Formed Wire

AFL has introduced an extensive line of Formed Wire Products. Depending on the application, these products provide protection from bending, compression, and abrasion; guying of poles in the construction of power and communication lines; or an aerial support for transmission and distribution lines where taping or strapping is not required during installation.

 

The armor rod design protects the conductor by reducing bending, compression and abrasion at the support point as well as protects against flashover damage. Armor rods are recommended as protection for spans greater than 300 ft. (91 m). Manufactured from either aluminum alloy, Alumoweld® or galvanized steel and are used with ACSR, AAC, AAAC, ACSS, SSAC, TW Types and ACAR conductors as well as Alumoweld and steel ground wire. All rod sets manufactured with right-hand lay (standard).
This is a double layer formed wire suspension for optical ground wire cables.
This is a formed wire dead end for optical ground wire cables.
This is a formed wire suspension for ADSS cables.
Line guards are designed to protect the conductor by reducing bending, compression,and abrasion at the support point, particularly where hand-ties are used. Line guards are recommended as protection for spans of less than 300 ft. (91 m). Manufactured from aluminum alloy, they are designed for use with ACSR, AAC, AAAC, ACSS, SSAC, TW Types and ACAR conductors. All guard sets are manufactured with right-hand lay as standard.
