Reimax’s retail product family is complemented by socket-spiral cables suitable for the Winsta connector system. They are designed for efficient power distribution in stores and offices. The spiral can be used for many applications and purposes, and when hung from the ceiling, the spiral does not get in the way, thus significantly increasing comfort and safety.
There is a choice of PUR or PVC cable with several different socket options. Cable selection is affected by operating conditions. Sturdy PUR withstands harsh conditions and is oil and chemical resistant. In addition, the PUR cables are cut resistant and can handle high mechanical wear.
Special PVC, on the other hand, is a cost-effective solution for interiors where the comfort and safety provided by the spiral is needed. The cable colors are black and orange with the PUR sheath and white with the PVC sheath.
