Formed Wire

Formed Wire types:
Top Ties and Side Ties:
Distribution Top Ties
Material: aluminum-clad steel wire
For use in the top groove of ANSI C29.5 interchangeable headstyle insulators (C or F neck as noted)
Compatible with AAC, AAAC and ACSR conductors
Tie pad included on all sizes
Top ties are superior to hand ties in vibration prone areas and may be used over armor rods (appropriate dampers should be used in severe vibration situations)
Consult factory for other conductor sizes

Side Ties
Material: aluminum coated steel wire
For use in the side groove of ANSI C29.5 interchangeable headstyle insulators
Compatible with AAC, AAAC, and ACSR conductors
Tie pads included

Distribution Deadend Grips:
Material: aluminum-clad steel wire.
Compatible with AAC, AAAC and ACSR conductors, and are partial-tension devices.
Used to deadend bare or jacketed conductors on primaries or secondaries.

House Service Grips:
Material: aluminum-clad steel wire.
Compatible with AAC, AAAC and ACSR conductors, and are partial-tension devices capable of holding 50% of the rated breakingstrength of the conductors noted.
Used to deadend neutral messengers in service drop applications.

Armor Rods and Line Guards:
Armor Rods:
Material: High Strength Aluminum Alloy
Armor rods prevent damage to the conductor by increasing the stiffness of the conductor at Support points. Abrasion, bending and clamping stresses are also controlled.

Line Guards (Aluminum):
Material: Aluminum Alloy
Use line guards under hand ties or tap clamps to protect conductor from abrasion wear
For use with AAC, AAAC, and ACSR conductors
Line guards for double insulator applications are also available, consult factory
Right hand lay standard

Spool Ties:
Material: Aluminum alloy wire
For use with standard spool insulators (diameter of 1 -3/4")
Design fully loops around the insulator
Compatible with AAC, AAAC, and ACSR conductors
Tie pad included
Right hand lay standard

Quick Spool Ties
-Material: Aluminum alloy wire
-For use with standard spool insulators (diameter of 1 -3/4")
-Easier installation
-Compatible with AAC, AAAC, and ACSR conductors
-Tie pad included
-Right hand lay standard

Formed Wire Cross Reference Tables

Helical Suspension Clamps:
Single Helical Suspension Clamp For use on AAAC, AAC, ACSR, Compacted ACSR, ACSS, and ACSS/TW. For high temperature conductor such as ACSS, ACCR, etc., add "-HT" as a suffix to the catalog number.
