Product Information


Cable glands are used to ensure, earth continuity, avoid cable being twisted or pulled and provide an airtight seal against dust or moisture. Hazardous area cable glands are designed to terminate cables into flameproof or increased safety equipment in hazardous areas. They provide a weather and gas-proof sealed connection between cable and equipment.

Thread conversion reducers and adaptors offer a flexible solution where the correct gland size differs from the connection thread and available in various thread pitches and material to compliment the gland type that meets your specification.

Cable gland fittings (cord grip, cable strain relief, cable connector or cable fitting) are used to attach and secure the end of an electrical cable to the equipment. MacLean Electrical can provide a gland-fit chart to cross reference the dimensions of the cable we supply against the range of acceptance criteria of the gland type selected. This not only guarantees your gland will fit your cable accurately and safely, but also avoids schedule delays and subsequent costs associated with last minute gland changes during critical stages of installation. We can also provide product awareness training in our in-house training facility.

Within our dedicated in-house training facility, we can arrange extensive product awareness training sessions with manufacturers to cover any of the cable types or glands we supply. Training includes familiarity and understanding of:

  • the protection concept of the product
  • the importance of correct installation
  • general familiarity with installation practices
  • followed by a demonstration on how the cable gland is installed
