Cable Crimps, Lugs & Connectors

Cable cutting tools to suit LV-HV cables with copper or aluminium conductors, steel wire armoured (SWA) / braided cables with lead sheath and insulation types including XLPE, EPR and paper types – commonly used to cut armoured LV cables and medium/high voltage power cables 11kV-33kV, single and 3 core type.


Cable crimping tools using hydraulic or battery operated to crimp conductors 1.5sqmm-1000sqmm suit aluminium and copper conductors with sector shaped, stranded or solid cores.

Cable Cutting & Crimping Tools

Cable jointing tools for stripping and preparing low, medium and high voltage power cables including 11kV, 33kV, 66kV and 132kV-400kV polymeric cables with XLPE or EPR insulation and bonded/peelable semi-conductive cable screens.





T&D distribute Cable Jointing Tools from leading manufacturers including Alroc, Ripley, Boddingtons and Hivotec for all types of LV, MV or HV cable stripping, preparation and jointing requirements – insulated tools are available for live-working on low voltage cables, joints and electrical equipment up to 1,000v.

Cable Jointing Tools

Cable protection covers, tile tapes and underground warning tapes are installed over LV, MV and HV power cables in trench and ducted cable installations with high visibility colour providing a visual warning of danger when excavating cables.


11kV and 33kV cable protection tapes (Tapetile and Stokbord covers) are manufactured from heavy duty plastic for reliable protection.


Underground protective covers are used to provide a clear and effective visual warning to the presence of LV-HV underground cables, cable duct or high voltage cable joints.
