Cable joiners

Joiners are essential when working with wires and cables in awkward environments. Distrelec’s stock comes in a range of sizes and capacities to fit your needs.


The process of splicing is to separate a cable so that two end terminals can be connected to their respective cable conductors. Splicing cassettes sold by Distrelec are the housing for the beginning or the end of cable transmission paths.

Junction boxes

When two or more cables are carrying an electrical current, a junction box is an ideal place for protecting the junction and also to be easily found when maintenance needs to take place.

Hinges and interlocks are made in many types. Adjustable toggle-type fasteners offer an adjustable clamping force. A star grip with internal thread offers a robust mechanism to pull and shut doors. Wing screws offer a convenient handle that can be fastened on to doors and other openings. Among the popular type of locks, the quintessential padlock has a solid brass body and steel shackles, in different dimensions and hook lengths. A variant is the nylon safety padlocks, with its non-conductive properties, best suited for places involving electricity panels and cables. Disc padlocks are noted for their robustness, having advanced features, such as a five-pin cylinder, anti-pick mushroom pins, hardened steel shackles and a stainless steel body. Padlocks are available in various strengths, with a double lock bolting mechanism suiting normal applications. Combination locks are similar to padlocks, but a rotating set of marked or numbered dials replaces keys. Magnetic locks operate on a magnetic system. The system consists of an electromagnetic strip attached to the door frame and an armature plate attached to the door. Passing a current through the electromagnet creates a magnetic flux, causing the armature plate to be attracted to the electromagnet and creating a locking action. Direct pull electromagnetic locks are fail-safe, which are unlocked when de-energised.
