Cable Pulling Materials & Equipment

Drum Handling Equipment for Cable Drums | LV MV HV up to 400kV

Thorne & Derrick International distribute the most extensive range of Cable Pulling & Cable Laying Equipment to enable the installation of low, medium and high voltage power cables into underground trench or duct – products also supplied for fibre optic blowing, subsea trenching, offshore umbilical installations and pulling armoured cables onto cable tray.

The use of the correct cable pulling equipment ensures accurate and faultless installation of LV-HV cables for reduced future operations and maintenance requirements and costs.

Factors to consider prior to pulling cables include:

  • Temperature range of cable
  • Bending radius of cable
  • Maximum tension of cable
  • Weight of the cable

Drum Jacks | hydraulic and screw-type cable jacks for LV-EHV drum lifting with spindle bars and locking collars in 3, 6 and 10 tonne lifting capacity – the jacks provide a mobile and stable solution for power cable installations, up to 20 tonne drum lifting towers are available.

Cable Winches

Power Cables

A range of trailer mounted cable winches for the installation of LV EHV Power Cables where high pulling tensions are required – all winches are designed with the operator in mind. Simple in operation and robustly engineered, these units are fitted with heavy duty diesel engines powering hydraulic transmission for smooth controlled pulling, and are fitted with a console mounted line tension indicator so the operator has a visual display of the pulling force applied.  All cable winches can be quickly pre-set so they do not exceed the required pulling tension.

Telecommunications

Designed to keep up with the fast moving telecommunications industry these winches were developed to meet the requirements for both the installation of delicate Fibre Cables where low pulling tensions are necessary and also for the more heavier Copper Cables. Other installation applications are coaxial cable, sub duct and even in certain conditions HV power cables.

Power Cables SEB FW3000 Cable Winch

SEB FW3000 Cable Winch | Power Cables | 3 Tonne capacity single capstan winch fitted with a free spooling payout system which makes it a one-man only operation. The unit is fitted with a pull load indicator with read out via dial gauge.

SEB AW1000 Cable Winch | Telecoms Cables

SEB AW1000 Cable Winch | Telecoms Cables | the AW1000 assist winch is designed as a versatile multi- purpose winch which can be used for the installation of Fibre Optic Cable & Sub Duct and also for pulling the bond back through the duct or trench.

Cable Socks

Thorne & Derrick distribute the Slingco range of cable socks to suit all types of cable and conductor pulling through cable ducts, conduits and trenches – cable socks are available with diameters up to 20 inches (500mm) and break loads exceeding 120,000lbs. Cable socks must not be used to their approximate breaking strain limit and a sensible safety factor should always be used.

Cable Socks | Single-eye pulling socks manufactured from galvanised steel wire (stainless steel and Kevlar options), 6-130mm cable outside diameters (OD's).

Trench Cable Laying & Overhead Line Stringing

Cable installation products are used in such diverse applications as overhead line stringing, trench cable laying, fibre optic cable pulling, and conduit riser supports.

All our standard cable socks are precisely hand woven from high tensile galvanised or stainless steel wire or aramid. In addition, we have the facility to offer a custom cable sock design service for specific applications, where socks with diameters in excess of 400mm and breaks exceeding 50,000kg can be designed.
