Manchester cable seal manufacturer Roxtec has developed a new product aimed at the telecoms market which protects fiber cables as they enter buildings. Developed in conjunction with a leading telecoms company, the Roxtec End User Inlet is a quick and easy-to-install plug for both new and existing cables.
Roxtec UK managing director Graham O’Hare said the watertight seal prevents dust and rodents from interfering with fiber cables, which are now widely used to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication and cable television signals.
“The Roxtec End User Inlet is designed to be used wherever fiber or hybrid cables are being installed into existing buildings,” he said. “Specifically manufactured with the telecoms market in mind, the product provides a high level of protection and is IP 68-rated. The End User Inlet can be installed into drilled holes in brick or concrete walls or floors to prevent dust and rodents from entering the building and, crucially, provides water ingress protection too.
“The product has been rigorously tested for constant pressure, has a 2mm tolerance level, is available in a range of sizes for cables from 4 to 16mm in diameter and can be used below ground to a maximum depth of 3m. Like other Roxtec products, the End User Inlet ensures safety, efficiency and operational reliability and has been manufactured to stand the test of time.”
For flexibility, the flange can be removed to enable installation into angled holes. Re-installation is also possible with existing seals. Roxtec develop and manufacture complete sealing solutions for cable and pipe penetrations. The firm’s modular-based seals are its foundation, but its growth is primarily built on committed personnel, strong values and a clear customer focus.
Graham O’Hare said the company’s close co-operation with customers has created an innovative environment which enables Roxtec to tailor new solutions such as the End User Inlet and target new markets.
“This new product fits perfectly with Roxtec’s ethos of delivering high-quality sealing solutions that are easy to fit,” he said. “All of our seals protect against multiple hazards and, as the creation of the End User Inlet shows, our specialist staff have the knowledge and experience to tailor bespoke designs which ensure that our customers’ needs are met.”
