Qaddy wins Ingeniørens special award 2011
QADDY™, nkt cables’ trolley, wins the Danish Ingeniørens Special Award for its particularly outstanding design and functionality – first pronounced improvement of cable drums in 100 years.
QADDY™ is an integrated cable drum, payoff and trolley. The award is presented by The Media House Ingeniøren.
The panel of judges gave the following reasons for choosing nkt cables' cable trolley:
"This year the judges chose to give a special award for particularly outstanding design and functionality."
The prize is awarded to a cable drum for building sites. Transport and handling of cables is difficult and ergonomically inappropriate, but this is solved in a way where thorough understanding of user requirements and context-awareness is clearly exploited, including transportation on pallets, reloading between pallet and floor, manual transport on the building site down to the actual pay-off.
The solution is intuitive, simple, easy, reliable, ergonomic and quality oriented. The design work has lifted the product to much more than just a practical device. When you see the product, it is surprising that it has taken so long to reach such a unique product"
