Making light work of gripping tasks

A FOUR-IN-ONE device for joining, tensioning, anchoring and insulating wire, is how Gripple describes its Tensulator system.

Designed to handle 2mm to 3.15mm wire, the Tensulator comprises a glass filled nylon casing with stainless steel springs and ceramic rollers.

Wire is fed into the Tensulator and tensioned by a special tool which can also be used for restraining at a later stage.

Gripple says the system can withstand strains of up to 200kg and it can also be used to tension electric fencing wire, the Tensulator acting as an insulator. (01142-752255, website www.gripple.com)
