The tension dead-end is intended for turning angle, continuing and terminal connecting. The helical aluminum-clad steel rod has strong tensile strength, no concentrative stress, plays a role to protect cable and assist reducing vibration. The whole set of cable tension hardware contains structural reinforcing rod, matching connection hardware. The holding strength of clamp is no less than 95% of rated tensile strength, quick and easy to install, cut construction cost, suitable for a span＜100m.
The hardware is mainly intended to bear axial tension, and uniformly distribute radial stress, to ensure safe and reliable holding strength offered on the premise of not damaging cable (mostly used in turning angle, continued pole and terminal pole)
Configure model by cable diameter, RTS and span
Installation of Tension Dead-end for Short Span ADSS
Components: anchor shackle, thimble clevis, structural reinforcing rod
1. Assemble Anchor shackle and thimble clevis togethe
2. Fix Anchor shackle onto a hanging point;
3. Pull one end of structural reinforcing rod through thimble clevis;
4. Make both legs of structural reinforcing rod paralleled with cable, make a crossover mark on cable at its color mark position;
5. Make the structural reinforcing rod installation color mark aligned to the cable crossover mark done in step 4, wind one leg of structural reinforcing rod for 1-2 pitches from the crossover mark;
6. Wind another leg for 1-2 pitches as the same beginning from crossover mark;
7. Meanwhile, wind its both legs until about 20-30cm from the end of the structural reinforcing rods;
8. For convenience, tear the part of about 20-30cm from the end of the structural reinforcing rods into smaller subsets winding;
9. Make sure all structural reinforcing rods are level, natural and even;
10. Installation is over.
1. Select tension clamp model according to cable’s outer diameter, rated tensile strength (or span), etc.;
2. In moving and installation, the tension clamp’s structural reinforcing rod shall be avoided from extrusion, severe impact and deformation;
3. As matching components, tension clam shall not be changed randomly, not be used repeatedly;
4. If in doubt, please contact us.
