Cable cleats and clamps designed and manufactured by Ellis will play a role in ensuring safety at this summer’s Pan-American Games in Lima, having been installed to secure electrical cables in substations that feed the Peruvian capital’s games infrastructure.
Taking place from 26 July to 11 August, the Pan-American Games will be the biggest sporting event ever held in Peru, with competitors from 41 nations competing in 413 events across 38 sports, including for the first time body building and surfing.
Tony Conroy, Ellis’ sales director, said, “The Pan-American Games is a massive event for Peru, and we’re delighted that so much trust has been put in us and our cable cleats to have them selected to ensure the safety of the electrical cables supplying power to the multiple venues.”
Ellis’ Alpha cable cleats and 1A cable clamps were specified by RL Ingenieros SAC, and installed by Juegos Panamericanos 2019, having been purchased through its Peruvian distributor, Logytec and Ellis’ Latin American business development manager, Gabriela Castro.
The cleats are manufactured in extruded aluminium (6000 series) to BS EN 755 – making them more robust than cast aluminium cleats. They have been designed to be easy to fit, thanks to a one bolt fixing mechanism and zinc plated steel closing fasteners, and are available with two base options; aluminium or polymer – the latter available for use in installations where galvanic corrosion could be an issue.
