ARMADILLO Sealing Washer End Plates:
With the introduction of the ARMADILLO Series comes a
new end plate design. The ARMADILLO Sealing Washer
End Plates eliminate major tooling costs, eld drilling and
does not require extensive training.
ARMADILLO Drillable End Plates:
The ARMADILLO Series features a compatibility that
includes the eld proven Drillable End Plate. This end
plate system can accommodate a variety of cables, cable
sizes and cable congurations with either a two-section or
a three-section end plate design.
The ARMADILLO Sealing Washer
End Plate is your best choice when...
Your application does not require more
than one, two or three cable entry ports.
No power source for eld drilling is available.
Mastic sealing tapes are used that do not
require C-Cement making these End Plates
re-usable.
The ARMADILLO Drillable End Plate
is your best choice when...
Field exibility to custom drill the end plates
on the job site is necessary and a power
source is available.
You have a demanding application that
requires the LOCK-TAPE
Sealing System
providing exceptional pull-out strength.
You have vault applications.
Design Features:
These new end plates have no external fasteners, utilize
the proven PREFORMED
Torque Bar for positioning, and
have universal inserts that enable grounding connections
and air pressurization through the end plate. They also
feature a unique strengthened, two-piece sealing washer
that is available in the same sizes as competitive units and
is interchangeable.
Interchangeable and Compatible:
Both ARMADILLO End Plate styles are available in two and
three section designs for use with 4", 6.5", 8.0", 9.5" and
12.5" (drillable only) diameter shell kits. They are compat-
ible for use with the ARMADILLO Stainless shells. They will
also accept a hybrid application utilizing both End Plate
styles in the same closure.
Design Features:
ARMADILLO Drillable End Plates can be eld congured
to meet your application requirements. Less stock is required
with this design, because any bond connector can be used,
and xed sheath opening dimensions do not depend on
bond connector placement. They are available with ground-
ing and air valve inserts for air pressurization, aerial support
and grounding through the end plate.
End Plate Similarities:
No exposed fastener hardware
