In order to allow for the linear expansion of larger cables the support positions are often broadly spaced. Such broad spacing would put very high point loading on the cables which could lead to long term failure. The shoe cleats are designed to allow this potentially damaging load to be spread over a significantly longer length thus avoiding any potential cable damage. Based on the 370 series of aluminium 2 bolt cleats with the shoes made from 316L stainless steel with rubber lining. The shoes are designed and formed with the correct bend radius to match the cable’s expansion curve.
