    • Our cold applied products utilize the unique cold shrink delivery system, designed to make cable jointing, insulating, termination and abandonment as simple as possible. Compared to heatshrink alternatives there is less chance of damaging XLPE cable material, less room for jointer error and no cooling time needed before energising. It is easier to use in enclosed areas and there is no requirements for special site permits. In a number of applications time saving benefits of cold shrink can be considerable thus lowering the overall installation cost.
