E4/4 cable carriers: product overview

System E4/4 cable carriers are ideal for long travels up to 1,312 feet. They also work well in free-hanging, side-mounted applications.

The side links are designed to create an overlapping, multipurpose grip, which increase stability for heavier side loads. E4/4 can withstand 50 percent greater push-pull forces than the next comparable Energy Chain® cable carrier design and is resistant to dirt, debris, and corrosion.

System E4/4 is available with special rollers for extremely long travels up to 2,625 feet and can also come in a special, conductive plastic - called igumid ESD - for use in ESD / ATEX applications.
