CLP manufactures a range of hand woven wire cable products (grips) which are designed for hauling power, telecommunication, data, fibre optic and coaxial cables and for winching rope through conduits, trenches and overhead poles.
High quality steel wire is used in weaving the individual grips – available in either galvanised wire or stainless steel. The weaving process leaves no loose or frayed wires at the tail end to cause damage to the cable or the conduit and is renowned for being pliable.
Ferrules are swaged in our factory using a 150 tonne hydraulic press to ensure maximum strength and durability. Factors such as the diameter of the grip, the tension caused through hauling, the number of times the grip has been used and the attachments to the winching rope, all contribute towards the user deciding the effective safety of the grip. The user should be aware of stress, misuse and wear and tear which affect the safe working load of the grips and effect a change sooner rather than later.
CLP grips are designed to haul single cables. A device such as the Wire Cable Bridle should be used to haul multiple cables at one time.
