Our cables have an integrated rip cord. This unique solution enables you to strip cables in no time - without injuries to hand or cable.
Reckless praise is not something that comes easy with director and licensed electrical installer, Bo Christiansen, from Del-Tech in Ringsted. His words are thoughtful and the superlatives are not next in line. Yet, his enthusiasm is unmistakable regarding NKTs rip cord integrated cables. His first termed "amazing" is later rephrased to ”a surprisingly good product, with a 100% efficiency” and in the end he describes the product as ”easy, safe and quick – because of the manageable process”.
Both as an employer and as an electrical installer, Bo Christiansen is concerned with the importance of avoiding accidents at work. In a business where accidents, while fortunately being on a continuous decline, is still a known phenomenon, rules and laws are very important subjects. Another equally important subject, considered by both Del-Tech and NKT, is the working environment and the results of the electricians labour.
”With safety in mind, it is always more beneficial to make as little use of the knife as possible, while working with cables. In this manor, cables with integrated rip cord is a fantastic solution, that not only looks good on paper, but also works 100% as intended in the daily work, Bo Christiansen proclaims.
”Rip Qord is as simple as it is efficient. Using your fingers, you take out the cord and because it is continuous, one can open the sheath as far as needed. It presents a nice and clean cut and at the end of the cable it can also be used as a tool to cut of the excessive sheath”, Bo Christiansen clarifies.
The rip cord is currently available in cables of 4 mm² and above and the product range is expanded continuously.
