More information

Pressure Rating:

Although Griplock is not a pressure rated hose, it can generally be expected to withstand pressures of up to 1 BAR (100 kpa) where the discharge from the hose is open ended.

Special Features:

A ‘floppy’ Griplock is available in the smaller diameters (up to 76mm I/D) which is ideal for cable protection. 

The ‘stiff’ version of our Griplock is constructed with a tighter section which improves the air tightness of the hose and gives it ‘stayput’ characteristics. 

Heavy Duty:

Heavy duty Griplock is made from a thicker strip for heavy duty applications and environments. Available in material from 0.3 / 0.8mm thick. 

Conical Griplock:     

We can manufacture our Griplock in a conical / tapered shape with a different I/D on either end. This can help reduce costs of expensive fittings and adaptors. Increasingly popular for all sorts of technical applications.
