Cable Straps To Support Rail Cables

Balata Straps are polyester cable straps designed to provide a secure, reliable and robust cable supporting method suitable for use in all outdoor railway environments.

Used for supporting MV, LV, signalling and communication cables across the existing Balata cable containment found throughout the London Underground (LUL) rail network.

Balata straps meet Powerlink and London Underground specifications for securing, strapping and supporting cables on the existing containment systems across bridges – this includes LV, MV, HV power and pilot cable support.

Thorne & Derrick distribute an extensive range of cable strap, clamps and cleats with Network Rail and London Underground (TfL) approval to support and retain rail cables distributing low, medium and high voltage electricity, including 11kV 33kV MV HV.
