Description / Price
Modular egg-form clamp made of stainless steel A4 cable consisting of 2 metal bowls and countersunk screw. Two sizes for rope diameters of 3 or 4 mm (two versions for 3 mm). The photo above shows three egg clamps, 3 mm, 'polished': one closed and two open.
Egg-shaped clamps have an attractive design and a clamping strength about as great as that of cable clamps/grips. They are used as decorative clamps in interiors or on playground equipment where, due to the risk of injury, no protruding screw clamps (as may be the case with other cable clamps) can be used. At FassadenGrün they serve as special clamps for the permanent attachment of 3 mm wire ropes to eye bolts, etc..by means of looping...but usually together with a rope tensioner (see picture below). Egg clamps for 4 mm are intended for heavy tensioning cables ('guy ropes'). Egg clamps aren't usable with Easy Kits from FassadenGrün and cannot necessarily be used as a replacement for U-shaped clamps because both rope strands within the clamp cannot be tightened against each other. If necessary, refer to the general information on the use of clamps, grips, etc..
Similar to the guidelines for Easy Kits, because in each cable strand with one egg clamp at each end, at least one of the two can be combined with an additional cable tensioner or rigging (turnbuckle M5 fork fork). A rope loop is then formed using the egg clamp -- see photos. The tensioner is then mounted between the loop and the eyebolt (or similar), tensioning the steel cable.
For 3 and 4 mm cables in facade greening, it is almost always sufficient to fasten each loop with just one egg clamp. In the case of heavily loaded cables, a second clamp can be used.
