DUCKT-STRIP® The only mini-split cable with
Duckt-Strip® with Rip-n-Strip™ technology is
new kind of mini-split cable that provides the installer
with everything they need in one cable. Meeting all of the
approvals & qualifications for a mini-split cable, The Duckt-Strip®
cable is preferred by Electrical Inspectors. The
Rip-N-Strip™ technology gives the installer the ability to
quickly strip the wire without using strippers, knives, or
cutters. This makes the process faster, safer, and more
cost-effective in the long run.
Contractors will enjoy knowing
that their mini-split installation already meets code with
the all-in-one Duckt-Strip® cable. They’ll enjoy saving
money on the less time it takes to run Duckt-Strip® versus
traditional wiring. And they’ll be glad they’re not paying
medical expenses for cuts and gouges that occur when
stripping traditional wire.
