AFC Cable Systems expand EMT, Flex and Liquidtight fittings line for 2016
By Renée Francoeur
February 11, 2016 – AFC Cable Systems and sister company Kaf-Tech have expanded their line of electrical metallic tubing (EMT), flexible metal (Flex) and Liquidtight fittings for the electrical distribution industry. More than 150 new fittings items have been added, the companies say, adding that the new offering is the first phase of a multi-phase fittings product extension, with more items expected later in 2016.
New in the Liquidtight category is the malleable Liquidtight fittings with aluminum or copper grounding lugs in insulated and uninsulated versions, tubular steel Liquidtight fittings (both uninsulated and insulated), as well as combo couplings to connect Liquidtight conduit to rigid conduit.
New AC/MC cable Flex products include 90-degree saddle type connectors with insulated throats, and double bite saddle type set screw couplings. Also new are combo couplings to connect flexible metal conduit to rigid or IMC conduit.
