Cable protection system

Protection first

The GANTREX TrenchLok™ cable protection system efficiently and economically protects cranes’ power cables from damages and problems caused by crossing vehicles traffic in ports and steel mills. The cables are also sheltered against debris entering the trench and adverse weather conditions. In addition, it eliminates tripping hazards for pedestrians. Our cable protection system is made of multiple components:
  • The GANTREX TrenchLok™ cable trench cover – a continuous semi-flexible belt made of steel reinforced rubber fixed on the quay surface along one edge via a stainless-steel strip.
  • The cable steel channel – a corrosion-resistant steel protection channel, cast in the quay, where cables are laid.
We also provide customised cable anchors to fit your needs and minimize the amount of cable required for your crane to travel.

Gantrex simple or double cable channel

Cable Channel

The channel is U-shaped profile made of corrosion-resistant steel.  It is cast in the quay to form the cable trench where power cables are laid down while unwinding from cable reels. Compared to the concrete channels, which can be subject to erosion with the constant use and therefore resulting friction of the cables movement in and out, the durable smooth surface of the lateral walls and base of the channel (provided by the constitition of laminated steel) is the best protection for the crane cables. We are able to study and design customized solutions for all your needs.

Gantrex cable anchors system for Cable protection system

Cable anchors

To minimize the amount of cable needed for a given crane travel distance, the cable is usually terminated and electrically connected at the center point of the crane’s required travel. It is at this center point where a "cable anchor" would be placed inside a formed concrete vault. Depending on the cable’s characteristics, GANTREX will custom design and supply customized solutions for all your needs. They are standard supplied in stainless steel.
