BAND-IT Clamps | BAND-IT BAND-FAST Stainless Steel Clamps
Cable Cleats & Clamps for Electrical Installations
BAND-IT BAND-FAST CLAMPS
BAND-IT BAND-FAST clamps are a low cost alternative to cable cleats as they are faster to install, lower profile and need no additional fixings – the cable clamps utilising BAND-IT strapping bands are short-circuit tested up to 76.3kA.
The cable clamps have a width of 15.88mm (5/8″) and are made from 316 grade stainless steel. Uncoated cable clamps are also available with a width of 19.1mm (3/4″) . The PPA coated cable clamps have passed IEC61914:2015 short circuit test in a trefoil configuration – with short circuit fault current ratings of single wrap up to 50.8kA and double wrap up to 76.3kA.
BAND-FAST clamps can be installed using the Bantam Tool – Order code – BAND-IT C075.

Test Report for BAND-IT Company BAND-FAST Cable Bands
45.5 kA, 50.8kA & 76.3kA Short Circuit Current Rating Tests | Single Wrap
Clamp Assembly Reference | LFAC-F1015M***-A900
Single / Double Wrap | Single
Band Width | 5/8″
Fastener Type | Clip
Material | 316 Stainless Steel
Band Coated / Uncoated | Coated with PPA571
Cable | LV Low Voltage 0.6-1kV, PVC, Class 2 Cu, Ø 38-39mm Outside Diameter.
Conclusion | The tested combination passed the test for: 45.5kA peak (600mm spacings) and 50.8kA peak (300mm spacings) short circuit currents according IEC 61914 Edition 2.0 (2015-11), clause 9.5.3: resistant to mechanical forces, withstanding more than one short circuit. After the second short circuit peak test a dielectric test is performed upon the cable clamps at 1kVac for 1 minute after 2 minute pre-wetting by water spray. Result: Pass. BAND-FAST cable clamps demonstrate a short-circuit current withstand of 76.3kA when installed in double wrap formation for the stable support of LV MV HV cables in short-circuit conditions.
