Roxtec’s Bonding + Grounding System Protects Cables and Pipes in Buildings

Roxtec has introduced a Bonding & Grounding (BG) cable entry system designed for sealing large quantities of armoured or metal clad cables within the least space. It provides effective electrical protection and safety, both to equipment and people. It also protects against fire, blasts, weather and rodents.

Roxtec provides mechanical pipe and cable sealing systems for the building construction industry. These systems provide protection against fire, gas, water and pull-out, noise, vibrations, electro-magnetic interference and blast loads.

The Roxtec sealing system is a rubber sealing module with two halves, having a center core, and removable blue and black layers. These layers can be peeled off to ensure a tight fit for different sizes of pipes and cables. Their unique construction facilitates adaptability to various sizes. A compression unit and a frame unit are used along with the Roxtec modules for effective sealing.

A single BG cable entry system can be used for sealing multiple cables having different outside diameters. The BG modules feature removable layers that allow the module to adapt to the cable sheath and the cable armor for effective bonding, grounding and sealing. This facility enables simpler and quicker installation. These modules also have a “spare capacity” that allows addition, removal or change of cables.

The Roxtec BG multi-cable transit system is water-and-gas tight and is fire rated for applications in floor and wall penetrations. It has received hazardous locations certification and meets major electrical schemes for high to low voltage applications.

The Roxtec BG solutions can also be used for control and instrumentation cabinets and electrical enclosures. They are approved for major global electrical schemes. Thirty two cables can be accommodated in a single cabinet, which allows reduction in weight and size of cabinets.
