One of the most complete ranges of solutions in its category, Kabseal features airtight pipe and cable grommets, along with radon grommets.
With a focus on exceptional performance, reliability and energy efficiency, Partel believe these innovative products are set to revolutionise the market.
Partel said the phA Class Passive House Institute-certified airtight cable grommets Kabseal Pro and Kabseal Pro 6 use cutting edge technology to offer reliable solutions for sealing cable penetrations. Available in various dimensions and suitable for internal and external use, these grommets have been designed to ensure a secure and permanent airtight seal, effectively preventing air leakage and optimising energy efficiency. Specially designed for multi-cable use, Kabseal Pro 6 can accommodate multiple cables, making installations hassle-free. Partel said that their user-friendly installation and exceptional durability will ensure long-lasting performance in residential, commercial and industrial settings.
While Kabseal Pro can also be used for sealing pipes of different diameters, Partel has also launched Kabseal Heat, a remarkably heat-resistant grommet of up to 250 C for sealing exhaust pipes and other temperature-sensitive openings. Partel said the advanced safe design and superior sealing capabilities of these pipe grommets eliminate air leaks, providing unmatched protection against energy loss.
The company has designed Kabseal Gas and Kabseal Slab to address the unique challenges of radon mitigation systems. By creating an airtight seal around pipe, cable and supply line penetrations, these grommets prevent the entry of radon gas into living spaces, ensuring the health and safety of occupants. Partel said these grommets are an essential component in radon mitigation strategies, offering peace of mind and compliance with regulatory standards.
Meanwhile, Kabseal Cap has been designed as an “extremely practical” airtight conduit seal to provide a fast, convenient solution for creating secure, durable seals around multiple cables within a conduit. With a versatile range of sizes, Kabseal Cap offers a suitable option for various conduit dimensions, ensuring a perfect fit for project-specific requirements. Engineered to facilitate smokeproof and airtight connections, this product has been designed to be equally adept at sealing empty conduits, to provide a comprehensive solution for any electrical installation needs.
Finally, Partel describe its new airtight electrical back box Electriseal Box as “a gamechanger in electrical installations”. Engineered to enhance safety and energy efficiency, Electriseal Box creates an airtight seal around electrical connections, preventing air leaks and the ingress of dust and moisture. With a robust construction and compatibility with standard electrical fixtures, Partel describe these back boxes as a “must-have” for residential and commercial electrical systems.
“Partel is proud to unveil our comprehensive range of airtight solutions, Kabseal,” Partel CEO Hugh Whiriskey. “These innovative products demonstrate our commitment to providing reliable, efficient, and sustainable solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
