A good fitting is essential to complete an electrical system since it allows all elements to be joined while ensuring sealing and effectiveness, protecting against environmental agents and external disturbance. Fittings are needed to connect cables to flexible conduits or rigid pipes, or connect them to other devices, such as electrical junction boxes or derivation boxes.
Fittings are used with flexible conduits and rigid pipes to make high-efficiency systems for electrical cable protection. Fittings can be made of plastic or metal materials and have specific characteristics that make them suitable for electrical systems in various contexts.
We have the whole range of fittings and cable glands. We at Euro 2000 are specialized in the production of modular fittings that allow many combination possibilities and high flexibility, ensuring the use of our fittings in many different applications.
When discussing fittings, it is always good to consider the context where the products shall be used and their final application.
In public facilities, the most appropriate choice is metal electrical cables protection systems because they cannot trigger fires and are passive to external stresses. In fact, if necessary, in facilities crowded with large numbers of people, it is recommended to use fittings and other components made of halogen-free plastic materials that cannot produce toxic gasses and fumes in the event of a fire.
The sectors where it is recommended to use metal fittings, for example, are:
In addition, metal fittings for protecting electrical cables are preferred when the facilities where the installation is carried out are at risk of rodent infestation, for example:
Sometimes it is necessary to use plastic (or metal-plastic) fittings in public facilities or industrial applications. In these cases, it is necessary to choose self-extinguishing fittings that contain no halogens and ensure minimal emission of toxic fumes.
I settori in cui viene comunemente utilizzata raccorderia elettrica in plastica (o metallo plastica) sono:
To obtain safe and certified electrical systems, it is necessary to choose cable protection solutions that meet the standards defined in the current regulations.
Fittings must comply with, among others, the following standards:
Euro 2000 metal fittings comply with the requirements of the standards previously listed that certify the closed system of conduits, pipes, and fittings.
In addition, our fittings are modularly designed so that all the products in our catalog can be assembled differently and can ensure a wide product range. They are also perfectly interchangeable with our competitors’ series. This competitive advantage allowed us to be recognized in the sector as innovators and creators of simplified and interchangeable quality for:
This modular fittings system allows great flexibility in all electrical applications where installation needs require simple fittings, cable gland fittings, cable glands, quick connectors or coupling fitting, and quick-coupling cable glands.
