Products

Heyco Hose Clamp Super Duty Cable Clamp

Cable Clamps and Clips

Cable clamps and clips are holders that will retain your cables, wires and hoses in a neat position. We have a wide range of metal and plastic (nylon) clamps and clips including Super Duty Cable Clamps, Snap-In and Self-Adhesive Cable Clips.

Heyco White Plastic Nylon Cable Gland

Cable Glands

Cable glands are designed to seal and retain electrical cables by ensuring that they are properly attached and secured to the equipment they’re being fed into. A seal is created to maintain this connection which also works to keep out dust and moisture.

Available in both plastic and brass construction, cable gland kits are offered in a range of sizes to suit all installations. They are also known as liquid tight cordgrips.

Panduit Black Nylon Plastic Cable Tie

Cable Ties

Cable ties, also known as wire ties, zip ties or hose ties are low-cost and have many uses including bundling things together such as cables and wires. They are generally single-use devices and are cut off rather than loosened and reused. Choose from stainless steel or plastic.

Galvanised Steel Flexible Conduit

Conduit

Conduit is a type of tubing for tidying, protecting, supporting and managing cables and wires. Cable conduit is ideal for running electrical wires underground, through walls or when cables need protecting in an area. Conduits are available in plastic (nylon), PVC, and steel.

Heyco Dome Plug

Dome Plugs

Dome plugs are blanking plugs used the sheet metal industry to protect against sharp edges and are ideal for closing panel holes temporarily or permanently. Circular, rectangular and square shapes are available as well as many different sizes.

Adjustable Levelling Foot

Feet

Feet are used for levelling and supporting. They come in various different types such as self-adhesive and snap-in bumperfeet and screw-in and push-in adjustment feet.

Heyco Liquid Tight Flexible Conduit

Flexible Hose

Because of their additional layer of stainless steel braiding, flexible hoses are stronger and more durable than traditional hoses. Normal hoses can weaken and even split when pressure is applied. Kinks and crimping are avoided by the braid following the movement of the hose.

PVC Perforated Diaphragm Grommets

Grommets & Bushings

Grommets are pieces of rubber or plastic (PVC) which cover an edge and are commonly used in electrical applications such as metal back boxes. They are used when cables or wire need to pass through a panel and edges need smoothing.

Heyco Hose Clamp

Hose Clamps

Hose clamps or hose clips are circular bands which can be tightened with a pair of pliers.  Tightening the worm gears reduces the diameter of the band causing the clamp/clip to tighten around the hose.  They are available in black or white and made from glass-filled nylon or nylon 66.

Heyco Snap Bushing

Snap Bushings

Snap bushings are used to convert raw/sharp edged holes to smooth, neat, insulated holes to protect wires, cables, tubes and hoses, The locking fingers snap/push into holes with fingertip pressure.

Strain Relief Bushings

Strain Relief Bushings

Strain relief bushings securely anchor, insulate and protect cables and wires when mounted onto a split panel. They protect against pulls, pushes and twists.

KRYLEX Industrial Threadlocker

Threadlocker

Anaerobic threadlockers are applied to threads of fasteners which cures into a hard thermoset plastic locking the assembly together and preventing unwanted movement, leaking and corrosion.  Threadlockers provide superior reliabiltiy over mechanical locking devices in the assembly of threaded fasteners at a lower overall cost.
