Cable Repair Sleeve


  • Innovative Power Product’s cable repair sleeve, LVWRS is a heatshrinkable, wraparound sleeve with precoated adhesive, designed for repairing primary insulation, or damaged cable jackets. It is ideally suited for direct burial or cable tray applications. The LVWRS kits cover a conductor size range from 8 AWG-2500 kcmil for single-core, three-core and three-core-armored power cables rated up to 1000 volts. The wraparound sleeve permanently insulates and repairs all common types of low voltage rubber or plastic insulation and repairs jacket damage to all low or medium voltage power cables.

    The LVWRS sleeve provides a reliable abrasion resistant, moisture proof method of repairing fixed power cables. The sleeves are the economical and permanent solution for repairing mid-run jacket damage to medium voltage cables and insulation/jacket damage for low voltage power cables

Installation is fast and simple, no special skills required:

• Clean each side of the damaged area
• Wrap sleeve around cable and install closure channel
• Center sleeve over damaged area; shrink in place

Sleeves of the same length can be connected to
increase their diameter use range. If you connect
two of the same size and length sleeves together,
the diameter use range will double.
