O-Z Gedney tamper-proof AXB expansion fitting
By Anthony Capkun
O-Z/Gedney says its new AXB expansion fitting is the ideal connecting solution for long conduit runs installed in areas subject to vandalism, theft, harsh weather and wide temperature variations. It permits linear movement in conduit runs caused by thermal expansion, therefore preventing conduit buckling or disconnection; its internal bonding jumper, meantime, aids installation and maintenance by eliminating the need for an external jumper that could corrode or be tampered with. The corrosion-resistant, hot-dipped galvanized outer casing is rated watertight. No disassembly is required during installation, so there are no parts to lose and fewer tools are needed. The outer casing slides open to allow fast inspections of the jumper while in the field.
