Messenger Wire

Messenger wire is a carrier or support wire which is designed to simplify the installation of the detector in areas where mounting is difficult due to the lack of appropriate support structures or mounting surfaces. Messenger wire is available with any model detector on special order. It consists of high-tensile strength stainless steel wire, which is wound around the detector at the rate of approximately one turn per foot (.3 m).

TR-24 & TR-24-S Turnbuckle

The TR-24 and TR-24- S Turnbuckle are used to attach and add tension to one end of messenger wire to a supporting structure.

  • TR-24 Materials: Steel construction with aluminum casing
  • TR-24-S Materials: Stainless steel construction with aluminum casing

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.
