Kevlar Pulling Grips are the latest addition to Lewis' wire-mesh pulling grips line. These grips are made of plastic coated Kevlar fibers that are lightweight and yet much stronger than steel wires.
Kevlar grips are traditionally used in overhead or underground operations when pulling or suspending electric or fiber optic cable. These grips do not have the metallic fraying as traditional grips do thereby eliminating the chance of being injured from metallic strands that have been abraded.
The Kevlar strand can be used in essentially all grip configurations. However when used around coastal areas or in corrosive environments the stainless steel option is still superior. Kevlar grips can also be used when a metallic grip is unsuitable, such as when pulling into an energized environment. These grips are available in a wide range of sizes from 1/4" all the way to 8" in 1/4" & 1/2" increments.
Kevlar Grips' features:
•Much Lighter yet Stronger than Steel Grips
•Easier to Load and Remove
•No Frayed Wires
•No Wire Cuts and Contusions — “Ouchless”
