New ‘No Bolts’ Cleat Is Launched

ETS Cable Components are proud to be part of the development and subsequent launch of a new range of cleats which requires no conventional fixings to supporting steel-work.

The design also allows for additional cleats to be stacked on top of one another with nothing more than a small turn of a unique fixing lock.

The concept was driven by initial discussions between Network Rail and ETS, the resultant product range providing a unique cable cleat solution to alleviate a critical Health and Safety issue the client’s engineers had experienced.

Following subsequent design meetings and the continual evolution of the design concept over the last year, we are extremely pleased to announce that the finished product range is now available.

Key features:

  • No bolts – allowing for rapid installation through a simple ‘turn and lock’ mechanism onto supporting steel-work!
  • Easily stackable – additional cables can be added without disturbing existing installations in any way.
  • Manufactured from London Underground 1-085 approved material.
  • Cleat sizes suitable for fixing cables ranging from 18-55mm in diameter available.

ETS Cable Components Operations Director, Kevin Moloney, said:

“It was a privilege to get the initial call from Network Rail requesting our help to come up with a suitable cleating solution. This is testament to our reputation in solving problems for customers.

The whole process from initial design meeting to approving the prototype progressed extremely quickly and was helped greatly by the ingenuity of the design team from Ellis Patents. The determination of Network Rail and their desire to see improvements to the network, whilst safeguarding those working on it is a superb example of innovation directly benefitting on-site safety.”

The new boltless cleat will be available to view at the Infrarail show at Excel on 12 – 14th April, but for further product information in the meantime please contact ETS on: 0208 405 6789 or via
