SAFETY seal manufacturer Roxtec has extended its range of cable seals with an innovative new seal specifically for underground power cables serving structures including electricity substations and wind turbines.

Roxtec UK managing director Graham O’Hare said the new Roxtec UG sealing system is ideal for power cables entering foundations or basements because it protects against flooding, humidity and continuous water pressure.

The UG seal is IP68-rated, 1 bar for catastrophic water pressure and 0.3 bar for constant water pressure. It can be used on trefoil single core cables. The system has been tested in Roxtec’s specialist test laboratory with retention tests of 1400N and 3300N depending on the product selected, meaning the system can handle the weight of many cables which is often the cause of failure in traditional sealants.

Engineers and designers can find out more at Roxtec’s CPD accredited seminars on sealing cables and pipes in substations.
