Alcan launches MODEX(TM) Brand of Modular Wiring Systems for Commercial Construction Market
System Designed for Quick and Easy On-Site Installation
ATLANTA, GA, USA, Sept. 5 // -- Alcan Cable, a division of Alcan Inc.'s (NYSE, TSX: AL) Engineered Products group, unveiled its new MODEX(TM) brand of modular wiring systems today, designed for the commercial construction market to allow for quick and easy on-site installation.
"Through Alcan Cable's 2005 acquisition of Prewired Systems, LLC, it now offers a comprehensive range of pre-fabricated wiring solutions to the commercial construction market," said Ian Hewett, President of Alcan Cable. "MODEX(TM) wiring designs complement Alcan Cable's STABILOY(R) and NUAL(R) commercial building wire products, which positions the Company as the preferred solution provider to our customers," he added.
The MODEX(TM) product line consists of complete, custom wiring assemblies that allow for quick and easy installation resulting in total installed cost savings. Unlike the traditional pipe and wire method, Alcan's MODEX(TM) modular systems eliminate the need for the assembly of components at the job site by skilled labor. MODEX(TM) wiring assemblies are delivered in pre-packaged units to the job site when needed, which minimizes material shrinkage and handling costs.
"As the brand name implies, MODEX(TM) is a unique wiring system, representing expertise and excellence in modular design," added Peter Zobrist, Director of Business Development of Alcan Cable.
Because MODEX(TM) systems allow for clean, simple and fast installation, the contractor is paid sooner by receiving a higher percentage of draw at the rough-in stage of a project. Installation savings are maximized when MODEX(TM) systems are used in device intensive buildings with common footprints such as hotels, condominiums, apartments and hospitals. MODEX(TM) wiring assemblies are UL and C-UL listed, factory tested to ensure consistent quality of all components, and comply with the National Electrical Code and Canadian Electrical Code requirements.
