Cable Cleats and Clamps

Cable cleats are essential components in the electrical installation world, designed to secure and manage cables effectively, ensuring safety and reliability.

At the heart of Panduit's offerings, our cable cleats range from polymer and aluminium cable cleats to stainless steel, all engineered to meet diverse industry needs. Panduit products are specifically crafted to prevent short circuits by providing resistance to the electromechanical forces that can occur, safeguarding both personnel and equipment.

Panduit's commitment to innovation is evident in our cable cleat offerings, including heavy-duty cable cleats for extreme conditions and versatile trefoil cleats for specific applications. With a focus on safety, efficiency, and reliability, our products are designed to meet the highest standards, available to buy online in the UK and globally. Whether you need a cable cleat clamp or a complete cable cleat installation solution, Panduit has you covered.

What is the Purpose of a Cleat?

The primary purpose of a cable cleat is to secure cable installations, preventing movement that can lead to damage or disconnection. In the event of a short circuit, Panduit cable cleats offer critical protection, minimizing the risk of fire or explosion by ensuring cables remain contained and secure.

What are Cable Tray Cleats More Commonly Used For?

Cable tray cleats are commonly used to organise and support cables within a cable tray system, ensuring a neat and secure installation. They are particularly valuable in environments where multiple cables run parallel, such as in data centres, utilities, and industrial settings, providing stability and protection against mechanical stress.

Which Cable Type is Most Suitable for Cable Cleats?

The suitability of cable types for cable cleats largely depends on the installation's specific requirements. Panduit's extensive range includes solutions for single conductor cables, trefoil arrangements, and multicore configurations, ensuring optimal compatibility and security for any cable type.

How Do I Choose Cable Cleats?

With the Panduit Cleat kAlculator, It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3 to find the correct cleat for your application:

  1. SELECT cable layout
  2. INPUT cable diameter
  3. INPUT peak short circuit current

The app provides part and spacing details and outputs cleat solutions to a downloadable excel file, supporting bill of materials and engineering take offs.

  • Prevents damage to equipment or personnel resulting from a short circuit fault.
  • Helps you to select, specify and install the correct Panduit cable cleat every time.

How Far Apart Should Cable Cleats be?

The spacing of cable cleats is a critical consideration for ensuring the stability and integrity of the cable installation. The distance between cleats is determined by the cable diameter, the weight of the cable, and the potential electromechanical forces during a fault condition. Panduit's cable cleat spacing calculation tools and charts assist in determining the optimal spacing for your specific project needs, ensuring compliance with industry standards and enhancing safety.
