Availability of Cable Glands in the Market

By Quentin Clark Subscribe to RSS | April 18th 2012 | Views:

There is a growing extensive use of cable glands in the home and office as well as the various industries across the globe today. These form the basic wire management products which are very functional and useful in many industries and home needs.

Although there may be other types or wire management products such as grommets, panel plugs, bushings, tapes & tubing, connector caps, plugs, clamps & clips as well as many others, cable glands form a popular choice.


There are constantly new lines of cable glands produced to cater to the changing needs of consumers and the relevant industries. Although there may be many designs of cable glands in the market, the industrial recommendation would be to choose cable glands that have the smallest maximum range of clamping for the required or desired application. This is important to ensure the best functionality of the cable glands as they join the availability of rubber and plastic grommets in protecting wires and cables against damage from sharp edges.

Specific models

Cable glands come in specific models for the specific application. The right angle cable glands come in black UL nylon material which is highly recommended. NPT cable glands can withstand a wide range of temperate from –40°F to as high as 221°F with an intermittent temperature as high as 300°F. These special cable glands have an IP 68 rated protection of 5 bars that allows excellent performance against dust and water. They are very strong and durable to resist against strain. However, the right angle cable glands may have extra components that come separately.

These special cable glands are designed with variable clamping ranges that prove to be an advantage for fitting a wider diameter range.

Other cable glands in the market which are also quite popular are the metric cable glands. These are usually black UL nylon materials that can also withstand the same wide range temperature as the right angle cable glands. But outdoor applications would be better off with PG cable glands which can withstand the outdoor harsh and uncertain weather conditions better than other types of cable glands.


Cable glands of any sort can be purchased easily from the manufacturer onsite or offline. The Internet proves to be a convenient platform in procuring these industrial components easily and safely. It is also cheaper to deal directly with the respective reputable cable gland manufacturers online to avoid third party commissions. Shipping and delivery charges are minimal which can be waived with huge orders.
