BULK: The Underground Leader
Vault

Impervious Vault System

WHAT IS BULK?

The Bulk is an upgradeable re-enterable cable management vault system series with the highest performance standards in the industry, making it the leader of the underground.

WHAT MAKES BULK DIFFERENT?

Bulk features embedded factory installed racking, which gives Bulk the ability to be upgraded to a heavy duty application by simply changing the lid. Bulk also eliminates the need for a ring and includes standard racking, which provides optimal cable organization.
