Easily Install Cables from Inner or Outer Radius

E-Z chains are your solution for easy, quick and efficient cable installation. These one-piece energy chains are designed with split crossbars on either the outer radius (E version) or inner radius (Z version), allowing you to simply push cables through, and are made out of our flexible igumid NB material that comes with a UL94-V2 flammability rating. E-Z chains range from 5mm to 48.5mm of inner height and are available with multiple internal cavities to keep cable packages separated if needed. Due to the lower rigidity of the material, E-Z chains are not suitable for applications with very high loads.
  • Easy and quick to fill from the outside (E version) or inside (Z version)
  • Access to cables without opening or closing lids
  • Cost-effective, one-piece design
  • Dirt-resistant outer contour
  • UL94-V2 flammability rating
  • 5mm to 48.5mm of inner height
