2. Cold Shrink Cable Terminations - Our Cold Shrink Cable Terminations are suitable for 1 & 3 Core Polymeric Insulated (XLPE/ EPR) Cables up to 36kV. They can be used with both compression and mechanical type connectors.

3. Premoulded (Push On/Slip On) Cable Terminations - These termination kits go well with all types of single and three core Polymeric (XLPE/EPR) Insulated cables. Suitable for both compression and mechanical type lugs, these terminations can fit various cable cross sections up to 400mm2.

4. Screened separable connectors - These are touchproof connectors used for connecting single and three core polymeric cables to medium voltage switchgear, RMU and other equipment using bushings type "C" specified for 630A, 800A. 1250A up to 42kV. The connectors are highly durable as they are made of highly modified EPDM rubber. The touchproof outer conductive screen connected to earth gives them a high level of protection.

5. Heat Shrink Cable Joints - We have high quality and durable armoured and unarmoured heat shrink cable joints that are suitable for Polymeric (XLPE, PVC, EPR) Cables up to 72.5KV. Other products in this category include Heat Shrink Straight through joints suitable for XLPE/EPR/PVC insulated cables up to 66kV, Heat Shrink Straight through transition joints up to 36kV, Heat Shrink Straight through joints suitable for PILC Cables up to 36kV, Heat Shrink Trifurcating Cable joint up to 36kV, Heat Shrink Straight through Joint suitable for 1 Core Aerial Bunched (ABC) cables up to 36kV.

6. Cold Shrink Cable Straight Joints - These cold shrink straight joints are perfect for connecting either single or three core cables designed with polymeric (XLPE or EPR) insulation. They are made of silicon rubber material which offers great electrical insulation and weathering properties, and their use is suitable for both compression and mechanical type connectors.

7. Pre-moulded Cable Joints - Our Premoulded (Push On/Slip On) Cable Joint Kits are suitable for all types of single and three core Polymeric (XLPE/EPR) Insulated cables. They can be used with various cable cross sections up to 400mm2 and are fit for both compression and mechanical type connectors. Their one piece design makes them really easy to install, and they come with integrated stress control arrangements.
