Introducing Quick-Latch for Wire Baskets

Cope® is excited to announce the new Quick-Latch™ for wire baskets. This new product is designed to reduce labor in the field. Though the typical Cope wire basket design comes with a pre-attached splice plate, creating multiple field cuts or manufacturing fittings can leave perfectly usable pieces of wire basket without any splice bar. Using the Quick-Latch is a great way to utilize these pieces and eliminate cost, labor, and time when splicing those parts together.

Why Choose Gatorshield® over Pre-Galvanized Tubing?

Gatorshield® by Allied Tube & Conduit® and pre-galvanized tube are two of the most common types of galvanized tube used in the mechanical industry. Gatorshield offers significant advantages over pre-galvanized tube because of our Flo-Coat® technology. It’s all about the process and we’d like to show you how it differs.

NSF Certification and Atkore’s PVC Brands

Atkore’s PVC brands manufacture a series of product lines for use in non-electrical applications, which often require certification by the National Sanitation Foundation.

Choosing a product certified by NSF lets you know the company complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn the NSF certification.
