Raxton’s comprehensive range of Stopping Plugs are designed to close any unused entries in electrical equipment without revoking existing certification. Following the basic rules in line with good engineering practice Raxton Stopping Plugs should be inserted directly into the unused entry and not into a thread Reducer or thread Adaptor. Raxton Stopping Plugs are marked with the appropriate approval number and size. Tested to IP68.
Hexagon Headed Plugs are inserted from the outside and fastened by means of a spanner.
