Square D® Square-Duct Galvanized Steel Wireway


PALATINE, Ill. - December 20, 2005 - Square D® SQUARE-Duct® NEMA Type 1 galvanized steel wireway combines corrosion resistance with greater assembly ease. Because wireway sections and fittings are completely open on one side, no pulling through of wires and cables is required; they can be simply laid into the wireway without fear of damage to cable insulation.

SQUARE-Duct galvanized wireway sections come in six different square sizes, three of which are available with ½- and ¾-inch concentric knockouts. Varying straight section lengths, along with special pieces like tees, elbows, connectors and telescope fittings, add convenience.

"While SQUARE-Duct zinc-coated galvanized wireway is a good fit for any geographic area, because of its ability to mechanically protect electrical wiring, it is especially effective for construction that is occurring in corrosive atmospheres, such as coastal regions," said Ray Rechenberg, Square D Staff Marketing Specialist.

SQUARE-Duct galvanized wireway is available in 2.5 x 2.5, 4 x 4, 6 x 6, 8 x 8, 10 x 10 and 12 x 12-inch square sizes in straight section lengths ranging from 1 to 10 feet. Greater convenience during construction is provided via 90- and 45-degree elbows, 90-degree sweep elbows, and 90-degree flush tees and cross-junctions. Telescope fittings are easily adjustable to various lengths.
