Abstract

The wiring duct (left drawing) accommodates a wide range of cable sizes and eliminates the necessity for a large inventory of fixed sized ducts. The upper portion of the duct has two sections 1 and 2. The lower portion of the duct has two sections 3 and 4. The sections 2 and 4 are provided with slots 5 and 6 which permit them to be moved laterally with respect to their companion sections. The lower sections fit into channels indicated by the arrows 7 and 8. The sections are maintained in a desired position by screws 9 and 10.

Wiring Ducts

The wiring duct (left drawing) accommodates a wide range of cable sizes and eliminates the necessity for a large inventory of fixed sized ducts. The upper portion of the duct has two sections 1 and 2. The lower portion of the duct has two sections 3 and 4. The sections 2 and 4 are provided with slots 5 and 6 which permit them to be moved laterally with respect to their companion sections. The lower sections fit into channels indicated by the arrows 7 and 8. The sections are maintained in a desired position by screws 9 and 10.

Easier positioning in tight quarters and elimination of unnecessary duct material are advantages of the duct shown in the right drawing. The upper portion of this duct has two sections 11 and 12. The lower portion has two sections 13 and 14. The lower portion fits into channels in the upper portion as indicated by arrows 15 and 16. This duct is provided in a number of basic heights, as desired. The sections 11 and 14 have extensions 17 and 18 which represent a desired minimum width for a selected basic height. The sections 12 and 13 have extensions 19 and 20 which represent the maximum desired width for a selected basic height. The sections 12 and 13 have elongated slots 21 and 22, respectively. They are also scored at regular intervals as indicated by the dashed lines 23 and 24. The scoring facilitates cutting excessive material from the sections 12 and 13 for the smaller widths, so that the overall width of the duct correspond...
