From the first WISKA products made of polyethylene to the highlights of today: Our all-stars grommets.

A team only works like an excellent gearwheel when even the smallest components perform at their best. On the occasion of our centenary, we present our grommets All-Stars team.

1961 – First special grommets for KA installation boxes

1961 – First special grommets for KA installation boxes

With the improved manufacturing conditions of plastics in the early 1950’s – specifically in the fields of polyethylene (PE) and thermoplastic materials, WISKA begins developing and manufacturing a grommet for the newly launched KA installation box. This grommet is inserted into a KA knockout allowing quick and easy cable entry. This grommet is cut or pierced, and cable is then inserted.

1963 – The WISKA twisting sleeve

1963 – The WISKA twisting sleeve

Following on from the KA grommet, the twisting grommet is launched in 1963.  Made of polyethylene (PE) the twisting sleeve features a thread and is available with and without an aperture.  This product opens up new application prospects as it is not limited to use with one product.

1999 - The faster QUIXX® membrane grommet

1999 - The faster QUIXX® membrane grommet

In order to make work easier and more effective for the user, the grommet is optimised - the QUIXX® series is launched on the market. QUIXX is manufactured using 2-component injection moulding: a hard-threaded outer body with a soft membrane inner (made of thermoplastic elastomer). Simple insert QUIXX into opening, pierce membrane and insert cable. A flame-retardant TPE version is also available.

2010 - The stronger CLIXX® grommet

2010 - The stronger CLIXX® grommet

In 2010, WISKA expands their grommet range further with the launch of CLIXX®. The CLIXX® series not only enables simple and fast cable entry through a soft component, but also ensures that the cable is strain-relieved thanks to the unique clasping system. Through its flat construction, CLIXX® is particularly space-saving in tight installation spaces.

2017 - The MultiCLIXX® all-rounder

2017 - The MultiCLIXX® all-rounder

WISKA launches MultiCLIXX® / TKS 32 on the market. And the name says it all: The product combines strain relief, robust body, soft membrane and can run several cables at the same time. MultiCLIXX® / TKS 32 thus offers the user a further type of cable entry to install cables quickly, easily and safely via a grommet. Our subsidiary WISKA UK wins a 'Top Product' award with this product at the end of 2017.
