AFC Cable Systems® New Cable Offering Improves Cable Pulling Experience

MC Glide™ can be pulled more efficiently compared to traditional MC cable

New Bedford, MA (October 8, 2020) - AFC Cable Systems®, part of Atkore, announces a revolutionary new innovation in cable installation. Historically, pulling cable has been slow, noisy, back-breaking work, but MC Glide™ is a new cable that glides through metal studs and ceilings offering a smoother, faster, quieter experience.


AFC Cable Systems reexamined legacy MC cables to develop MC Glide's™ armor (U.S. Patent Pending). Designed to reduce friction and move easily without sacrificing flexibility and strength, MC Glide's smooth profile provides less resistance, allowing installers to work faster and more efficiently with less chance of damaging studs, saving time and labor costs compared to legacy MC Cable.

MC Glide™ is also compatible with the installers' current tools and fittings.
