitchen cupboards to keep the set up flexible. The bottom of the sockets will be nearer the wall if that makes sense!! If anyone could throw me a bone on this I'd be grateful as I fear I may attack the wholesaler with a T section If he doesnt find it. Cheers, Dave

Try making enquires reference 'bench trunking' - although be warned, it often isn't cheap!

Like the idea for kitchens.

Given the cost of XX amount of time chasing and sinking sockets and cable, plus the amount of time doing the former gives a tiler grief, I think the idea's a good 'un..

Plus you can say: 'Now you've seen the kitchen built and changed your mind three times from initial plan - where exactly do you want your sockets, ma'am?'

Thanks for the links and advice chaps. I am actually thinking about doing this in my own kitchen to be honest. The guy who suggested it thought it was the most flexible option. I think the time I will save is worth it. Tis the future !!

Hiya Dave,
I like the sound of this so could you post a picture here when you have done it please.
Falcon are quite good and do alsorts of trunking so try this link. Even though the angled trunking isnt shown, I am sure they do it so you may need to phone them.
Regards
Antric
