Cable hoods / dampers

Fig. 1. Fully installed cable damper made from rubber

To ensure the long-term load-bearing capacity of constructions, and in particular of suspension and cable-stayed bridges, their cables need to be fitted with special protective elements. For this purpose, we design and produce cable hoods and cable dampers.

Cable hoods:
Cable hoods protect the cable anchorage against the ingress of rain and condensation water and impurities thus preventing corrosion.

Cable dampers:
By installing cable dampers, induced cable and suspension vibrations are reduced and the cables and supporting structures are protected against damage.
