Cable junction boxes must be sufficiently resistant to fire, according to household appliance standard EN 60335-1. Thus, the flammability is reduced and, in case of failure, flames are prevented from spreading.

In order to achieve this, halogenated flame retardants are often used in plastic parts. Such additives are controversial, since they are partly persistent, bioaccumulating and toxic substances. Plastic parts with halogen-containing flame retardants are therefore also intended for separate disposal in accordance with the WEEE Directive.

For this reason, Electro Terminal uses halogen-free materials for all standard cable connection boxes. With this outstanding feature as well as its super flat design, the KADO XT cable connection box is the perfect choice for home appliances drawing up to 41 amps.
