e-chains® are used to route cables on passenger boarding bridges, or gateways. These are moved over one another using telescopic movements under the passenger boarding bridge. They are replacing the festooning systems previously used, which have been found to be unreliable. The e-chains® are designed lying on their side, so that the system can be designed more compactly and looks even better, because the design means no cables dangle from the gangway.
