Birkett Cable Joints are the leading specialist U.K. manufacturer of low voltage cold pour resin filled cable joints, mechanical core connectors and cable jointing accessories.

Established for over 35 years, Birkett Electric continues to be at the forefront of the development of cable joints, being the first manufacturer to independently test their cable jointing kits to the latest performance standard BS EN 50393:2006.

BS EN 50393 Tested Cable Jointing Kits

The well proven Birkett Swishpak® jointing system is designed and tested for jointing XLPE, EPR, HEPR and PVC insulated cables in the voltage range up to 3300V rating with copper or aluminium conductors.

The full range of straight through, branch and multi-service joints have been type tested to BS EN 50393. Our Swishpak® 2 part resin compound cures to give a cast resin joint with excellent electrical and mechanical properties that does not allow the ingress of moisture.

Birkett cable joints are the ideal method of jointing with mechanical or crimp type connectors on plastic or paper insulated industrial energy cables.

IEC 61238-1 Tested Mechanical Connectors

The full range of straight through, branch and service connectors are manufactured from aluminium with a patented reversible bolt slide providing a greater range for the cable jointing of copper aluminium conductors.

Alleviates the need to bend the conductor double or to pack out.

Will accept dissimilar metal conductors without the need to shape stranded conductors by hand.

Tested to IEC 61238-1 providing a short circuit test to 270°C at 25800 Amps and tensile tested to 18200 Newton metres.
