If you think pulling cable is about as painful as pulling teeth, this will put a smile on your face. MC Glide™ is the new, completely redesigned cable that makes pulling cable a breeze. It slides through metal studs and ceilings easily for faster, quieter pulls.

why choose MC MC GLIDE™?

  • Make pulls easier. U.S. Patented armor reduces fatigue when you’re pulling cable through metal studs and ceilings.
  • Use your existing tools. Works with the same tools, fittings, and supports as traditional cable.
  • Save time and money. Because it’s so much easier, your team will work faster and more efficiently.
  • Minimize damage to studs. Less resistance means you won’t bend or knock down studs.

FrequentLy asked questions

Q: What is MC Glide™ and why would I try it?   

A: This MC Cable has a unique armor profile, that allows for a faster, easier, smoother, and quieter installation; when pulling interlocked armored cable through metal studs and ceilings.  

Q: Is MC Glide™ flexible?   

A: Absolutely.  MC Glide meets the flexibility requirements of UL 1569. You should find MC Glide™ to be equal to or more flexible than MC Lite®.

Q: Does the new profile improve cable bend memory?   

A: Yes. The profile of MC Glide tends to lay flatter than Legacy MC Cable; notably reducing curling or bend memory issues  

Q: Can you pull MC Glide in either direction?   

A: No.  MC Glide, as with Legacy MC Lite® has a preferred direction for pulling, but MC Glide is easier to pull in both directions. Note: MC Glide coils should be pulled from the center of the coil and MC Glide reels are reverse wound.  

Q: Is a special tool required to cut MC Glide?   

A: No. MC Glide’s™ armor is easily cut with any cable handheld rotary cutter.  

Q: Will MC Glide work with auto cutting machines?   

A: Yes. MC Glide has been tried on several types of auto cutting machines with the same performance as legacy MC Lite® cables.  

Q: Is the conductor bundle under the MC Glide armor the same as legacy MC Lite®?   

A: Yes. You will cut, strip, and terminate as with MC Lite® 

Q: Are special fittings required for MC Glide?  

A: No. Use the same UL listed MC Cable connectors you prefer for legacy MC Lite®. No special fitting requirements.  

Q: Are anti-short bushings required with MC Glide?   

A: No. Anti-short bushings are not required with any style MC Cable per NEC 330. 

Q: Is MC Glide available in MC Tuff® lightweight steel armor?  

A: No. Currently, aluminum armor only; but we are working to add lightweight steel to the MC Glide offering.  

Q: Does MC Glide have phase & circuit ID on the armor?   

A: No. Presently, MC Glide™ does not have ColorSpec® or ColorTrak® phase and circuit ID.  

Q: Is MC Glide readily available?   

A: Yes, MC Glide is readily available at both major distribution facilities, in New Bedford, MA and Chino, CA.  

Q: MC Glide is available in what sizes?  

A: Our introductory sizes are 12/2 and 12/3 in solid and stranded 250’coils/1000’reels, including 120v and 277v conductor colors.
