Cable cleat manufacturer, Ellis, has once again demonstrated its innovative approach to product development with the launch of the twist-foot Vulcan+.

Designed for installation on cable channel and ladder with inverted rungs, the new cleat features a unique pre-installed fixing mechanism that significantly reduces installation time and simplifies the ordering process. It is also short circuit tested to meet the stringent requirements of IEC61914.

Stephen Walton, Ellis’ chief engineer, says: “We pride ourselves on having a market-leading product range, and a global reputation as the number one cable cleat manufacturer, but we are not a company that will ever rest on its laurels. We are always looking at ways to enhance our current offering or add to it with innovative new solutions – and the twist-foot Vulcan+ is a perfect example of this approach.”

“We’ve taken an already extremely successful product and developed it in a manner that broadens its appeal; not just in terms of channel usage, but also by turning it into a truly quick-fit, easy to order cable cleat solution.”

The twist-foot fixing mechanism operates by simply placing the Vulcan+ cleat into the channel and twisting it 90 degrees. It is suitable for trefoil cables ranging in diameter from 19 to 58mm, and single cables between 30 and 104mm.
