Hawke Cable Glands

For more than 60 years, Hubbell’s Hawke cable glands have been distinguished for their superb quality, focus on safety and easy installation. Hawke has recently introduced their new range of cable glands that surpass the features their customers have come to expect and respect, plus a few new extras added that will make installation, inspection and maintenance even easier than ever before.

Hawke Cable Glands’ New Features

  • Patented Tightening Guide
    The Hawke patented tightening guide reduces the chance of glands being over or under tightened. The guide is now integrated in all Hawke glands, as standard!
  • Fully Inspectable Glands with NEC Certification
    Hawke’s non-metallic, fully inspectable barrier gland has gained NEC certification, meaning it is the only non-metallic gland approved for use in the US.
  • New Gland Conversion Kit
    Hawke gives its customers the option to convert a standard Exd 501/453/Universal Gland to an ICG/653/Universal Barrier Gland with the purchase of a simple kit. The kit is available in two forms, either a two-part hand mix putty or a liquid, fast curing resin, ensuring suitable solutions for any situation.
  • Three Alternative Solutions for Exd Barrier Glands
    Hawke is the only manufacturer that offers three sealing options! This means unique benefits that are unrivaled by other manufacturers.
  • Protection from Water and Dust Penetration
    Protection ratings include IP66, which withstands high waterjet pressure, and IP67/68, which tests the product as it is submerged in water. We have also added IP69 protection, assuring our glands can withstand high pressure steam cleaning.
