With the new TKA55 product concept, TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP convinced the international jury of the iF design award 2013 and received an award in the product design category. Due to the highly impenetrable construction, the cable carriers provide reliable protection for cables in accordance with protection class IP54 against dirt, chips and spray water right up to the connection.
The innovative TKA55 cable carrier received the iF product design award 2013 for the new design concept: the completely enclosed construction effectively prevents the ingress of contaminating particles. Optimised sideband and cover contours also prevent the impairment of functions due to adhesion or penetration of chips and dirt. The interlocking covers fit tightly together and the smooth, dirt-repelling contour of the sidebands likewise prevents penetration by foreign objects.
German TÜV NORD has tested and attested the impermeability of the TKA55 to IP54. IP54 attest includes protection against spray water and ingress of dust, as well as complete protection against contact. All products of the TKA series are also optionally available in extremely heat-resistant versions: a special material that withstands temperatures up to 850°C protects the cables reliably against the adverse effects of hot chips, for example.
The iF design awards are among the most important international design competitions. Since 1953 they are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in the three disciplines product design, communication design and packaging design. TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP has already received five awards since 2006.
