Overhead cables have been a huge part of the utility supply infrastructure. Easy access for maintenance and repairs are significant features that make overhead cables a popular option for utility supply. There is a wide range of tools and equipment contracts use for overhead cable pulling.
Such equipment is referred to as aerial equipment and is vital to ensure the safety of the workers. Without such equipment, it is increasingly difficult to maintain the utility supply infrastructure.
In this blog, we discuss cable blocks, one of the vital types of equipment contractors use for overhead cable pulling. AMAC Equipment Limited is one of the trusted suppliers of cable blocks.
Different types of cable blocks supplied by AMAC Equipment Limited.
Single roller cable blocks
A single roller cable block is one of the most basic and effective equipment contractors use. It supports a single coaxial cable or inner duct up to 2.75". The cable most commonly used with such blocks is fibre optic or copper cable. The single roller cable block features a built-in strand lock that prevents creeping. These blocks are equipped with a steel cable retainer that keeps the cable on the roller even in low-tension situations.
Pole mount cable blocks
As the name suggests, these cable blocks can be mounted on poles with the help of a 3-bold strang clamp. The pole mount cable blocks usually feature aluminum sheave or plastic sheave frames. One of the important things to keep in mind is to use a polyester rope with aluminum block rollers as other ropes are not compatible.
Overlash cable blocks
Overlash cable blocks support a single coaxial, fiber optic or copper cable. up to 3.75" outside diameter. A built-in unidirectional strand lock fit up to 1/2" strand to prevent creeping during cable installation.
