E-Z Chain®: simply push in cables for quick installation

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.

E-Z Chain: "E" and "Z" makes it "Easy"

  • Easily fillable from the inside (Z version) and outside (E version)
  • Quicker filling, access to cables without opening or closing of the lids
  • Can be put together or taken apart at "any point"
  • Cost-effective, one-piece chain
  • Dirt-proof outer contour
  • Mounting brackets with integrated strain relief available
  • Limited torsional movement possible
  • Available with interior separation (many types)
  • Flammability class UL94-V2
  • Suitable for clean room applications

New: Now as ESD option
