FAQ-Frequently Asked Questions

  • Corrugated hose: 
    Stretches greatly under tensile load. The cables in the corrugated hose cannot elongate in the same ratio and are therefore damaged.
  • triflex® R:
    Stretches only minimally under tensile load. No additional load for the cables
  • Corrugated hose: 
    It offers no minimum bend radius
  • triflex® R: 
    Offers a bend radius of between 50 to 182mm depending on the triflex size.
  • Corrugated hose
    Damage to the corrugated hose due to stresses and torsional movement can cause damage to the cables
  • triflex® R: 
    The stop-dogs prevent the e-chain from bending too tightly.
  • Corrugated hose: 
    None or limited torsion occurs
  • triflex® R: 7-12.5° torsion angle per chain link
    Up to 900° torsion angle for one metre (example: TRC/TRE.40)
  • Corrugated hose: 
    If the plug is not too large, the cable can be pushed through from the ends.
  • triflex® R: With TRE, TRL, TRLF and TRCF, cables with plugs can be pressed in externally.
  • Corrugated hose: 
    Can be shortened only with tools (knives). This can pose health and safety risks and can damage cables.
  • triflex® R: 
    Length is adjustable with and without tools being required. This is dependant on which triflex range.
    Due to the moduar design, the triflex can be lengthened and shortened by fitting/ removing chain links to suit. This cannot be done with a corrugated hose.
  • Corrugated hose: 
    Can be installed via the hose ends only.
  • triflex® R: Can be installed via the e-chain ends or due to the design of the TRE, TRL and TRCF, the installing of cables/services can be implemented externally.
