Guy Dead Ends are designed for guying of poles in the construction of power and communication lines. Guy dead ends are designed for use with standard guy strands of 1" diameter or less. Manufactured from similar wire, the dead ends can be applied to galvanized steel or Alumoweld® guy wire. Unless otherwise specified, all dead ends and guy strand are left hand lay. Once in place, under normal conditions, guy dead ends hold their grip regardless of the condition of the conductor to which they are attached, relaxed or in tension.
To simplify installation, AFL Conductor Accessories' guy dead ends are designed with offset ends. This feature is important in that toward the end of the installation of the dead end, the tips are easier to handle and wrap around the cable. No additional modification
Reusable after Initial Installation
Guy dead ends may be removed and reapplied twice after initial installation to retension guy strands. Should it become necessary to remove a guy dead end after it has been installed for a period of three months, it should be replaced with a new dead end.
For ease of identification to guy strand size, the dead ends are color coded on both legs of the product.
Guy dead ends are manufactured with a cabled loop for all strand sizes.
