RE: Cable clamps

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bart,

Some cables are anchored using fist grips, Spelter sockets, (The Crosby
Group 918-834-4611) and some use preformed anchors (Preformed Line Products
440-461-5200).  They are  tested to where the mode of failure is the cable
breaking prior to a failure of the fist grips or preforms.  

You need to contact the manufacturers for testing information.  It is done
by independent testing labs.  I don't think that you will find ICBO values,
but I could be wrong.

Does anyone know if there is any documentation available for cable
clamps?
Specifically any information regarding allowable values, ICBO reports or
test data available for the loading of cable clamps.

Dayton makes these for PT work, but do these have applications to cable
supported systems, and are the clamp values documented?

Thanks in advance,

Bart Needham
