Bridgeport Fittings Solves a Solar Installation Problem with New Fitting

Press release date: Aug 25, 2016

Mighty-Seal® 250-RT2XL easily tackles thick-wall combiner boxes

STRATFORD, Conn. – One of the issues faced by contractors on solar installation projects is that many non-metallic combiner boxes have a wall thickness in excess of 3/8 inches leaving not enough threads on raintight connectors to attach to these thicker walls.

But now, using Bridgeport’s Mighty-Seal 250-RT2XL fittings, contractors will have enough threads on their raintight connectors to attach to these thicker walls and still have enough threads left over for a grounding bushing, if required.

Bridgeport Fittings’ new extra-long, raintight connectors are available in ½”, ¾” and 1” trade sizes. (To view this solution, visit www.bptfittings.com and enter part number 252-RT2XL.)
