Bus Bar Joint Shrouds and Boots

Insulating the bus bar & Switchgear joints is very unmanageable and exceptional job owing to a very exceptional job owing to a very complex and varied profile of the joints in the layouts that are of much customized nature. Because of this majority of the joints are left open without insulations.

In many advanced countries and few MNCs have made it mandatory to use flexible shrouds made of PVC Plastisols for insulation of joints. These electrical insulation shrouds are easily mountable, replaceable and serviceable but also possess better heat resistant and electrical properties and are very durable. These are also resistance to UV exposure ageing.

Features
  • Suitable for insulating bus bar joints. (Tee, elbow, etc.)
  • Provides significant reduction in air clearances
  • Excellent thermal & electrical properties
  • Good for indoor & outdoor applications
