The modular design of igus® Energy Chains® facilitates this space-saving and unconventional solution. For modern platform technology, such as performance stages, a variety of conduits which adjust the stage height must be accommodated. Lack of space almost invariably presents particular difficulties. The photo below shows an Energy Chain® in a "Zig-Zag" configuration. The unextended Energy Chain® is stored in a "basket" underneath the stage. If the stage is raised, the Energy Chain® unfolds, generating little to no noise. This construction is possible with System E4/4, E4/0 E- Chains® as well as many other types. Please consult igus® for these kinds of applications.
