Ultimate protection: the ShieldGLAND from WISKA

For many years now WISKA’s iconic COMBI Junction Box has been used with BW/CW glands for terminating SWA cables under the British Standard BS 6121.

These glands have a limiting IP rating as standard, require the use of a shroud, and o­ften are used with an earth tag (banjo). The use of the earth tag o­ften results in the integratory of the junction box being damaged to ensure earth continuity.

As a cable gland expert, WISKA have been developing a superior solution for these types of installations. Introducing the ShieldGLAND, an IP68 plastic/brass hybrid cable gland suitable for armoured and SY cables. Available in M20S, M20L, M25 and M32 sizes. Superior protection, easy to use and works seamlessly with our COMBI junction box series.

Why is the ShieldGLAND better?

The ShieldGLAND replaces the use of the conventional BW/CW gland for cable termination.

Firstly, the ShieldGLAND offers superior protection, IP68 to be exact which ensures protection against dust, dirt and water.

Furthermore, the ShieldGLAND’s plastic outer body eliminates the need for a shroud helping to save time and improve ease of installation.

Finally, the finished look creates a much cleaner final installation. The ShieldGLAND has also been designed to work with our iconic COMBI junction box series and accessories.

Flexible design to suit your needs?

Thanks to its flexible design the ShieldGLAND can be used with armoured, SY, CY and non-armoured cables.

The ShieldGLAND’s versatile clamping olive can simply be switched to take either armoured or SY, CY making installation quick and easy.

The insert

The ShieldGLAND’s unique adaptable insert allows a wider range of cable acceptance than traditional CW type glands due to its two-part sealing gasket. Simply leave as is or remove the inner sealing insert depending on your cable requirement.

The ShieldGLAND is available in 4 sizes – M20S, M20L, M25 and M32. These sizes are available in 3 different ranges (or packs) – Standard, Pro and Elite.

The Standard range comes complete with 2 x ShieldGLANDs, 2 x locknuts and 2 x earth tag.

The Pro range comes complete with 2 x ShieldGLANDs, 2 x locknuts, 2 x E-SPRING and 2 x earth fly lead.

The Elite range is only available in M20S and comes complete with 1 x black COMBI 308/5, 2 x ShieldGLAND, 2 x locknuts, 2 x E-SPRING and 2 x earth fly lead.

What is the E-SPRING?

The E-SPRING is our steel earth continuity spring – simply squeeze the eyelets together to loosen the E-SPRING, place over the ShieldGLAND thread and release to wrap around the gland thread. Due to the E-SPRINGs unique space saving design it can be used in the tightest of spacing for earthing continuity (including the COMBI 308) without compromising IP rating. Simple, easy, and secure, the E-SPRING is available with Pro and Elite ranges.

The ShieldGLAND is out now and available from your local electrical wholesaler.
