E-Z Chain® - Very easy to fill - Simply push in cables

E-Z Chains® are available in two versions. In the "E" version the cable is simply laid from the outside, and in the "Z" version from the inside. The shortened installation time is one of the main features of the E-Z Chain®. Their elastic and rugged material igumid NB offers even more reasons for application: Optimum elasticity, UL94-V2 Classification and excellent suitability for clean rooms. Their one-piece design makes E-Z Chain® especially attractive in price. Due to the lower rigidity of the material, the E-Z Chain® is not suitable for applications with very high load.

New: Now as ESD option

 
E-Z Chains

The types "E" and "Z" (filling from outside and inside) can be combined with each other

 
E-Z Chains

Simply push in the cables in the e-chain® with the thumb - and it's ready!

 
E-Z chains

For the smallest bending radii: chainflex® CF98 and CF99 - 4 x d!

 
e-chain® selection aids

You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.

Installation instructions

Joining, separating and filling of the E-Z Chain®.
