Restraint Cables

High-Quality Restraint Cables

For safety purposes, restraint cables are frequently used on explosion venting panels to keep the panels from becoming flying projectiles. With this in mind, we offer a variety of construction cables designed for optimum safety and different applications.

Restraint Cable Application

About Our Cables

Most applications utilize our 3/16" diameter for lightweight single-skin panels or our 1/4" diameter for heavy or double-walled insulated panels. All cables are manufactured from a 7 x19 strand of galvanized wire rope and have eyelets mechanically clamped on both ends. These eyelets – sized 3/8" for the 3/16" cables and 1/2" for the 1/4" cables – will generate the full breaking strength of their respective cables.

Stainless steel cables are also available for areas of high corrosion. Additionally, our dual cable systems are sometimes used for complex applications or when jobs specify that the cables comply with NFPA68. If you're interested in seeing an example of our typical restraints, please read our cable detail document.
