Fasteners & Mounting Clips

To ensure a trouble-free installation, only Protectowire supplied or approved fasteners should be used. Our supplied fasteners are generally designed to lightly clamp the detector which enables a tension to be applied progressively. The use of non-approved fasteners may physically damage the Detector and in some cases may void the Detector’s warranty.

WAW Clips Types N and P

One of the most versatile fasteners is the WAW Clip. This clip may be used for ceiling or wall mount applications, as well as all corners. The fastener is a clip which wraps around the detector and is available in either nylon (WAW-N) or polypropylene (WAW-P) material depending upon the installation environment. As a general rule, nylon WAW clips are preferred for applications where the ambient temperature is expected to be low, such as in freezer warehouses. The installation temperature range for the WAW Series fasteners is -40°F (40°C) to 190°F (88°C).

TR-5G Insulated Standoff

The TR-5G Insulated Standoff can be used to install Protectowire on or above coal conveyors or from other applicable mechanical structures. The standoffs may be installed through holes in covers or brackets by means of the 1/4″-20 locknuts provided. In another type of installation, the standoffs may be connected to threaded rods suspended from the ceiling by means of coupling nuts (not provided). Since this fastener does not grasp the detector tightly, it is necessary to use other fasteners, such as WAW Clips, to place sufficient tension on the Protectowire to prevent it from drooping.

Temperature Rating: -70°F to 300°F ( -57°C to 149°C)
