Ellis’ innovative twist gives installers and specifiers plenty to shout about

  • 12 Sep 2019

Ellis has given cable cleat installation an innovative new twist that will significantly reduce installation time and costs, and simplify the ordering process.

The world’s leading cable cleat manufacturer has designed and developed a twist foot fixing mechanism for use on all sizes and types of its best-selling standard cable cleats, Emperor and Vulcan+.

The twist foot cleats, which are supplied pre-fitted, are suitable for all installations using cable channel and ladder with inverted rungs.

There are single footed versions for cables in trefoil up to 58mm, and double footed versions for cables with diameters ranging from 59mm to 128mm.

The single version locks in place with a simple 90 degree turn and the tightening of the integral securing bolt, while the double footed version is secured with tabs that are simply rotated 90 degrees to engage the channel nut, before the securing bolt is tightened.

Stephen Walton, Ellis’ technical director, commented: “Emperor and Vulcan+ have been the best-selling cable cleats in the world for years, but as a business that never rests on its laurels and always strives to innovate, we are always looking at ways to improve on everything – even the very best.”

“Making installation easier is something we’ve done a lot of work on, and the twist foot could be a real game changer.

“Not only does it slash installation cost and time, and signal an end to installers hunting around for the right nuts to go with the right bolts, but it means everything needed to install and fit a cable cleat can now be ordered as one product part.”

Ellis’ innovative approach to product development recently saw the company enhance another of its best-selling products, with its cable hangers being redesigned by its in-house engineering team – the end result being a product that is not only stronger, but cheaper to manufacture and buy.
