Next generation technology from Carl Kammerling


1Carl Kammerling International has launched a pioneering range of next generation cable rods, which, featuring advanced technology, are set to enhance its already extensive range of cable routing tools. The C.K MightyRod PRO cable rods fuse a series of advanced technological features to deliver the ultimate in performance.

Featuring SplinterSHIELD, a significant advancement in cable rod technology and a European first, the durable, 100 per cent splinterproof coating fully encases the inner fibreglass rod to prevent harmful and painful splintering.

Available in three different degrees of rigidity for different applications - a 7mm rigid rod for overhead use, a 6mm flexible rod for most everyday applications, and a 4mm super-flexible rod, there is also a mini-coiled spring steel Flexi Lead that aids navigation through obstacles and around bends.

A splinterproof MightyRod PRO GLO rod has also been developed. The glow-in-the-dark, phosphorescent rod not only brings light to low-light working conditions, it also enables professionals to work without fear of experiencing painful splinters.

Completing the innovative MightyRod PRO cable rod range, is the super-flexible 1m SPIRA-FLEX rod, which is perfect for accessing tight corners, bends or obstacles. Manufactured from an advanced Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) material with a helical profile, the SPIRA-FLEX rod reduces friction as it rides across surfaces, making the act of pulling and pushing a run of rods far easier, particularly in conduits or trunking where there is cabling already in situ.

The new range comes complete with a series of industry-leading accessories. Offering unsurpassed levels of strength, the triple-fixed Mighty-Fix connectors undergo a unique triple fixing system, resulting in a far more secure connector to rod bond to prevent disconnection during heavy load jobs. With a tensile strength in excess of 275kg, the average weight of three grown men, the slim profile of the super-tough zinc-plated steel Mighty-Fix connectors also reduces snagging and provides accessibility through smaller holes.

Graham Godfrey, Brand Manager at Carl Kammerling International, commented: “While our existing, and extensive range of cable routing tools have proven to be a big success among tradesmen looking for superior performance, the launch of our MightyRod PRO range takes our offering to new heights. Featuring brand new technology, the first of its kind in Europe, our entire cable routing range exemplifies ‘next generation’ rods.”
