In addition, round hole and slotted wiring ducts facilitate easy entry and exit of cables in applications that require breakouts in wire routing. Solid wall wiring duct is used for sensitive cables that need to be protected from dust, debris and other outside contaminants that threaten the cable integrity. Wiring ducts are are also available in rigid or flexible styles.
