Thorne & Derrick International, based in the UK, stock and distribute the complete range of cable cleats and cable hangers manufactured by Ellis Patents including Vulcan cleats for short circuit retention and cable protection of LV (Low Voltage), MV (Medium Voltage) and HV (High Voltage) cable systems in single-way or trefoil installation.

Ellis Patents Vulcan+ Cable Cleats are stainless steel trefoil cable cleats for cable diameters ranging from 19-101mm for cable applications where highest level of short circuit withstand and protection is required.

Vulcan+ cable cleats are compact in design for easy installation when space is limited and offer the ultimate protection against the harshest environmental conditions.

The cable cleat comes with an integral Low Smoke and Fume Zero Halogen Polymeric liner and base pad offering the cables protection during short-circuit conditions.

International Standard IEC 61914:2009

Ellis Patent cable cleats with international specifications are used to clamp and retain LV MV HV cables including 11kV and 33kV networks depending on short-circuit calculations according to IEC61914 calculations.

For cable installations where corrosion protection is required, including onshore and offshore substations or hazardous area locations, see our complete range of  ➡ stainless steel cable cleats.

Installing Cable Cleats

Installation instructions for single way cables using Vulcan+ cleats manufactured by Ellis Patents:

Bolt the cleat to the support structure using either the single central or two outer fixing positionsInstall the cables, when necessary remove the removable base pad to allow for the larger cables in the cleats rangeRemove the flange nut. Bend the two edges of the cleat around the cables until they are parallel. Locate the screw into adjacent hole and replace the flange nutTighten Flange Nut
1. Bolt the cable  cleat to the support structure using either the single central or two outer fixing positions2. Install the cables, when necessary remove the removable base pad to allow for the larger cables in the trefoil cleats range3. Remove the flange nut. Bend the two edges of the cleat around the cables until they are parallel. Locate the screw into adjacent hole and replace the flange nut4. Tighten flange nut

WARNING – Do not over tighten the cable cleat. The liner should be in good firm contact with the cable but does not need to be so tight that the cable bulges at either side of the liner.

Vulcan Cable Cleats With Twist Foot

Twist Foot Design 

The NEW Twist Foot Design from Ellis Patents provides reduced installation times and labour savings when installing cable cleats – traditionally the Vulcan cable cleat range required the additional inventory and purchase of fixing kits (cleat fasteners, washers and channel nuts) however with the new redesign the cable cleat is supplied pre-assembled for immediate site installation.

The increased speed of cable cleat installation is achieved by the integral Twist Foot base – just Fit, Twist & Tighten.
