Product Information


Cable glands are essential for ensuring earth continuity, preventing cables from being twisted or pulled, and providing an airtight seal against dust and moisture. In hazardous areas, cable glands are specially designed to terminate cables in flameproof or increased safety equipment, ensuring a weatherproof and gas-tight connection between the cable and the equipment.

Thread conversion reducers and adaptors offer a flexible solution when the gland size doesn't match the connection thread. They're available in various thread pitches and materials, complementing the gland type that aligns with your specifications.

Cable gland fittings also known as cord grips, cable strain reliefs, cable connectors or cable fittings, securely attach the end of an electrical cable to the equipment. At MacLean Electrical, we offer a gland-fit chart to cross-reference the cable dimensions we supply with the acceptance criteria of your selected gland type. This ensures your gland fits your cable safely and accurately, helping avoid delays and extra costs that can arise from last-minute gland changes during vital installation phases.
