Separation of emergency circuits in Canalis KBA / KBB busways

Example: emergency or fire alert circuit separated from main circuit
 
The Canalis KBA and KBB are made of 1 metallic casing, in which the circuits are installed. One of the advantages of this architecture is to provide a good protection against external aggressions.
In some countries the local regulations are requiring to have a physical separation between the main circuit and the emergency circuit. Our KBB product are equipped with 2 electrical circuits, but they are in the same volume, without any physical separation between the 2 circuits so it don’t fit.

Depending the local standard, it's often possible to install one of the 2 circuits by installing a second tray made of optional cable duct or brackets.
