These glands are manufactured from halogen free, PA 66 nylon with built-in strain relief blades to protect the cable. The range is waterproof and UV stabilised so that it can withstand extended exposure to the outdoors. The fluid tight seal works on a camera shutter principle that delivers IP68 rated protection to 5 bar pressure.
We make it easy to have the right gland on hand when you need it. Our premium range of nylon glands clamp to a wide range of cable diameters, so selecting and maintaining stock inventory is simple.

Our premium nylon glands do not need to be disassembled before installation. Simply insert the cable through and tighten up. The optimal gripping wrench area improves handling and the trapezoidal thread helps to prevent thread jumping. This allows for quick high torque tightening with reduced effort.
Optional neoprene seals are supplied for sealing the gland to equipment interface so that ingress protection can be maintained. Care should be taken during installation to ensure the gland is not overtightened as this can cause the seal to pop. The glands have a sealing ridge moulded into the gland base, which works effectively with equipment with built-in threads, and a flat surface where the gland beds. In these cases, the neoprene seal is not required.
It is recommended that an appropriate sealing compound is used on the body thread in areas that the IP rating is critical.
