MC Glide metal clad cable for easier pulling and faster installation

MC Glide metal clad cable for easier pulling. There’s a new cable in town. It’s called MC Glide™, but you’ll call it a miracle. No more backbreaking pulls. No more damaged studs. Just a smoother, faster experience.

We completely rethought the profile of MC Glide™. It’s designed to glide through metal studs and ceilings with ease, without sacrificing flexibility or strength, so you can finish the job in half the time.

MC Glide™ features:

Easier pulls. U.S. Patent Pending armor is designed to reduce friction when pulling cable through metal studs and ceilings.

No need for new tools. Works with the same tools and fittings you use with legacy cables.

Time savings. MC Glide™ can be pulled in half the time compared to traditional MC cable.

Cost reduction. Because MC Glide™ is so much easier, your team can work faster and more efficiently.

Minimize damage to studs. Less resistance means you won’t bend or knock down studs.

Construction:

  • Aluminum armor
  • UL Classified for Through-Wall Penetrations
  • MC Lite is a traditional Type MC cable containing one or more copper grounding
    conductors; the armor is not an equipment grounding means
  • Aluminum armored cables are RoHS Compliant
  • Made in USA of US and/or imported materials

Applications

Commercial, industrial, multi-residential branch circuits and feeder wiring, services for power, lighting, control and signal circuits. Exposed or concealed, fished, surface mounted, embedded in plaster, environmental air-handling spaces, open or messenger supported aerial runs, dry locations, in hazardous locations to Class I & II Div. 2 and Class III, Div. 1 & 2 (per NEC® Articles 501, 502, 503, 530), and in Places of Assembly Aluminum Interlocking Armor
