SWA is so confident in the unbeatable combination of speedy installation, advanced specification and low cost offered by its STORM range it predicts that someday conventional glands may be rendered obsolete.
Bringing together advanced design and ultra-modern materials in one elegant, compact solution, SWA have taken a major leap forward in armoured cable glands design. Every aspect of the conventional cable gland has been re-thought and, where necessary, re-engineered. STORM products can offer extended protection standards – up to IP68, rated as “dust- tight” and protected against complete, prolonged submersion in water.
The entire range features a non-metallic outer assembly (cap, upper and lower body) enclosing the gland’s brass clamping ring and inner body, as well as the O rings and gasket made from oil-resistant nitrile rubber.
The use of advanced polyamide for those outer components is responsible for many of the revolutionary advances delivered by the glands, including their enhanced durability, ease of installation and improved safety levels.
Additionally, the UV-stabilised glands offer improved ingress protection; they can be used from 20 degrees to over 80 degrees and do not emit toxic gases in the event of fire. The STORM range offers two options to suit a variety of needs: a standard version, which features locknut and earth tag and the popular Tauras version, with the award-winning EarthingNutTM and crimp lugs. The glands are available in thread sizes from 20mm to 32mm and are suitable for use with many different types of cable.
