Stocking Braid

Screen Braid, Sleeving 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 section.

Having covered the joint area, the braid is then pulled tight and fastened back over the armouring.
