Applications Overview

We supply a comprehensive range of industrial and hazardous area cable glands (also known as cable fittings) for the smooth interconnection of cables and equipment. This covers the full spectrum of cable, with applications from general industrial types through to safety, deluge, flameproof and explosion proof cable glands.

Our cable glands are designed to provide optimal systems integrity when used alongside our cables and form an integral part of our cable solutions. Depending on the application, we offer brass cable glands as well as stainless steel, aluminium, nylon, nickel, plastic and other materials. Our cable glands are generally supplied with other cable gland accessories including locknuts, O-rings, sealing washers, earthing washers, earth tags, shrouds, clamping modules, adaptors, reducers, and blanking plugs. These are available in both metric and PG threads, as well as for armoured and non-armoured cable applications.

Our cable glands adhere to the strictest national and international specifications including NEC, CEC, ATEX and IECEx.

Cable Glands Portfolio

Some of our most popular cable glands include:

Brass Gland A2 A2 brass cable glands are suitable for use with unarmoured cables. Their outer seal grips the sheath of the cable to achieve a weatherproof seal, hence their IP68 rating.
BW AWA and SWA cable requires armoured cable glands. BW brass cable glands are suitable for use with steel wire armoured cables on indoor applications. These SWA cable glands have no loose parts in their construction which allow for easy installation.
CX CX brass cable glands are suitable for use with braided cables providing electrical continuity for the cables’ wire braid.
CXT CXT brass cable glands are suitable for use with all types of screened flexible wire braid and wire braid armoured cables. These glands provide mechanical cable retention and electrical continuity
CW CW brass cable glands are suitable for use with steel wire armoured cables on outdoor applications. Their outer seal grips the cable sheath to achieve weatherproof seal. A separate armour lock ring ensures armour clamping.
Nickel plated glands Hummel MS A standard grade nickel-plated brass gland which is IP68 rated. This waterproof cable gland's seal prevents ingress of dust and water, suitable for immersion. The Hummel MS Gland is suitable for use in environments demanding high levels of chemical and mechanical stability including measurement and control applications.
Hummel EMC Nickel plated Hummel EMC glands are ideal for watertight applications. Their high quality finish makes them suitable for plant machinery and control equipment. These are known as SY cable glands and CY cable glands, and should only be used for applications with these control cables.
Nylon glands Hummel PA A standard grade polyamide metric gland (plastic cable gland) manufactured with IP68 watertight and dust-tight rating. They are supplied with a neoprene seal to reduce the gland diameter where applied to smaller size cables.
