ARMOR-GRIP® Support


ARMOR-GRIP Support, intended for use on aluminum based conductors with a diameter range of .390" to 1.828", is designed to be used with clamp-top horizontal and vertical line post insulators. The ARMOR-GRIP Support is designed to reduce static and dynamic stress at the support point, so that the conductor is better able to withstand the effects of vibration than with armor-clamp attachments. It also helps protect the conductor in the support area against flashover.

  • Thermal Rating (Continuous) 200°C
  • A maximum line angle of 30° may be turned using a single ARMOR-GRIP Support, and a maximum of 60° using a Double-Support unit.
  • Will withstand a pulloff load from the trunnion pins of the insulator cap of 5,000 lbs. applied in any direction
  • Double Support is available
  • ARMOR-GRIP Support Body: Ductile iron casting. Comprises the bottom half of the ARMOR-GRIP Support housing unit. The conductor range is cast into the inside of the body.
  • An elastomer insert is specifically formulated for resistance to ozone attack, weathering, extreme high and low temperature variations, and compression set.
  • Unbalanced Loading. The ARMOR-GRIP Support will withstand an unbalanced load of approximately 10 to 20% of the conductor RBS before initial slip occurs. Slightly higher unbalanced loads will be obtained after the unit has been in service for a period of time.
