CASCO Pet recently announced it was granted a patent for its proprietary “CASCO Connector.” This unique connector safely grounds the electrical current in the event of a failure of an electrical component within the aquatic system.
Other connector systems on the market simply insulate each joint, meaning an electrical leak could result in part of the rack being ‘live.’ This poses a major health and safety hazard.
This exclusive—and now patented—connector joins together CASCO Pet’s aluminum profile systems and achieves a similar structural strength to that of a welded rack. But more importantly, it ensures the entire structure remains as a ‘connected’ frame, grounded in one place. This advancement has made for a much safer construction in an industry where the mix of water and electricity is inevitable.
“We are proud to be the only company providing a commercially available aluminum connecting system that allows for friction fit, high weight loading and electrical conductivity,” CASCO Pet Development Director Richard Burton said. “Another clear example of our commitment to innovation and to setting the highest of industry standards”
