Investing in the future of cable protection


As a result of the continued confidence UK electrical contractors, installers and electricians have in our conduits and fittings, ABB has invested significantly in the Adaptaflex manufacturing facility, with the focus on production including new cutting-edge CNC machinery, and further corrugation and moulding technology to manufacture our critical wiring and cable protection product ranges.

Gary Fitzpatrick, Manufacturing Unit Manager at ABB in Coleshill commented: “As the market changes and the demand for more robust and reliable cable protection products increases, we want to retain our position as market leader, providing customers with products that are manufactured to the highest quality standards.”

Innovative new product launched for Food & Beverage sector


As a result, one new innovation is Adaptaflex’s ground breaking antimicrobial conduit, designed to see levels of bacteria reduced by up to 80% in the first 15 minutes and 99% in just two hours. Made in partnership with BioCote, this product is fast becoming a favourite with the Food & Beverage industry. Featuring a smooth, food grade DuPont Hytrel® thermoplastic jacket, the conduit is complimented by an industry first, single piece liquid tight 316 stainless steel fitting.

The conduit’s antimicrobial additive contains inert ionic silver, which doesn’t react or change the appearance of the final product. Additionally, it won’t diminish in extreme temperatures, such as steam or deep freeze. Crucially, the antimicrobial protection will not wear off or wash away, since it is incorporated during manufacture to form an integral aspect of the product. Bacteria cannot survive contact with the silver ions in the antimicrobial protection, in effect turning off the bacteria’s basic properties.

It’s yet another ABB My world of installation product that integrates seamlessly with our comprehensive product portfolio, guaranteeing UK specifiers, installers, electrical contractors and electricians infinite compatibility solutions.
