Sleeving Braid

The primary use of a sleeving braid is to provide sensitive cables with an EMC screen to shield them against electromagnetic, electrostatic and radio frequency interference. Optimum screening performance is obtained using copper wire braid that can also be used for earth continuity purposes.

flexible busbars

Flexible Busbars

Multiple layers of flat braid are used and assembled in a parallel or stacked format to achieve the required cross sectional area or agreed current density. In certain circumstances flexible strand is a practical alternative. Busbars can be supplied insulated either over the whole assembly or individual layers of braid.

knitted wire mesh tape

Woven Wire Mesh Tape

Knitted (or woven) wire mesh and tape has a number of applications but is used mainly for EMC / RFI screening of electrical power, control, data and communication cables and for earth continuity in cable joints. In addition, the springy nature of the tape lends itself to providing a mechanical cushion against adjacent surfaces.

stocking braid

Stocking Braid

Designed specifically to maintain earth continuity on medium and high voltage jointing systems. The braid is fastened to one end of the exposed armouring. The braids’ construction allows it to be pushed back to open and form a cylinder of sufficient diameter to enable the stocking braid to slide over the joint.
