    The fully closed joint with the cable inside is totally water resistant allowing permanent immersion at up to 10 metres in depth.

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

From the technological point of view, Shark has been the best solution in the field of gel insulation connections for over 15 years. In an effort to overcome and improve on the current limits and the standards adopted today, Etelec has accepted a stiff challenge: to begin a project that, starting out from the standards of the Shark range, will interpret the future using the finest technology, providing unique and effective solutions to make the installer’s job easier and safer.

Shark SIXEIGHT has been selected by the Permanent Observatory of Design of the ADI (the Industrial Design Association) for inclusion in the ADI Design Index, ADI’s annual publication that brings together the best Italian design.
