Guide Troughs Support e-chain® Cable Carriers Traveling Long Distances

Browse Guide Troughs

Our galvanized steel and aluminum guide troughs are designed to support the smooth, low-friction operation of e-chain® cable carriers for up to 39 feet. They’re designed with built-in glide bars made of extremely abrasion-resistant plastic to reduce the amount of chain and cable needed for a full system. To achieve this, we establish a center mounting point to allow the e-chain® to glide over itself during the first half of travel and then over the glide bars for the second half.
