Rip qord

In order to make working with NKT products even easier and safer, we have integrated a ripcord into our cables. Our unique solution allows cables to be stripped effortlessly with-out injuring your hands or damaging the cable core. The ripcord is located under the sheat, where it can easily be reached by making a small incision. This unique solution enables you to strip cables in no time - without injuries to hand or cable.

Dangers associated with working with cables are minimized thanks to the ripcord. Dangers which may lead to occupational injuries, sick leave, and damage along and around the cable when the jacket is stripped.

Working with cables has never been simpler

The ripcord – which runs the entire length of the cable – ensures that the sheat can be opened as long as necessary without using a knife. The ripcord is located under the cable jacket where it can easily be reached by making a small incision. This reduces the risk of cuts to hands and damage to the cable insulation.

Grip the ripcord and pull back to open the jacket, or use pliers to pull back the rip-cord.

Minimal need for a knife and therefore reduced risk of injuries to hands and damage to cables.

The ripcord can also be used to make a circumference cut

The ripcord is currently integrated in cables measuring 4 mm² and greater, and the range is growing steadily.
