Suspension & Maneuvering Glands

Suspension (NU) Glands

Wedge type rope glands are used for the lifting and maneuvering of wire ropes of every description and for their anchoring, suspension or tensioning. Embodying the wedge principal, no white metalling is necessary. They are readily assembled, their split construction enabling the to be fitted on the rope at any given point.

NU glands function as both an overframe or underframe gland. Their flat base allows for bolted connections to shaft steel or headframe girders making them the optimal choice for suspending guide ropes and rubbing ropes. NU glands are suitable for ropes of all types and constructions and a wide range of sizes is available. All glands are proof load tested to twice the safe working load followed by non destructive examination.
