Utility supplies: The Roxtec Transit Designer is a free, web-based tool that simplifies both product selection according to needs and requirements and the process of designing, purchasing and installing cable and pipe transits.

Giuseppe Principato is an instrument designer in Italy -­ and one of thousands of designers and engineers in more than 80 countries who have already discovered the benefits of the new design software. He works with tasks such as developing material requisitions for bulk materials as well as with preparing cable routing, cable entries, wiring, installation details and job specifications.

“I use the Roxtec Transit Designer every time a multi-cable transit is accepted or requested by our customer,” he says. “It is easy to use and understand, and it helps me save time. You can customize cable transits and easily change the arrangement of the transit whenever you need.”

The Roxtec Transit Designer is available free online and on touch screen devices. It helps designers and engineers select the right sealing solution. They can filter by application, certificate and sealing requirements. It saves time and money and can speed up the entire process and design a transit in minutes.

It also reduces risk. The project team gets it all right from the start ­ 3D models, drawings, material lists and installation instructions.

Simple enough that designers just enter cable schedule, sealing requirements and installation preferences -­ and the tool generates documents such as bill of materials and CAD drawings. They can share their work with project teams anywhere in the world. And the chat function offers them instant access to the Roxtec expertise.
