A suspension clamp is designed to give the conductors both physical and mechanical support. This is important especially when you have installed the conductors for the power transmission line and even telephone lines.
Suspension clamps enhance the stability of the conductor by limiting their movements especially against a strong wind, storm, and other vagaries of nature.
Made of galvanized steel, suspension clamps have adequate tensional strength to support the weight of conductors onto the perfect positions. The material is also resistant to corrosion and abrasion hence can serve its primary purpose for a long time.
Suspension clamps feature a clever ergonomic design that ensures that the weight of the conductor is evenly distributed on the clamp’s body. This design also provides perfect angles of connection for the conductor. In some cases, counterweights are added to prevent the conductor’s uplift.
Other fittings such as nuts and bolts are used along with the suspension clamps to enhance the connection with the conductors.
You may also request a custom design of a suspension clamp to suit your application area. This is vital since some suspension clamps are designed for single cables while others are for bundle conductors.
