Catenary wire systems

Catenary wire festoon systems provide an economical solution for applications where single, small section cables need to be carried over shorter distances. They also offer the benefit of quick and easy installation.

These systems feature a series of trolleys running along a taut nylon coated wire rope and a turnbuckle arrangement at each end. The maximum length of these systems can reach up to 20m with no intermediate supports required, this length governed only by the need to limit cable sag.

Catenary wire festoons are commonly used on small jib cranes and monorails, and in agricultural installations for cable or hose carrying applications. However, we carry an extensive inventory of accessories to suit almost any industry application. Trolleys can be fitted with cable clips to carry flatform cables, roundform cables, and air or water hoses, and capacities range from 5kg up to 20kg.

Here at Simbal, we only stock high quality products that we can be proud of. All of our catenary wire system trolleys feature stainless steel axles and nylon or steel wheels. Special systems with stainless steel ropes and trolleys are also available for use in particularly corrosive atmospheres.
