Ellis Patents has launched a basket tray clip that provides a strong and reliable means of securing cables with high fault levels to the increasingly popular cable management solution when used in conjunction with its heavy duty trefoil cleats.
The clip means basket tray can now compete with traditionally stronger cable management solutions such as ladder and tray on this kind of installation.
Richard Shaw, managing director of Ellis Patents said: "The idea for the clip came about while we were carrying out testing with Cablofil to look at the performance of its basket tray in short-circuit scenarios.
"At the time there was no proven means of safely securing heavy duty cleats to basket so that they would be guaranteed to stay in place in the event of a short-circuit. And with demand for basket tray growing significantly we decided to look at a way of delivering a fixing accessory that would do exactly this."
The resulting product, the basket tray clip is manufactured in 316L stainless steel and has been tested for use with Ellis Patents Vulcan, Emperor and Alpha trefoil cleats. The clip simply snaps in to position on the basket wires and the cleats are then secured to it using a standard set screw and flange nut
