Cable & Wire Guiding Equipment in Manholes

Supplier: ATS Enterprises

Cables are laid in conduit networks particularly in urban areas. When the cable is fed from the cable drum into the underground conduit system, it has to pass over the edge of the manhole into the conduit.


This inevitably causes damage to the cable coating if appropriate auxiliary devices are not used. Winching tensions are hard to regulate and there is a considerable risk for installation engineers.

Katimex manhole cable guide bows and pulley sets are designed for precisely this application: they feed the cable from the drum into the conduit nearly without friction and without kinks.

Cable coating and winching wire are preserved and the required winching power reduced.

Besides the special manhole cables guide bows, Katimex also offers a wide range of auxiliary devices for guiding the cable over the edge of the manhole into the conduit.

The tried and tested Pipe Eel and Cable-Jet pulling systems also make cable laying in conduits significantly easier.

The cable guiding and run-off frame is constructed to provide central feeding of the cable from the drum to the roller system. It is erected between the manhole and the cable drum.

The cable runs automatically to the centre over two angled steel rollers. The robust steel construction can be folded together and is transported easily.

Heavy manhole covers can also be lifted easily with the portable manhole cover-lifting device. After lifting, the manhole cover is moved out of the working area. The manhole cover can be replaced quickly in the same way.
