Meet the Sealcon Cable Gland That Is Lightweight, Impact Resistant and Saves You Money


July 22, 2021

Sealcon has many unique cable glands but maybe none more unique than the BXA/BXI fitting. Why do they say this?

Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon materials make Sealcon’s cable gland lightweight, impact resistant and inexpensive compared to metallic cable glands with the similar approvals. Yes, there are metal cable glands that are strong but not this lightweight. With comparable cable glands costing 100% or more Sealcon BXA/BXI is ready to spec in at a huge cost savings.

Sealcon’s Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon Strain Relief is light as a feather and can take an impact that may harm a standard cable gland. Sealcon BXA/BXI were originally designed for the EX market but they have so many uses because they are lightweight and impact resistant. These cable glands are also ideally suited for moveable applications in agricultural equipment, construction equipment and portable lighting.

The approvals for these are RoHS, CSAus, ULf1, IECEx, and ATEX. With these approvals and the versatility available from being lightweight, impact resistant and the huge cost savings vs metallic glands the choice is clear. Spec in Sealcon BXA/BXI on your project and see the cost savings for yourself. The BXA/BXI cable glands come in a variety of sizes with the inserts and approvals you want with the lightness and impact resistance of Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon.
