Bridgeport's "Team Done That" Saves the Day for Electrical Contractor Faced with Having to Rewire a Ten-story Building Because of His Mistake

STRATFORD, Conn. – What if a contractor pulled datacom wire for a ten-story building but had neglected to install the required bushings for each floor’s electrical enclosures? Sounds like a lot of time and money would have been wasted, right? Not if there was a perfect solution.

Thankfully, the electrician’s distributor remembered his training session with a member of Bridgeport’s “Team Done That” that dealt with just such a predicament. The distributor’s solution for the contractor was Bridgeport’s SB-386NM -- a split, insulated, plastic bushing used where wires have already been pulled through Rigid/IMC conduit or EMT fittings. “The Bridgeport solution saved everyone a ton of time and money,” remarked Rob Riley, the “Team Done That” licensed instructor.

Bridgeport’s Mighty-Rite® Nonmetallic Split Bushings have a durable snap-on, hinged design that adjusts and aligns easier, even in tight spots, requiring no installation tools. The bushing’s unique, self-aligning latching mechanism also allows one-hand installation, so the contractor can move onto to the next job faster. The bushings are internally threaded for use with either threaded conduit or conduit fittings.

Mighty-Rite cULus Listed Nonmetallic Split Bushings are part of Bridgeport’s full range of electrical solutions that can be found in the “Wall of Orange™” – a completely stocked selection of quality electrical fittings and innovative product solutions available from major electrical distributorships across the U.S. and Canada.
