The Diamond® “O” Span Clamp is used in CATV installations to provide drop wire takeoffs along the span and relieve tension on the drop wire at this point. The Diamond “O” Span Clamp was developed for CATV with the only true “O” configuration in the industry. The Clamping plates are made of 1/4” thick, high
grade aluminum alloy to prevent distortion of the plates while being fastened on the messenger strand. The true “O” configuration provides a stronger curl
than the hook design used in other “O” clamps on the market. The “O” design provides better retention of the drop wire and eliminates the problem of an
attached wire being loosened by wind whip. All of the steel parts are corrosion resistant due to Diamond’s quality galvanizing process.
PPC's unique, proprietary approach to mechanical galvanizing and raw materials standards ensure that Diamond parts can withstand corrosive environments for decades, a factor that is especially important today since replacement costs are so high.
