Cable Jointers Tents & Umbrellas

Jointers Tents

Jointers Tents

➡ Cable jointers tents protect the cable trench and joint bay from adverse weather effects while jointers are working on carrying out fault repairs, maintenance and installation of LV (Low Voltage), MV (Medium Voltage) and HV (High Voltage) cables.



Wind Calculations For Tents

There are several variables that dictate the performance of a tent in windy conditions:

  • Number of guy lines/straps used to secure the tent
  • Ground conditions and soil composition
  • Peg depth and angle
  • Angle and length of guy line/straps
  • Wind conditions
    • Constant
    • Gusting
    • Varying directions
  • Orientation of tent to wind direction
  • For any given extreme wind conditions a fully erected tent may withstand but an attempt to erect a tent in these conditions may be at risk
  • Measurement of wind speed equipment
  • Equipment and location of equipment relative to wind
  • Number of measurement devices required

Due to the above variables any theoretically calculated performance figure cannot be verified or applied in practise – additionally individual Health & Safety requirements across the industries dictate their own specific requirements including specific operator practises. Through training of operators in the use of the different specific tent designs it is recommended all operators perform a site risk assessment prior to the use of any tents for copper jointing or fibre splicing applications.
