MaxCell adds riser-rated product to textile innerduct line

September 13, 2006 -- The Riser MaxCell flexible innerduct is designed for effective cable and fiber-optic management within interior raceways, and for installation in vertical runs or shafts.

September 13, 2006 -- MaxCell, a provider of flexible, multi-celled, textile innerduct systems, has announced the addition of its Riser MaxCell, a fire resistant product that meets the requirements of many fire safety codes.

The company says the specially-engineered flexible innerduct was designed for effective cable and fiber-optic management within interior raceways, and for installation in vertical runs or shafts.

The Riser MaxCell is compliant with UL Standard 2024A ["Optical Fiber Cable Routing Assemblies – Test for Flame Propagation (Riser")]. For use in a variety of inside-building applications, the product provides dedicated pathways in congested riser ducts and allows for future expansion, benefits that the company contends can cut costs and speed up project completion time.

"Riser MaxCell provides more flexibility in network applications for new construction. It's lightweight and compact, so it's easy for individuals to handle, as well as install," comments John Hepfinger, market manager for MaxCell. "Additionally, the ease of use allows for less disruption in the workplace during building expansion or retrofit projects."

The Riser MaxCell is available in micro, 2-inch, 3-inch, and 4-inch versions; all versions come with pre-installed pulling tapes.

"We are continuing to add to MaxCell's product line to meet the diverse requirements of today's complex networks," continues Hepfinger. "We are happy to provide Riser MaxCell and Plenum MaxCell to our customers who need these products to comply with local building codes."
