Rapid-Box

The housing for safely installing uncut tap conductors up to 50 mm²

Many miles of cables come together in tunnels, industrial premises and high-rise buildings. In such places, being able to install tap conductors easily and safely in order to supply power across long distances to devices such as socket outlets or lights makes a lot of economic sense. With the Rapid-Box from Spelsberg, you can now do just that both quickly and safely. 

Up to now, if you wanted to install tap cables in order to provide power for a wide range of applications, it meant a lot of effort – especially if regulations required additional components to be installed. The new Rapid-Box from Spelsberg can bring immediate benefits for such tasks in the form of significant savings on time and costs. The new housing system has been specially designed for the protected installation of uncut tap conductors up to 50 mm² (Cu).
