The glands are made from electric furnace cast steel to BS 3100: 1976 Grade A1 as are the split bases. Solid bases are supplied in mild steel to BS 4360: 1979, Grade 43A. Shackles and pins, if required are of high tensile steel to BS 3032: 1958.

All glands are proof load tested to twice the safe working load.
