Designed for use in areas where serious corrosion problems exist. Suitable for use outdoors, or in dairies, breweries, petrochemical plants, food processing plants, sewage plants, water treatment plants, packing plants, and similar installations. This design allows for wire and cable to be installed by “laying-in” rather than by pulling through the wire. A complete selection of sections and ings is available in 4X4, 6×6, 8×8, 10×10, and 12×12 sizes.
