TR enhances plastics and rubber hardware range 12 May 2021

TR Fastenings has launched a new premium range of HUMMEL cable glands, an important addition to its growing plastic and rubber hardware portfolio. Confirming its commitment to increase the company’s product offering to existing and new customers nationally and globally.

HUMMEL cable glands are made of the highest quality plastic, brass and stainless steel and hold all the relevant approvals for international use. This range spans across numerous industry sectors with specific products to suit their needs.

Designed with safety in mind, the cable glands perform a number of essential roles in cable management. For instance, the cable glands are designed to attach and seal the end of an electric cable - providing earthing, grounding, insulation and strain relief when connected to plugs, terminals, enclosures or electrical equipment.

They are often used outdoors or in harsh and hazardous environments where they need to contain electrical sparks or repel external contaminants such as dirt, dust, water and moisture. In addition, they prevent cables twisting, tearing and pulling to ensure continual performance and a secure connection.

Hummel’s range offers a wide choice of high specification plastic and metal materials and mounting thread types. All products adhere to the strictest national and international specifications.

“TR is proud to offer this latest innovative range to customers and by working with a world class manufacturer in the connector field such as Hummel it strengthens our commitment to growing this range. This isn’t a one solution fits all scenario as we’ve seen the cable glands market change considerably over the years, with continuous product developments to meet industry demands. We do more than just deliver products, we provide solutions and we’re well poised to react quickly to this evolving market whilst remaining competitive,” comments Andrew Fletcher, director of plastics and rubber (commercial and technical) at TR.
