Cable Joints | 11kV 33kV | Medium & High Voltage Cables MV HV | Heat Shrink

Thorne & Derrick distribute HV Cable Joints for 6.6kV 11kV 33kV high voltage cables – we provide competitive prices for heat shrink joints for HV cables from extensive stocks to UK and international destinations.

Heat shrink cable joints include straight, transition and branch types for XLPE, PILC and EPR single and 3 core cables – suitable for all types of polymeric and paper insulated medium/high voltage cables with/without steel wire armour or braid, copper tape/wire screens and copper or aluminium conductors up to 33kV.

  • Mechanical connectors for conductor and copper wire /screen shield are supplied
  • Short, slim profile and compact space saving design for installation

Robust Outer Cable Sealing & Protection

Modern cable laying techniques require a robust oversheath and jacket replacement capable of withstanding high mechanical stresses during conventional cable pulling and laying as well as mechanical impact occurring during the entire cable life time. The thick-wall heat-shrinkable tubing is internally coated with a hot melt adhesive to ensure an effective moisture seal and corrosion protection for the joint.
