Guy grip is an electrical accessory and a tensioned cable, which adds strength and stability to any mechanical structure like a pole, tower, ship masts, turbines, etc. They are widely used to anchor the poles in a way that the dead ends of these poles are secured. These grips are carefully twisted to add stability to the telecommunication or electric cables that can damage otherwise. As these grips are the adhesive tape used to secure guy wires to utility poles, they are not only extremely durable but also capable of withstanding severe weather and operational conditions.
What to Consider When Buying A Guy Grip?
1. Choose Guy Grips that Fit Your Industry
One of the most important things to consider before buying a guy grip is to look for industry-specific products. For instance, some grips perform better in the telecommunication sector, while others are more relevant in the transportation or railway sectors. As all these sectors have different power needs, the grips manufactured for them are essentially different. So, always look for specific products related to your industry to make the most out of them.
2. Size of the Guy Grip
Their size becomes crucial as guy grips have to provide a reliable connection between the wires and the poles. If you are getting a smaller size, it will not provide a proper grip between all the electric components, resulting in an inconsistent power supply to the consumers. Similarly, a smaller than required grip will also break down due to the consistent pressure being applied to the grip. On the other hand, a loose grip will not provide a proper grip between the poles and the wires.
3. Material of the Guy Grip
When choosing a guy grip, the material of the grip should also be an important consideration. These grips come in various materials, including aluminum wire, clad steel, and galvanized steel. Normally, the grip is of the same material to which they are applied to maximize their performance and avoid any inconsistency in the electrical properties of these structures.
l Preformed Guy Grip Dead-End for Conductor
The advantages and features of the guy grips for conductors are given below:
ü Uniformly distributed stress using clamps significantly enhances the conductor’s lifetime.
ü Capability to endure high intension and high grip strength, with more than 95% CUTS.
ü Easy installation.
ü Perfect corrosion resistance.
Preformed guy grip dead end is widely used in the installation of the exposed conductor in any electric network transmission. While bolt type and hydraulic compression type grips dead-end are also used in many sectors nowadays, preformed guy grips are better than them both in terms of functionality and economics.
By providing incredible holding strength to the conductor, preformed grips ensure structural stability by providing incredible holding strength to the conductor. Most of the time, these wire sets are made of galvanized iron strands, aluminum-clad steel conductors, and other materials.
l Guy Grip For OPGW Cable
Following are the features and benefits of using guy grips for OPGW cables.
ü Specifically designed to connect OPGW cables to towers.
ü More mechanical strength with a double grip.
ü It can be used for both straight poles as well as those with turning angles.
l Short Span Guy Grip For ADSS Cable
With the sole function of connecting ADSS cables with poles/towers, these guy grips have the following characteristics:
ü Stable structure
ü Easy to install
ü Designed for short span length ADSS cables
