Cable cleats are devices used to restrain and support electrical cables in a wide range of applications, including power transmission and distribution, industrial facilities, and oil and gas installations. Cable cleats typically consist of a metal frame or clamp that is designed to fit around the cable, with one or more bolts or fasteners to secure the cable in place.

The main purpose of cable cleats is to prevent electrical cables from moving during short circuits or other electrical faults, which can cause them to whip and flail dangerously, potentially causing damage to the cables and surrounding equipment or posing a safety risk to personnel. By providing a secure, reliable means of cable restraint, cable cleats help to ensure the safety and integrity of electrical systems. There are many different types of cable cleats available, designed to meet various application requirements and standards. Some cable cleats are designed for use in harsh environments, such as offshore oil and gas installations, and are made from materials such as stainless steel or non-metallic polymers. Others are designed for use in low-voltage applications or in confined spaces, and may be smaller and more lightweight. Ultimately, the choice of cable cleat will depend on the specific application and the requirements of the relevant standards and regulations.

Continuum Blue has helped to provide detailed analysis work around the integrity of the cable cleats, including structural, electrical charge, thermal ratings and thermal expansion in critically confined spaces.
