Cable Hanging Systems
Galvanised Steel & Non-Metallic (Nylon) Cable Supports
Ellis Patents Galvanised Steel Cable Hanging Systems are cable hangers manufactured from mild steel and hot dipped after manufacture to BS EN ISO 1461:1999. The cable hangers are used predominately for supporting structures or to hang cables on tunnel walls.
Network Rail and TfL (LUL) Approved Rail Cable Hangers are used extensively throughout the rail and public mass transit systems for supporting power, signal and communication cable runs – this includes LV-HV cable support and hanging for multi-core and bundled cables on extended horizontal cable runs and hanging cables on walls and support structures, e.g. tunnel cable installations and lighting systems. The cable hangers are robust in design due to the galvanisation process. They are corrosion resistant and in the event of a fire they wouldn’t produce smoke or fumes.
The cable hangers are inherently LSF and are therefore suitable for use in the rail industry. Installed throughout rail tunnels for LV and HV power and cable support, the steel cable hangers can be found both underground and overground.
The galvanised steel cable hangers are Approved for use on the London Underground (LUL).
Custom Hangers for Cables
Special designs of steel cable hangers are available on request. E.g. Girder Hanging, 90° Twist, side by side cables – custom brackets can be engineered to support specific tunnel wall arrangement and applications. J-hanger type cable supports are manufactured from materials suitable and approved for use in tunnel environments located on Network Rail infrastructure.

* Load Capacity: The recommended safe working load for individual hooks is detailed above. Brackets with multiple hook configurations are designed to operate with all hooks carrying their maximum load.
Non-Metallic J Type Hangers
Ellis Patents are committed to driving technology forward and improving product performance to prolong the lifespan of their cable cleats and cable hangers while improving overall rail industry safety.
As a result, Ellis Patents have now launched Pegasus Hangers – a modular cable hanging system that is stronger, lighter and more flexible than traditional galvanised steel type hangers.
Ellis Patents J Type rail cable hangers are installed throughout the global rail industry – this includes both J type cable hangers made from either galvanised steel or nylon to support rail cable runs.
Features & Benefits | Pegasus Cable Hangers
- Composite cable hanger and enclosed with corrosion resistant aluminium spine
- Up to 50% lighter than conventional steel hanging system, improves installation time by reducing installer fatigue
- Will not rust or corrode – non metallic cable supports
- Insulating hanger with excellent dielectric properties, no earth bonding or grounding required
- Curved profile hanger design allows natural sag
- Multiple combinations of cable hangers available
Cable Hooks for Temporary Hanging & Suspension of Cables
CableSafe cable hooks are ‘S’ shaped plastic cable hangers made from GRP (glass reinforced polyester) which are used to provide temporary support, suspend and retain all types of electrical cables (LV-HV power, control, instrumentation), welding cables, temporary lighting extension cords and hoses in the offshore energy, data centre, marine, petrochemical, mining, rail, chemical and power industries.
The cable hooks can be hung from scaffolding, cable trays, trough, ceiling grids and other overhead features to prevent cable entanglement and collapse of suspended cables during construction works and shutdowns/turnarounds. Cable hooks are ideal for the suspension of cables during construction or industrial maintenance and are approved by Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil, Saudi Aramco, Intel and international utilities. Cable hooks provide clean and well organised work floor/decks improving operational electrical safety and cable management.
View below our complete range of Cable Cleats used to clamp and retain low, medium and high voltage cables in the event of a short circuit, including 11kV/33kV MV-HV power cables – single, trefoil, quadrofoil and multiple bundled cable configurations can be cleated using Ellis Patents and Prysmian manufactured cable cleats in a choice of materials including nylon, stainless steel and aluminium.
