Roxtec RS ES Cable Transit Frame

Sealing Cables & Pipes

Roxtec RS ES Cable Transit Frame is a round shielded entry seal consisting of two halves and an adaptable centre with removable layers – the Roxtec cable seal has compression integrated in the frame and allows installation around an existing cable or pipe.

The Roxtec frame parts are assembled to construct different sizes and combinations of openings to accommodate and seal LV-HV cables and pipes. Suitable for installation also around existing multiple or single cables and pipes.

Roxtec round cable transit frames are used to provide a reliable cable sealing ensuring safety, efficiency and long-term operational reliability – Roxtec cable seals protect against fire, gas, water, dusts, pests, blast load and electromagnetic interference.
