Cable Clamps

What Are BAND-FAST Cable Clamps?

BAND-FAST is ready to use stainless steel strapping and cable banding which is pre-cut and pre-assembled with a buckle. The pre-assembled cable clamp gives you an edge over your competition as it saves up to 30% time and labour costs for your large LV-HV cable installation projects.

BAND-FAST cable clamps manufactured by BAND-IT, the market-leading supplier of stainless steel cable ties, are a low cost alternative to cable cleats.

Two options are available: a PPA coated version and an uncoated version with captive clip both manufactured from type 316 stainless steel. The BAND-FAST cable clamps are quicker to install reducing labour costs and do not require any additional cable fixings to provide cable containment and short circuit restraint to LV, MV & HV Power Cables.

The cable clamps have successfully been utilised on the following applications:

  • Offshore Platforms / FPSO’s
  • Shipbuilding
  • Refineries / Petrochem
  • Public Buildings
  • Electromechanical Force Testing

BAND-FAST cable clamps are also available in different materials including:  Monel®, Inconel®, AL6XN®, Titanium, 316 Stainless Steel – specified for both onshore, offshore and subsea cable support and strapping in industrial and hazardous area locations.
